Today, we have a wonderful guest post from design writer Mari Rose from 

Hi, all! It's Mari from Design Shuffle, a fabulous online gathering place for interior designers and design enthusiasts. There you will find interior design inspiration and lots of decorating ideas. As part of my job I often have the opportunity to visit great design blogs like 212 Concept to share some of the beautiful and interesting rooms I've discovered during my online travels.

Today's guest post is all about modern dining rooms. Filled with inspiration, from furnishings to lighting, color and art, these eight spaces have one thing in common—the great look of modern style. Please enjoy!


This small dining space is all about wood, and the view of course. The table, built-in seating, chairs and even the contemporary artwork is created from wood. A beautiful clear glass and metal pendant light hangs above the table.

A modern interior design gets an updated traditional chandelier and a splash of beautiful color in the triptych cityscape. Dark walls and floor add drama to the space.


A curvy white and brown contemporary rug creates a cool background for this table and mismatched modern chairs. Glass-front cabinets, white pendants and quirky artwork complete this interesting design.

A modern dining room goes for a bold colorful look with furniture, rug, glass tabletop accessories, decorative pillows and artwork. The Wishbone chairs in gorgeous blue hues are a perfect complement to the brilliant blue modern armchair.

This sleek and stylish dining room in chocolate and white abounds in modern interior design ideas. From the photographic art to the shadowy pattern on the floor, this room is stunning.


Lighting becomes the focal point in this beautiful wood paneled dining room. Golden metallic-lined black pendant lights (only one can be seen here) hang above the long polished wood table.


This warm and inviting modern dining room with a retro feel showcases wood and soft antique rugs underfoot, as well as the spectacular ocean view just outside.


Modern dining rooms may often be very close to the kitchen. Here, with modern pendants lights overhead, the integration of the two spaces is seamless. This beautiful dining space with banquette is at once casual, yet refined.
