The dedicated dining room might be fading away ever so slowly in favor of that open plan dining area that easily and effortlessly blends in with the living space and kitchen, but there are some design elements that remain forever young. Even though contemporary designers are busy designing modular shelves that unite the living space, kitchen and dining area into one flowing family zone, the allure of a classic hutch or china cabinet still remains as strong as ever. For some a throwback to simpler times and for others a practical and essential piece of furniture, the dining room hutch is hard to ignore!
We’re getting closer to spring, folks! Are you ready to freshen up your interior? Start with some new tableware purchases that showcase the latest design trends, from pastels and metallics to hand-drawn style. Today we round up some of our favorite kitchen and dining finds, many of them new arrivals from the spring collections. Enjoy browsing as you dream of warmer days and vibrant tabletop style!
It is walls that bring much of the color to the Victorian dining room, and if red and gold do not seem appealing enough (or far too audacious), then maybe it is time you toned down the 'richness' just a bit and turned to blue. Even the brightest shade of blue creates a more relaxing dining room when compared to red, and the walls can still seem equally engaging with stylish molding, vintage wall art, rare oil paintings and even custom wallcoverings ushering in all the contrast you need.
It is important to settle on the exact appearance you are looking for in the dining room before you actually start to shop for your Asian-style dining room. As we alluded to earlier, ‘Asian style’ is a pretty broad spectrum of styles, and you need a more focused approach when you are redecorating your existing dining space. If you love a vivacious and lavish setting, then think of color schemes like gold and black, or even black and red. Black is the color that brings dramatic panache to the dining room, while shades like gold, purple and red offer richness associated with royalty in ancient Chinese culture.
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.
