Deep blue dining room with benches and floral blinds

  • Think ‘no frills’ for furniture and flooring to keep the room calm, but stop it looking clinical with a warm, matt blue finish on the walls and a modern botanical-print blind. Stick to oak, black and white finishes for your key pieces to give a foundation for adding colour and detail. An abstract rug zones a dining area – and hides crumbs until you get time to vacuum!
