A reclaimed wood accent wall with a distressed finish is a cool way to give the dining space that shabby chic vibe without moving away from the modern color palette.

If this little move away from the beaten path does not interest you, then you might want to consider a credenza or buffet covered in reclaimed wood to give the dining space a cozy, inviting aura.
