Blue gastro-style dining room

Enjoy everyday family meals or weekend feasts with friends in this gastro-pub inspired kitchen. A bold denim blue shade on the walls makes the room characterful and cosy, while a range of industrial-style tables, benches and stools adds a laid-back feel. Set your table with mix-and-match blue and white tableware, chunky glasses, striped linens and cutlery stored in metal pots. Add menu-style artwork for an atmospheric finishing touch.
