Longing to go on a summer picnic or lounge in a plein air bistro? The cheery little dining room pictured above pulls the carefree feeling of outdoor dining into your cottage home. Bringing together a mix of natural textures and bright colors, as well as some mismatched furniture styles, creates a chic yet communal dining area.
Varied seating options create an easy charm, as if chairs have been pulled up impromptu to accommodate any and all who care to break bread. Scattered touches of primary colors flit about the otherwise neutral backdrop like the chirping birds on the curtains, and a bright white and goldenrod runner with coordinating pillows ensure a French country look. The natural bleached rug and primitive wicker pendant lamp also help to bring the outdoors in.
Anchoring it all is a rustic dining table without pretension but with plenty of character. Find other trestle table and reclaimed barn wood table ideas by viewing our Farmhouse Tables collection.
