Ideas from the Most Amazing Dining Rooms

Entertain in style by creating a dining oasis. See what these three amazing homes have done with their dining rooms.

Create a theme: Split-bamboo shades give a dining area a tropical boost, along with a Jansen table, a Marc Newson wicker chair and a throne-like vintage wicker chair from a Paris flea market.

Create a mood: Use paintings to transport the diner, as this mural does. The handpainted Stark mural depicts West Point on the Hudson River. Reproduction Queen Anne chairs surround the 18th-century English dining table.

PLUS: A Peek at Some Unique Homes

REALLY transport the diner by setting up outdoors. A freestanding pavilion on the terrace of this Ocean House residence was transformed into a private dining room with 360-degree views. The patio furniture is from Restoration Hardware. If you don't have a pavilion, set up a tent.
