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.
Don’t hesitate to mix in some wooden pieces, which will add a tropical vibe, especially if you feature greenery in your centerpiece. H&M Home is currently offering a range of black and white pieces, such as the Tea Towel shown below: Next we see more proof that black and white + wood = a match made in heaven! Especially when accented with these Metal Salad Servers from H&M Home:
Ah, tropical style! You re-emerged several years ago, and we’re delighted that you’re still going strong. This season it’s all about layering lush shades of green, and throwing in textiles that feature tropical plants. With the help of tabletop treasures from CB2, beachy style can be yours! Above and below we see the Riviera Table Runner, along with Crisp Dinnerware in blue-green, seafoam and chartreuse. Don’t be afraid to combine a range of green tones, which will add depth (and even a sense of tropical decadence).
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!
Capitalize on the brown color palette to truly bring an organic, natural feel into the room. The rug under the dining table should be the darkest element in the room. It will instantly draw attention to itself and the dining table, as it should! For a lighter and brighter rustic dining room pick a rug that feels fresh and reminds you of a sunny summer day. A shade of yellow will certainly fit that description and be a great addition to a dining room full of dark wooden elements!
