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.
