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.
