Love this dining room

  • Bold blue gives this room wow factor. To avoid a Union Jack effect, use accents of red in moderation.
  • Invest in a classic dresser – it will last a lifetime and give the room a modern edge when combined with industrial-style chairs and pendant lights.
  • Add a nod to nautical with rope offcuts, anchor motifs and a few stripes.
  • Frosted window film provides privacy as well as an extra area for family mottos or phrases.

 

Styling Tips

Create a display of your favourite and practical coastal-themed items on a classic dresser; move or replace pieces regularly to keep the look fresh

Introduce pattern by making blinds in a coastal fabric, but use a plain contrasting fabric on the reverse to stop the design from dominating the room. Then roll up with twine.

 

Good Idea

Look out for pretty tins when food shopping – they’re ideal for holding a cheerful bunch of sunflowers.

Marine blue and bold red

To finish your scheme, combine these nautical shades with polished metal.

 

Get Crafty

Roll-up blinds are quick and easy to make and will give your dining room an informal, laid-back feel.

 

Clever Setting

Make your dining table look extra-special by coiling lengths of rope as placemats and coasters, and using small offcuts to tie cutlery.
