Balance a palette of leafy colours with delicate floral designs and vintage butterfly prints
Love this dining room
- Contemporary and traditional elements work in perfect harmony in this space. Try combining a rustic table with Scandi-style chairs.
- Define your dining area with a statement rug. A grass-green colour complements the nature-inspired look.
- Introduce prints featuring flora and fauna with curtains and cushion covers – designs on fabric soften the impact.
- Don’t be afraid of mixing lots of green shades – just use plenty of foliage to tie the look together.
A sculptural chandelier and baroque-style mirror add a beautifully decorative touch to a dining room.
Just like yellow, citrus greens work best in sunny locations. In darker rooms, stick to serene shades of olive or pistachio, which will suit a wide range of locations.
Design an elegant display by combining a statement vase, a botanical print and a modern candlestick. Position an empty picture frame behind them for an arty effect.
Re-create a Victorian orangery with an arrangement of spring blooms inside an antiquestyle birdcage.
Style a wooden dining table with fi ne china, a lace runner and a few individual stems in a bottle.
