Dining Room / June 8, 2018 / Gaetane Noemi.
Crofter style is the inspiration for this dining room, which takes its lead from the tones and textures of the Highlands. Serve hearty dishes on a table laid with a tablecloth in earthy shades and set with artisan pottery. To play on the inside/outside theme, cosy up a bench with a sheepskin throw and blanket-stitch edged cushion, then hang a painting of atmospheric, bare tree trunks.
Choose complementary colours for a palette that’s pleasing to the eye. Vibrant orange will always pack a punch in a dining room, but introduce it through a circular motif wallpaper and the effect is all the more intense. Counterbalance with blue tableware and a single velvet statement chair in cobalt to stand out and harmonise. Enhance the relaxed retro vibe with on-trend mid-century style furniture.
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.
When space is tight, opt for extra comfort with a banquette. Blend it into the rest of the room by choosing furniture and colours that chime with the surrounding décor. Not only do banquettes offer a more casual, laid-back style of dining, but they’re also a great space-saver, requiring less room than chairs and offering valuable storage under the seats. Re-create the laid-back vibe with heaps of cushions and accessories, all tailored to fit your scheme.
