With the constant reminder that the holidays are drawing nearer, we try to forget the pressure of gift-buying and meal-making in efforts to focus on what really matters at this time: bringing the family together. Truth be told, nothing beats the excitement of humiliating family anecdotes around a nice, warm meal. And there's no better way to solicit a range of expressions than by having the ultimate welcoming dinner space! We've compiled some of our favorite dining areas to inspire your next get together.

Weaving in farmhouse-style decor presents simplicity grouped with that homey feel we so strongly yearn for around the holidays. Pairing the look with an elegant, yet subtle, overhead chandelier gives the room a proper touch of modernity without overshadowing the gentle nature of the space. Simply by looking at this room, you know the homemade meals prepared the next room over will be delicious!

Another coastal home with a stunning view to the ocean. We can’t help it! These are the homes we just can’t get enough of. With a view like this, you can expect to be hosting every year. On the bright side, you get to keep all of the tasty leftovers!

At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter where you are, but who you are with. These dining areas would be nothing without a family to fill the seats. The best thing about these rooms is that they encourage your family to join together and share in truly unforgettable (and somewhat chaotic) moments.

So sit back, relax, and enjoy the unrivaled adventure of a family reunion!
