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.

 

Good Idea

Mix inked-effect wallpaper and dip-dyed curtains with rustic hand-blown vases for an informal result.

Styling Tips

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.

 

Beautiful Blooms

Fill bottles with loose flower arrangements for a striking centrepiece

 

Fine Dining

Pair floral patterns with more formal napkins and tableware to add depth and detail.
