Quietly stunning: Dining rooms with glowing repose

I've been having a huge dining room crush lately, and I think it's because I don't have one, and it's not likely that our first home will have one either. These dining rooms also reflect the style I've been loving lately - not too shabby, not too chic, but a lovely mix of clean, sensible design with a touch or two of glamor.
This dining room is quiet and peaceful, but the pink sofa adds a little wink.

A sunny spot to eat breakfast is the best!

I want those chairs so bad!!! Anyone know of something similar thats affordable?

The white "leather" bench is actually faux leather vinyl - great for kids (or me!).  This owner recommends Grain de Cuir by Nobillis.

Really enjoy this site - great for ideas. These dining rooms are quite lovely - and very spacious. However, they are not for me.
Doesn't anyone decorate their kitchen / dining areas with color anymore? I am tired of only seeing white, taupe and grey rooms - life is fully of color - why not use it? Would really like to see some warmer tones - i.e southwest styles please.

@G Peabody - Good point! I think that for some people, committing to a strong color is scary, and for me personally, I feel more relaxed in neutral spaces. I definitely think some spaces call for color though! I'll try to keep an eye out for homes that utilize warmer tones. Thanks for your comment!
