Despite the formal dining room increasingly becoming a rarity in modern homes the dedicated dining room or even a considerably large dining area in the open plan living is a great place to try out Mediterranean style.
The gallery wall can bring an element of personal style to the dining room. It can also be used to introduce color and pattern in contemporary dining rooms clad largely in neutral hues. You will not have to commit to long term décor choices while introducing bold new hues in this fashion.
In the tiny apartment a flood of natural light makes a big difference and placing the dining area next to the window gives it that additional cheerful panache. It also allows you to enjoy the view outside and take in the city skyline after sunset.
These scintillating and polished chairs instantly demand your attention and end up becoming the absolute showstoppers of the dining area. Combine them with a dash of black and you are good to go!
In a square or rectangle dining room the flow of chi is best when you use a dining table with curves. The next best option is the round dining table and staying away from a dining table with sharp edges must be your last resort.
Brick and stone are a great way to create the perfect backdrop for the Mediterranean dining room with plenty of personality. Exposed brick walls also give you an opportunity to change between styles with ease and you ca go from Mediterranean to industrial rustic or even farmhouse with ease.
The current trend of adding different shades of pink – from pastels to hot pinks – is also an idea you can try out in moderation before committing to it fully. Delicate drapes in white and indoor greenery accentuate the Mediterranean allure.
But being clear about this one common feature makes it a whole lot easier while thinking about what needs to go up on the gallery wall. Consider the style of the dining room and the existing colors in the space before you make these choices.
