Love this dining room

  • Mix light wood and pale-painted furniture with simple lines to create a contemporary feel in a dining room.
  • Cover a wall with feature wallpaper. This fun hare design is ideal for Easter and makes a focal point all year round.
  • Display seasonal finds in boxes, frames and mini-crates on the wall for an up-to-date take on the nature table.
  • Dress the dining table in strong pastels and hang pretty paper fans to make a family lunch more of an event.

 

Good Idea

Cut out leaf and flower shapes from patterned papers and stick on to pussy willow branches for a seasonal display.

 

Styling Tips

Modern chairs look great around a farmhouse-style table. A bench painted in a minty blue is the perfect finishing touch.

Hanging timber-style wallpaper diagonally creates a modern country look in a kitchen.

Primrose and aquamarine

Set bold pops of colour against cool grey wallpapers for a fun kitchen update.

 

Individual Detail

Lay a pretty personalised place setting with dip-dyed feathers, mini eggs and strips of patterned paper to create a sense of occasion.

Get Creative

Painted eggs will look great displayed in a colourful bowl on a sideboard or on the table.

 

Baking Station

For a twist on the country dresser, team a butcher’s block with a shelf and hanging rail above – ideal for storing and displaying your kitchen utensils.

How to light up a small dining space

Even if your dining zone is just a modest corner of your kitchen rather than a dedicated room, clever illumination can work wonders.
