How we style a dining room is one of those decisions that not only affects our home interior, but also our quality of life. A dining room must be beautiful to look at, sure, but it must also be convenient to dine in. The most important piece of the dining room is, understandably, a dining table. There’s more to decorating a dining room than just picking out a table and setting it in the center of the room. Additions like a stylish rug can make a big difference to the overall ambiance.
Last but not least, when your black and white tabletop is accented with fruit, there’s an undeniable tropical feel. Plus, fruit makes the perfect outdoor centerpiece, as shown on CB2’s Escale Cooler Cart: Today’s final featured tabletop trend is the beauty of blue and white. It’s crisp, it’s summery, and it makes a refreshing statement. Crate & Barrel is packing their spring offerings with blue and white dinnerware for both indoor and outdoor entertaining.
Gold flatware and linen napkins put a warm spin on the table setting below, while a brass bowl replaces the glass vase for the centerpiece. The white plates keep the look light and refreshing for summer, as does the minimalist look of the place setting. Placing the napkin on the dinner plate downplays the stark white hue while punctuating the teal appetizer dishes.
Wooden dining tables were seen as a thing of the past just a few years ago. It was especially considered a big ‘no-no’ in the 90’s that saw shift towards more polished and less natural materials in home design. But the last few years and eco-conscious consumers have once again revived the classic and elegant wooden dining table.
Modern dining rooms are increasingly being relegated to a small, designated corner of the kitchen or living area. The age of the expansive and lavish dining room is definitely behind us. Today’s dining rooms seem to place efficiency ahead of flowery aesthetics and it is simplicity that trumps extravagance. The advent of the social kitchen along with a greater urge to turn the open living area into a gathering space for family and friends has seen dining space take a turn towards rustic and natural decorating choices.
