Love this dining room
- This scheme may appear pared back and nonchalant, but needs plenty of accessories and details to ensure that it feels lived-in rather than stark.
- Flexible furniture is good for family and friends; a bench and an extendable dining table provides plenty of seating.
- Layer varying shades of blue, from deepest indigo to bright ultramarine, for a powerful decorating scheme.
- Add plenty of crisp white to ensure your space stays inviting and uplifting.
Mix inked-effect wallpaper and dip-dyed curtains with rustic hand-blown vases for an informal result.
Smarten this carefree look with a classy damask tablecloth and crockery for when you need to create a sense of occasion.
Evoke a farmhouse feel with traditional Cornishware-style blue-and-white thick stripes.
Fill bottles with loose flower arrangements for a striking centrepiece
Pair floral patterns with more formal napkins and tableware to add depth and detail.
