If you want to give the modern dining room a more nature-centric look, then choosing the right décor is as important as the color scheme. A vintage hutch or credenza in the backdrop can give even the most contemporary of dining rooms a traditional touch. Old wooden cabinets that are repainted in white work well in shabby chic settings, while antique furniture can easily fit into dining rooms with a wide variety of themes, ranging from traditional to vintage-modern.
The brown color pallette is one that brings forward an elegance that also feels familiar and safe. The space is not intimidating, but rather seems like you’ve known it forever and when you add a dynamic rug into it, the room becomes lively! It’s easy for a white dining room to look elegant, but when it has hardwood floors it’s going to need a little help from a rug to feel softer and gentler. Elegance often means delicacy and vulnerability; allow your dining room to radiate both by picking a rug that isn’t boring, but retains a simplistic look.
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.
A cool credenza, hutch or even sideboard in wood that complements the dining table is a smart way to repeat woodsy charm in the room without going overboard. Chairs next to the dining table need not always be wooden themselves and you can easily use an eclectic mix of chairs varying from those in luxurious leather to ones with metallic frame. It is the décor around the table along with the color palette of the room that truly define its style and mood!
The napkins were purchased from Arro Home (no longer available), but check out these, these and these for a similar look. You could even paint your own by free-handing a design with fabric paint for a more affordable solution!
