Since spring is all about experimenting with color possibilities, why not jump on the metallic train and revel in the latest flatware designs? Because these days, it's about much more than silver! This Copper Flatware from West Elm is gorgeous, yet its stainless steel core also makes it hardy. Copper tones mix well with soft hues, such as pastel pink. Plus, they’re a breath of fresh air at the dinner table. Add interest with this Copper Top Flatware from Anthropologie, which combines copper and white for a two-toned effect.

Often the largest and most obvious decor addition to the dining room, the china hutch can go on to define the style, mood and the ambiance of the dining room with ease. Even though most of us tend to gravitate towards the antique, traditional and vintage pieces, these utilitarian delights find their way into even the most contemporary of dining areas. Versatile, striking and practical, here is a look at 30 of the very best around.
We start off with Asian-style dining rooms that are bit different from the usual perception of these spaces. Most homeowners associate a relaxing, serene Japanese style with all ‘Asian spaces‘, and while we will get to those in a bit, exquisite and opulent Asian-inspired dining rooms are equally amazing. These colorful and smart spaces borrow extensively from Chinese traditions and design elements, and there is no shortage of hues like glittering gold, vivacious red and bold black here. Fabulous lighting and ornate ceilings add to this look, while original wall art with Chinese flavor can take it to a completely different level!
Do not fret about the style of your dining room too much when you are shopping for or custom ordering a live-edge table. While simple things like choosing a table with a light, even grain of wood for modern interiors while opting for tables crafted from darker tones of wood for rustic and Mediterranean rooms helps, it is not an absolute must. Try to find balance in the rest of the room by opting for chairs, a credenza or even the rug and pendant fixture that show the live-edge table in the best light. You will be surprised at how well these tables blend in with styles ranging from industrial, shabby chic and Bohemian to minimal and transitional!
Red coupled with black is a timeless showstopper that works even in these affluent dining rooms, but feel free to experiment with different shades of red ranging from seductive scarlet to fascinating fuchsia to find the ideal hue for your dream dining room. Once again, it is important to remember that this not just about walls alone, and decor, accessories and drapes in red come together to create a richer and more appealing setting.
