Modern kitchen with children's dining area

Modern kitchen with children’s dining area

Create a separate dining area in your kitchen for the small people in your life to enjoy. This one benefits from an ideal position next to the patio doors, which open directly out onto the garden, extending the ‘play area’. Meanwhile, the adults can easily keep a watchful eye. A rug helps to zone the space and modern chairs liven things up to the point that this look could be adopted for any age group – the furniture would just need to be a bit bigger!

Pick a few colours to continue throughout the house to pull the decor together. This kitchen has accents of dark blue, and antique brass is a recurring theme. The kitchen island’s deep tones, add a nice contrast in the light kitchen, and match touches in the blinds and curtains. If you’re using natural marble flooring, look at the tones first, and incorporate them into your room’s colour palette.

In this impressive open-plan space a lovely pine cone and orange fir garland adds a splash of colour and a hit of fragrance, while a second swag has been used to decorate the seating area beyond.
