Laurent. Dining room. November 09th , 2017.
Lighting is a key element too, so make the most of natural light where you can, framing a window or French doors with floor length curtains, which can also add a warming feel in the colder months. A decorative chandelier or statement pendant lights directly above the table create a wonderful focal point, but add a selection of candles and lamps to create a relaxing ambience for evening entertaining.
Dark wood and neutrals, neutral colours and a cleverly placed mirrored wall keep this room feeling light and spacious against dark mahogany antique furniture. Contemporary artwork complements the colour scheme and keeps the look fresh and up-to-date.
Regardless of whether you live in a period or contemporary home, you can’t go wrong with classic design and in a dining room this can be enhanced with dramatic colour schemes, opulent textiles and elegant tableware. A statement table and chairs is the obvious place to start, so whether you choose a striking dark wood antique, a traditional country farmhouse feel or a pretty Scandi-inspired design, you can then build your chosen classic dining room scheme around it.
Head for red, nothing quite gets the attention like bright red – use it to accentuate an otherwise neutral dining space. Rather than drown a room with saturated colour, balance it throughout with an equal measure of white against a backdrop that’s also white. Start the style statement with an impressive low-slung light – this one conjures up a fiesta spirit with its pretty paper garlands. Echo the contemporary look with a mix of strong patterns on loose chair covers and a Nordic-style felt rug.
