Dine in style - Colourful Combinations
The dining room calls for a stimulating colour scheme. This is the room where members of the household meet daily, to catch up and exchange their news; a place for everyone to connect. It is also where guests need to feel comfortable when we entertain them. Here are our design tips for using this seasons coolest colours in dining spaces and a few furniture pieces taken from the Harley & Lola collection to inspire you to get the look.
We all know how colour can affect mood, with its power to make you feel uplifted or drained. Colour is the most important consideration when trying to create an atmosphere. This season's trend for dining room colour schemes is combining colours to create a calm, yet uplifting and fresh, environment. Think coloured walls, such as dark blue, dark green or teal, combined with more neutral shades of furniture, such as the Tribeca Sideboard (1), and bright accessories. Grey fabric dining chairs such as the Arlon Dining Chair (2) look stunning against the backdrop of navy blue or green wallpaper.
Finishing the room with the Spectrum Blue and Grey Rug (3) and other colourful touches, such as a teal lampshade or our Oval Aqua Bowl (4) , gives a modern, uplifting feel.
If you want a more neutral, textured feel, our Sawn Wood Slates Wallpaper (5) perfectly complements green or teal chairs and, if you are feeling brave, a boldly coloured tablecloth.
If you are looking for a cooler, fresher, seaside look, teal complements grey, while remaining in the same tonal range. Using teal wallpaper to create a backdrop allows you to tie in items such as artwork, lampshades and nautical accessories to provide a fresh seaside feel.
