There’s nothing more inviting than a beautifully set dining room table that’s just waiting for a good time to be had around it. No matter if people are about to gather at it, keeping your dining table styled and ready to go is another way to add a level of cosiness to your home this winter. Simply add a vase, candle or foliage arrangement – or why not all three! But if you’re curating each place setting, start by thinking of an accent colour, then build your plates, placemats, cutlery and stemware around it. When it comes to success, don’t go overboard with props – after all, the food needs to go somewhere!
LOOK 1 : Industrial chic
Strong, classic and bold, a little industrial inspiration is perfect for a dining room with impact. Clean lines and smooth textures combined with faux fur and linen soften the look and add interest, as well as make the room feel warm and appealing.
Tableware in a gorgeous glazed blue ceramic elevates the look – pair with a matching cushion, or complement with steel grey. A fur rug doubles as a cushioning layer, while an abstract spherical vase with a simple leaf arrangement provides the final touch.
