  • Smart dining room with stripped floor and feature wallpaper

    Smart dining room with stripped floor and feature wallpaper

    A stripped floor is a great asset in a dining space. A 1930s-style tiled fireplace is the centrepiece of the room thanks to the white painted chimney breast that stands out against two wallpapered alcoves. Copper-look designer-style chairs add a burnished touch that is perfectly in keeping with the oranges of the wallpaper and tiles.

  • Mint green dining room with mid-century style furniture and pendant light

    Mint green dining room with mid-century style furniture and pendant light

    Contrast different prints with ease by sticking to just one or two colours in the same tone – here, a retro wallpaper, ethnic-inspired blind and stripy rug work in harmony for a modern but relaxed result. Pale mint hues can appear washed out, so give them structure with charcoal upholstery and dark wood furniture.

    Don’t be deterred by the masculine connotations of industrial style. Transform your room into a pared-back paradise with an array of design features that wouldn’t look out of place in urban restaurant or bar. Here stone flooring adds a rustic touch, while the reclaimed dining table is made from a New Zealand wool press. A vibrant neon sign, set against the wall, spells out a wonderful word, while also drawing attention to the decorative plate display on the adjacent wall.
