With the dinner party season just around the corner, are you feeling the pressure of entertaining in a room which has been forgotten and unloved for the past ten months? Fear not, we’ve pulled together some of our favourite dining rooms – styled by you – to help get you inspired for the season ahead.
Contrast with Textures
A lot of people are hesitant to mix and match texture, but it’s key to creating visual interest. We tend to gravitate towards spaces that give our eyes multiple elements to examine, which is what @171_hendy_house have done so beautifully. The mix of copper in the triple pendant, the industrial inspired Tosca Wall Clock, and the Rustic Oak of the Hercules Dining Table, layered with the jute placemats, complete this room.
We love how @lovestartsathome has created a cosy and inviting dining area which kicks a super-stylish punch in their open plan kitchen diner. Texture is everything. Adding a huggable chunky blanket to our Arched Back Dining Chairs brings the contrast of warmth and opulence into this inspiring space.
Bring the Outside in
As one of the hottest trends of AW18 is all about embracing natural wood, earthenware and textural weave, @kandyhomessweethome has got the trend down to a tee in their dining room. The exotic grain patterns of solid mango wood are accentuated by the minimalist design of the Mantis dining table teamed with our High Back Grass Chair.
Accessorize for the Season
Embrace the enchanting nooks of your dresser and don’t let it become a dumping ground. Showcase your favourite photos and treasured possessions, and why not even coordinate them to the seasons colours just like @32.redwood with their Kemble Dresser.
Pick a colour and accessorize – it’s that simple. @myarundelstory has taken inspiration from the rich light grey paint of the St Ives range, using a table runner to coordinate their chosen theme. Finished off with touches of greenery on the sideboard and table instantly brings life to the room.
The Dark Side
When done right, dark walls can make a room look energising and full of life. @sandalwoodhome have created the perfect contrast with the dark wall paneling bringing depth and the white upper walls and accessories offering balance. The wood of our Dorset Dining table complements the look flawlessly – perfect for when you’re expecting extra guests too, as it extends!
Set the Scene
A truly spectacular meal – whatever the occasion – requires a beautiful table. You’ve chosen your base, like our Natural Oak Alto Dining Set, but what do you do next? Take some tips from @rebeccafullertoninterior‘s dining set up, teaming sophisticated tableware with a delicate centrepiece, creates a wonderfully welcoming setting.
