Modern dining rooms are increasingly being relegated to a small, designated corner of the kitchen or living area. The age of the expansive and lavish dining room is definitely behind us. Today's dining rooms seem to place efficiency ahead of flowery aesthetics and it is simplicity that trumps extravagance. The advent of the social kitchen along with a greater urge to turn the open living area into a gathering space for family and friends has seen dining space take a turn towards rustic and natural decorating choices.
For many of us, embracing the darker hue of a color always feels a touch more risky than its lighter counterpart. It can be tricky indeed and a dark green backdrop done wrong can quickly give the dining room a dull and boring appeal. But get it spot on and you have a showstopper that instantly lifts spirits! A dark green accent wall is the best option in contemporary dining areas set in an open plan living. This delineates space with ease and gives the dining room an identity of its own.
Kitchen is often the chosen spot for the breakfast nook and it makes perfect sense most of the time. But, with the tiny breakfast nook for two, you can move away from this conventional idea and bring it into the living area, a larger dining space next to the kitchen, the beautiful master bedroom or even the warmly lit sunroom. You obviously need very little space here and often, tables mounted at the edge of the kitchen island or simply extend the window ledge outwards make it even more space-savvy.
If there is one style that epitomizes a blend of modernity and inimitable rustic elements along with ageless beauty of wood, then it is modern farmhouse. As the name suggests, you can blend in modern and farmhouse style design elements in here while varying the proportions of each to get a desired look of your choice. If you happen to be someone who loves the classic, farmhouse vibe more, then load up on additions like the wooden hutches, a heavy wooden dining table with weathered finish, chairs clad in plaid and a beautiful chandelier to give the dining room that timeless appeal.
Beyond colors like blue, yellow and red, you can also work with shades of gray, white and brown in the Mediterranean dining room with contemporary elements. The current trend of adding different shades of pink – from pastels to hot pinks – is also an idea you can try out in moderation before committing to it fully. Delicate drapes in white and indoor greenery accentuate the Mediterranean allure.
