Laurent. Dining room. September 15th , 2017.
The dining room should no longer be a room only used for high days and holidays. Make your dining room more relevant with multitasking ideas. The modern dining room has evolved beyond its traditional purpose into a multitasking space that should work hard. No longer kept as a dusty little-used room for formal eating, the dining room in many houses needs to be reconsidered and remodelled to fit into modern life.
Don’t shy away from dark colours or bold patterned wallpaper in a dining room as it gives you a great opportunity to be a little braver and create a dramatic backdrop that is an ideal talking point. Opulent fabrics, such as silk and velvet, on curtains and upholstery adds a decadent feel to any dining occasion and can be updated seasonally to change the mood of the room in an instant.
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.
Bearing in mind your dining room is going to be primarily used for entertaining, it should be one of the most inviting areas of the home. All it takes are a few little tweaks to get your dining room up to scratch, whether it’s freshening it up with new upholstery or injecting some personality with a feature wall of framed photographs or prints.
