Rustic dining rooms are perhaps those who are in need of a rug the most. The natural appeal of a dark, antique decor is very homey and nostalgic, cozy and familiar. Adding a rug into the mix will only enhance this feeling and truly squeeze the best attributes out of the room. 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.
Few colors seem as refreshing and visually engaging as yellow when used in neutral contemporary spaces. Just bring a lone yellow chair to the dining room filled with white, black, gray or beige and you will instantly see the energy levels in the room shoot up. Yellow has this invigorating effect in any room it adorns and can be both polished and ravishing at the same time. While using yellow accents, chairs and lighting fixtures in the dining room is not all that uncommon, having a dining table with yellow tabletop is indeed a rarity. Moving away from a completely neutral color scheme in the dining room does not necessarily mean adding bright primary colors to the mix. Try out trendy metallics instead, which bring both visual and textural contrast to the dining space. Additions like the copper pendants from Tom Dixon also serve as timeless pieces that will serve you well for years to come. A gorgeous piece of wall art in the backdrop, a bright rug that delineates the dining area or even just a few comfy chairs in brown can do the trick.
Despite the trend of integrated unassuming dining spaces with the social kitchen, a completely different end of the spectrum has seen the revival of the luxurious, classic dining room. While they might seem a touch too ornate and ‘over-the-top’ for some, others might love the majestic and timeless backdrop they present for a perfect and memorable family dinner. Elegant, affluent and at times modern, here is a look at 15 latest dining rooms laced with brilliant craftsmanship and an air of indulgence. There is something inherently timeless and beautiful about luxury Italian décor that leaves us all mesmerized. When it comes to classic, luxurious dining rooms, this becomes even more evident with the likes of Roberto Cavalli and Medea combining a hint of modernity with timeless aesthetics and golden glint. Apart from the beautiful fretwork, the golden embellishment and the silvery overtones, colors such as deep fuchsia, gentle purple and scarlet red add to the grandiose of these remarkable dining spaces. If you have both the space and the budget to spare, then getting one seems like an absolute no-brainer.
Consider including a favor at each place setting. Small white pumpkins make a lovely addition to the Thanksgiving table. Linen napkins also work well with a grey and neutral palette. For a fun seasonal idea, place a pumpkin on top of each napkin, as shown below. Wash off each pumpkin before adding it to the table (to ensure that the napkins remain clean). If you want to send guests home with a token of thanks that can be enjoyed year-round, try a small potted succulent in a geo planter, as shown below. Finally, golden pears add the picture-perfect dash of fall style. Below we see how the warm golden tone of the produce pops against the cool grey of the runner. Now that you have the ingredients for your centerpiece, let’s put it all together. Start by making an arrangement of pumpkins and pears in the center of the table. As you can see below, a variety of pumpkin sizes will keep it interesting. Now tuck bunches of seeded eucalyptus under the produce, making sure the greenery is prominent at each end of the centerpiece. You can also place a sprig or two near the middle of the arrangement to tie it all together.
