10 Dining Spaces Made for Making Memories

Share It

So many of my childhood memories revolve around my parents’ dining room. It’s played host to all four of us kids’ high school and college graduation dinners, 15 years worth of Christmas breakfasts, and every birthday of mine since I was 13. Painted in a rich cranberry color, the room has become a symbol for laughter and bonding, and a place where both sides of my family have cried tears of joy and sadness. That being said, I’m never surprised when other homeowners gush over how important their dining room has been to them, too. Over time, their spaces have gathered more and more memories, each one becoming permanently etched in the grain of a wooden table or the cushion of a chair.

To celebrate all the magic that can happen around a dinner table, we’ve rounded up 10 of our favorite dining spaces. Some are casual. Others are formal. No matter the style, it’s not hard to imagine the good times that have been had around each. They’re all perfect backdrops for such fun, you simply have to click through to ogle at them. Enjoy! —Garrett

    :-) they are a long way off, but I am pretty sure that those ‘ceramic dutch houses’ in the third room are gifted to business class travelers on the Royal Dutch Airlines – filled with Gin! I bet they add to the cosy feel!

    I Like Aaron and Kat’s 13-foot table dinning space. It’s quite simple and looking beautiful.
    Thanks for sharing these amazing ideas with us!
