The most exciting development in metallic style is the current obsession with iridescence. And why wouldn’t we want a rainbow of color at the dinner table?! Below we see the Electro Barware Kit from Urban Outfitters, which includes a shaker, strainer, cocktail spoon and jigger, all with a vivid electro finish. Abstract art and hand-drawn style are all the rage in the realm of graphic design, so it‘s no surprise that the look has made its way to the dining room table. It’s as if someone took a paintbrush to these Roar & Rabbit Tea Towels from West Elm. And that‘s why we love them!
There are times when the kitchen in the backdrop or the living room in the foreground brings color to the Scandinavian dining space with banquette. All you need to do here is repeat the dominant hue of the living area or the kitchen in the dining space, but with subtlety and discretion. Pendant lighting above the corner banquette and additional chairs around the dining table can also add color to the classy Scandinavian space.
Modern Victorian dining rooms seem to take away part of the dazzle, splendor and panache that truly made these spaces timeless masterpieces. While they might not be incredibly practical, they are great for homeowners who use the formal dining space to host a few parties and dinners each festive season. Full of color, pomp and glamour, these stunning dining rooms dazzle at every turn! It is hard to really know where to start when you are describing the perfect Victorian dining room that is majestic in every sense of the word. But one element that is more or less common in all these dining rooms is the presence of a glowing, golden glint. Gold-tinted decor and warm metallic tones are an absolute must for these lavish dining rooms, and everything from vintage painting frames, drapes and the dining table to decorative molding and mirror frames play into the larger, magnificent picture. Gold as a color can accentuate the right features, anchor the dining room and also give it a glittering, glamorous sheen that makes it truly one-of-a-kind.
In fact, we can see this exact strategy below, thanks to these aqua, grey and navy Embossed Ceramic Bowls from Urban Outfitters. You’re free to purchase just one, but don’t they look fabulous in a set?! Many of today's top product photos feature pastel items set against a rich-toned backdrop, and this Set of 4 Bloom Plates from Crate & Barrel couldn‘t be more striking on the dark wooden tabletop below. Watercolor style is alive and well, and the four different color palettes presented in the design of the plates are the perfect way to add variety to your tabletop.
Carved and ornate wooden sideboards, plush and bright-colored cushions and seat covers, and walls draped in hot red, mellow orange and lovely yellow; the Moroccan dining room allows you to express yourself in an unabashed fashion! If the contemporary dining room with a muted gray backdrop always felt far too boring, then try out this outlandish style this spring and you will surely fall in love with it. Wooden dining tables with a traditional bend and matching chairs feel apt in such settings, but mid-century icons like the Tulip table also work surprisingly well.
