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.
Even though most homeowners love to combine modern and contemporary styles with an Asian-inspired dining space, you need not always be bound by this norm. Get a touch creative and consider what looks best in your own house and how the style will interact with the kitchen and living room next to the dining area. Those who love a mash of industrial and Asian styles can give their lovely dining room an exposed brick wall backdrop coupled with decorative pieces from the Far East. It is pretty simple to combine a Japanese design style with minimalism, and you should not have too much trouble mixing shabby chic or even traditional dining room elements with your newfound love for Asian design.
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.
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!
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.
