The first few months of 2017 have seen wood emerge as the big winner when it comes to home design and decorating. Inclination of homeowners and designers towards materials that are far more natural and an ambiance that is relaxing and warm has meant that wood has topped the trends chart in the past few months. From fabulous wooden siding, to wooden ceilings and slats that combine privacy with insulation, wood is quickly becoming the go to material in the contemporary interior. So, why not jump in on this natural bandwagon by bringing wood into your dining room?
The “new” trends featured in today’s post are more like new interpretations of classic motifs…which makes them timeless! After all, does tropical style really ever go out of style? And who can beat the breezy look of black and white when it’s given an earthy twist? Throw in some crisp blue and white, and you have a recipe for spring style that can last all the way through the summer.
From modern farmhouse dining spaces to ones with understated rustic charm and a dash of wooden warmth, homeowners no longer want just a polished, contemporary dining area. It is all about giving the room a distinct character even while allowing it to blend in with the larger theme of the open plan living. With that in mind, here are 15 inspirations that bring home cozy rustic effervescence even while staying true to modern functionality. Some more modern than others, there is something here for everyone!
If there is one style that epitomizes a blend of modernity and inimitable rustic elements along with ageless beauty of wood, then it is modern farmhouse. As the name suggests, you can blend in modern and farmhouse style design elements in here while varying the proportions of each to get a desired look of your choice. If you happen to be someone who loves the classic, farmhouse vibe more, then load up on additions like the wooden hutches, a heavy wooden dining table with weathered finish, chairs clad in plaid and a beautiful chandelier to give the dining room that timeless appeal.
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.
