If maximizing corner space is your biggest concern, then there are few solutions that work as well as banquette seating. While the focus today is on banquettes in the kitchen and dining space, they can also easily fit into Scandinavian-style bedrooms and living spaces and morph into relaxing window seats and daybeds with built-in storage. In the Scandinavian kitchen, a corner banquette can offer a wonderful breakfast zone for a couple or even maximize seating space for a large family. Instead of decorating with an indoor plant or just placing a small shelf, banquette seating allows you to efficiently utilize even the awkward corner.
An iconic image of the 60‘s and 70’s that has been burned into our brains by Hollywood and TV is the cool diner with its jukebox in the backdrop and color being used in an expansive manner pretty much all around. If you have an unused corner in your kitchen or wish to turn one in the open plan living area into a dining nook, the cheerful booth or banquette is a great option indeed. It seems authentically retro when filled with multi-colored accessories, bright and beautiful seating and a smart dining table. This is a wonderful solution for the small dining space in studio apartments as well!
Vivacious color, gorgeous patterns that range from geometric to floral, and of course, spaces that are full of personality and effervescence, retro is a style that is unmistakable and at times over the top.

But infusing some of this lively brilliance into your home decor can be hard, especially for a generation that was taught the simplicity of the 90’s and its functional design principles.
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!
