Amp up the art deco style even more with jewel tones, gold-finish light fixtures, and black trim. Within this trend lies an alluring cottage core design, which boasts floral patterns, teapots, lace, and anything that makes you think of your grandmother's house.
Hop onto this trend easily by hanging a busy floral pattern in your dining room. Antique furniture and light fixtures become the highlights in this style and wainscoting, intricate wood-carved details, and hardwood flooring.

Repeating hexagons give the look of honeycomb, which is the perfect pattern for an organic dining room with lots of natural materials.
Concrete textured wallpaper looks sleek and modern and mimics an upscale penthouse or industrial apartment without breaking the bank. Put this wallpaper up opposite a fireplace and use multiple candles on your table for a maximum rustic effect. Now that you possess these top wallpaper ideas for your dining room, it's time to finish the rest of your space with furnishings, light fixtures, and a decor theme.
