The dining room can and should be the heart of any home. Your healthy, delicious meals are meant to be shared with loved ones in a space that is conducive to love, laughter and, of course, eating. If you feel that your current space is looking a little lackluster, we’ve rounded up some serious color inspo for your dining room. These unique spaces give some fun ideas on how to freshen up your dining room in ways you might not have expected.

1. Neon Chairs: This dining room setup is beyond unique. Wicker chairs in bright hues = a fun space you’ll want to entertain in. Plus we love that quirky and fruity pendant lamp. (via Little Red Dot Folks)

2. Pop Art: A dining room is the best place in the house to showcase pop art. This wild + whimsical piece adds visual interest to an otherwise plain room. You can also throw in an extra pop of color with fun pendant lights if you’re feeling extra bold. (via Design Sponge)

3. Lilly Pulizter-Inspired: If you’re a fan of all-things Lilly, you’re going to be in LOVE with this dining room. Bold prints and pastel hues make this stunner perfect for gathering the family together for a delicious summer meal. (via The Design Files)

4. Yellow Chairs: Make a big, bold statement like interior designer Orlando Soria by painting or purchasing bright yellow dining room chairs. Pair with some awesome art, cute trinkets and a graphic paint job to create a space worth spending time in. (via Homepolish)

5. Multi-Colored Walls: Bold wallpaper gives this space a much-needed boost of color and pattern. Pair it with a simple mid-century modern dining room table and you’ve got one amazing room. (via Desire to Inspire)

6. Turquoise Tables: Turquoise looks fresh in this dining room setup. The mismatched chairs and simple color palette allow this table to stand out and be the star of the show. (via Bright Bazaar)

7. Mixed Chairs: We love that this dining nook is a conundrum: It’s both colorful and muted. The mix of chairs and beautiful art makes this space welcoming. (via The Design Files)

8. Lavender: Lavender isn’t a typical choice for chic walls, but with this technique, it works! Painting only half the wall in this pretty purple is playful, but not stuffy. And that abstract artwork? Ah-ma-zing. (via Inside Out)

9. Coral and Pink: Feeling inspired by pinks and corals? As demonstrated above, they are perfect for any dining room. They create an inviting space that makes breakfast special and dinners much more luxurious. (via Kim Timmeran)

10. Layers of Turquoise and Blue: A European escape within your own home? Why yes, you can have it all. Take a cue from this luxurious farmhouse-style dining space with bright turquoise and vibrant blues. (via My Domaine)

11. Saffron and Hot Pink: This dining room is beyond glamorous. The combo of pink + orange is insanely beautiful, plus the fun tiles keep it fresh. (via Bolig)

12. Kelly Green Table: You’ll be green with envy when you take a peek at this dining room. The ultra-chic dining bench in kelly green is a serious showstopper. You could also tone it down in your abode with warmer walls and cozy textures. (via Remodelista)

13. Colorful Art: If you are afraid to commit to a wild wall color or are a renter and can’t paint your walls whatever color you want, a big piece of art can set the tone with less fuss. We love the idea of showcasing a fun piece in a neutral room. (via In/Out).

14. Citrus and Pink: Choose citrus and pink hues to create a playful space where your family will be eager to gather around the table for a meal. If yellow walls and a hot pink table are a little too extreme for you, you can always mix these hues on an amazing tablecloth or printed chairs. (via Marie Claire Maison)

15. Pumped Up Pastels: This look is not for the faint of heart. Here, pinks, purples and greens come together at the same table for a whimsical dining room design. (via Mor til Mernee)
