Dining Room / July 1, 2018 / Francis Raoul.
This dining space is not much wider than its window, but it has been maximised with the addition of built-in bench seating. Include storage under benches so you are not wasting any space. Add seat pads and scatter cushions in a mix of coloured fabrics. Squeeze the largest table possible between the two benches and make the space special by hanging an oversized pendant light above. A lovely, cosy arrangement.
Small doesn’t have to mean plain. Where space isn’t the wow factor, draw the attention with colour and pattern. One side of this small dining room has been given over to vibrant paint and pattern. A feature wallpaper takes centre stage, flanked by fuchsia pink alcoves in a wonderfully lively decorating scheme. Bench seating is a wise choice for this small space, while pendant lamps add a little mood lighting come night-time.
Set the scene for a casual dinner with a fun patchwork tablecloth in a design of checks, plains and stripes; you can recycle tea towels instead of using fabric to get the same effect. This dining room scheme of blues and reds continues with a retro style wallpaper, painted chairs and a patchwork cushion.
Mix it up style-wise for an eclectic country dining theme. Frame French windows with floor-length curtains in a cute teacup design then pick out a graphic colour-block rug in bold shades to tone with painted chairs and liven up the floor. To dress the table, throw on a chicken-themed tablecloth and offset with a selection of bright artisan ceramics in fresh blues and greens.
