A good place to start out with retro design and decorating is the modern dining room. The idea of a ‘retro diner' is something that puts a smile on the face of almost everyone, even if you were born well after the glory days of the 60's and 70‘s. Retro dining rooms coupled with modern touches can offer a delightful escape from the mundane, and today we focus on how you can do this without completely committing to the style at all times.
Geo patterns find their roots in midcentury design, and while the 60's might have seen a shift to less `clean` and more vibrant flowery patterns, a blend of both eras can work beautifully. Geo patterns in the dining room can be brought in by much more than just the wallpaper or drapes, as chairs covered in bright fabric with a striking pattern or even a dining table with a checkered top can do the trick.
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.
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.
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.
