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!
A contrasting approach is to add a smart navy blue or bright red hutch to a dining room that is draped in neutral hues. Since most dining room hutches can also be easily used in the kitchen or even in a shabby chic living room, you can always move it out when you want to alter the ambiance of the room. Distressed decor is making a huge comeback in 2016, with styles such as Bohemian and shabby chic allowing homeowners to embrace upcycled and rejuvenated furniture pieces. A lovely hutch with a distressed finish is a classic that never fails, and if you are willing to go down the route of a whitewashed hutch, then you can integrate it into even a contemporary and minimal dining room as well. If you cannot find a truly distressed china hutch, then give the modern piece that you own a custom distressed finish.
The new trends featured in today‘s post are more like new interpretations of classic motifs…which makes them timeless! After all, does tropical style really ever go out of style? And who can beat the breezy look of black and white when it‘s given an earthy twist? Throw in some crisp blue and white, and you have a recipe for spring style that can last all the way through the summer. 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!
