Inspired by the muted blues and grays in our coastal storm clouds, designer Mercer Moore has created a dream dining room.
To anchor this room, Mercer chose this rug with the same hues as the clouds: muted shades of gray, blue, and ivory. Its interesting that such calm colors are found in a storm!
Watch the slideshow to see how Mercer layered the room. You will see these colors in her design choices for this room:

Modern Farmhouse Dining Room Design by Alli Sypert
Alli's Designer Choices
Rustic Dining Table
Every farmhouse dining room must have a rustic dining table centered in the room. You can choose a rectangular table or a round one, but wood is often the best choice. After all, a farmhouse home is incomplete without a wooden touch!
Allie chose a beautifully pieced, solid wood table is made from 100% reclaimed lumber, sanded and minimally finished with a stony gray wash to highlight the natural grain and distressing.
Dining Room Chairs
For the chairs on both ends of the dining table, Allie chose the COLEY ARMLESS chair! Simplistic in form, this casually sophisticated armless chair features a tailored off white linen blend slipcover with a plush cushion seat and kidney pillow for added comfort.
A stylish wood chair with surprising comfort, the Chieftain chair is made of solid rubber wood with a wire brush cerused black finish. Classically inspired and designed with modern lines this chair looks fantastic teamed with the Coley chairs. It will also work great when the dining room table serves as a desk or as a simple pull up chair for additional living room seating.
Alli's farmhouse style is so comforting! She mixes the woods, dark and light.... This style shows us that furniture doesn't have to be an exact match! It is so comforting to know this, especially if you already have a well loved piece you want to keep.
If you dining room has space for an accent chair, this one is perfect! It is La-Z-Boy's JAZZ CHAIR! It's cool and sophisticated - as the name suggests - and a perfect choice for smaller rooms. Perched high on slender legs, the slightly rounded shelter back and gently sloped arms create a welcoming silhouette.
Alli continues to add more texture to this beautiful dining room plan with this hammered metal, drum shaped, accent table in antiqued, copper bronze with dusty stone glaze. So unique to find this in a dining room!
How perfect is this? This small bench has multiple uses and combines the farmhouse look with a hint of nautical with the roped legs. Perfect for our gulf coast rooms!
Bands of galvanized metal are woven to create a modern farmhouse look, accented with rustic dark bronze inner and outer ledges. Mirror features a generous 1 1/4" bevel and may be hung horizontally or vertically.
Alli layered two rugs in the room, begining with an almost monochrome straw jute rug, and topping it with a richly dyed wool rug. This anchors the room beautifully.
First layer: Hand woven jute rug
Second layer: Hand knotted wool rug from Turkey
New to our store! "Forest Mood 1" abstract painting with the rich hues of the forest anchors the room's lighter neutral colors. All of the painting's colors are represented in the various accessories that Alli chose!
Alli created this dynamic design with this impressive assortment of traditional, botanical prints. Each masculine floral press showcases forest green, taupe, and brown shades on an aged, off-white background. Petite, dark brown frames with a heavy mocha wash and a gold glaze are paired with gold leaf inner lips with gray and black accents. This also picks up all of the neutral hues found in the furniture in Alli's designer dining room!
Mendocino Table Lamp
This table lamp features a carved wood base finished in a rustic black stain exposing subtle wood grain. The lamp is paired with a round hardback drum shade in a white linen fabric.
Heath Preserved Moss Tray
Bring the farmland inside! Beautiful billows of preserved moss are set into an industrial textured iron tray with an aged patina finish.
This collection of four staggered height pillar candle holders finished in a plated coffee bronze with four distressed white candles brings some shine to the dining room!
