Modern Bistro Chic Dining Room

We love the look of the modern french bistro. Though is a timeless look for any kitchen, today’s bistro-inspired designs are perfect for modern living. Rustic wood, casual lighting and metal chairs create a family-friendly look that works for a kitchen or dining room. A black and white palette is typically used but whites with pastels are also common. It could also be described as modern country or schoolhouse chic.

 

These three kitchens are some great examples of how to successfully recreate this look at home. Below we share our top picks for creating a modern bistro chic dining room.
