Love this Dining Room

  • Using lots of plants, both real and artifi cial, is a great way to prevent a large amount of colour from becoming too over powering.
  • Accessories with gloss finishes, such as pendant lights and vases, help bounce light around the room, making it feel more spacious.
  • Continue light-timber flooring planks up to dado-rail height, blurring the space of the floor.
  • Break up vibrant hues by introducing dark-wood furniture via a statement sideboard.
  • Show off glassware and store dining essentials in an open-front bookcase. Add wallpaper to the backs of shelves to create a display piece.

 

Styling Tip

Adding a vibrant rug that complements the shape of the table zones the eating area and reduces the amount of flooring on show, bringing the focus to the middle of the room.

Retro Print

Sixties-inspired wallpaper is a striking backdrop for stark ceramics.

 

Rustic Style

Layer tableware in contrasting textures – combine smooth ceramics with tactile placemats.

 

Sleek Scandi

Add interest to a corner with blocks of warming colours, faux plants and retro furniture in rattan.
