If you're lucky enough to have the space for a formal dining area then we'll all just be patiently waiting for our dinner party invite. Really though, if you have the space, large or small, it's great to put the effort into making your dining area memorable because let's face it, it's not common these days that we have the time to stop and enjoy a meal together.

This dining space and style description was created by the talented and popular Emily Henderson Design team for the also popular and always stylish blogger, Nicolette Mason. This space is full of great contrast: black and white, soft and edgy, vintage and contemporary, abstract art and sweet illustrations. It all works together to create a great look that would make anyone want to RSVP "yes" to this dinner party.
