Scandinavian design is inherently minimal, contemporary and places frugality and functionality at the top of its wish list. Yet there is something undeniably cozy and inviting about Scandinavian dining rooms that allow them to be both refined and comfortable at the same time. It is precisely for this reason that the banquette seating in Scandinavian dining rooms and kitchens looks great. Bringing flexibility to the floor plan and creating a happy social zone for the entire family, the list of advantages goes on. If you are still not convinced, then the 20 inspirations below should change your mind!
How refreshing are these Easter Egg Tea Towels from West Elm, which replace traditional chick and bunny motifs with abstract eggs featuring a variety of colors and patterns?! Fabulous! Last but not least, we feature the Mooreland Dishtowel from Anthropologie, designed by Starla Michelle Halfmann. It‘s the next best thing to hanging a vibrant canvas in your kitchen.
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. Plus, the flatware's curved ends create a unique silhouette that differs from many of the more modern selections on the market today.
Start with linen textiles, like the Checked Linen Tablecloth featured above and below. Throw in a few interesting tableware pieces, like this Black Graffiti Effect Glass Tumbler, which creates a sophisticated yet relaxed look in the dining room. Patterned dishware takes on a tribal look with a series of dotted diamonds, as shown on the Two-toned Printed Porcelain Bowl. Don‘t hesitate to mix in some wooden pieces, which will add a tropical vibe, especially if you feature greenery in your centerpiece. Home is currently offering a range of black and white pieces, such as the Tea Towel shown below. Last but not least, when your black and white tabletop is accented with fruit, there‘s an undeniable tropical feel. Plus, fruit makes the perfect outdoor centerpiece, as shown on CB2‘s Escale Cooler Cart.
In fact, the collection even includes Asian-style dessert plates that are inspired by Japanese family crests, proving you can mix and match blue and white dinnerware patterns. Don‘t forget that you can accent blue and white tabletop palettes with bright hues such as red, orange, yellow and turquoise.
