If you want to give the modern dining room a more nature-centric look, then choosing the right décor is as important as the color scheme. A vintage hutch or credenza in the backdrop can give even the most contemporary of dining rooms a traditional touch. Old wooden cabinets that are repainted in white work well in shabby chic settings, while antique furniture can easily fit into dining rooms with a wide variety of themes, ranging from traditional to vintage-modern.
A great way to bring the modern dining room in neutral hues to life, even while using a wooden dining table, is to turn to black. Black anchors these breezy dining rooms, accentuates the key features of the dining space and also allows the dining table to shine through. This can be done using pendant lights, chairs around the wooden table or a classy, dark tabletop itself. Using darker tones of wood for the dining table and chairs next to it also adds to its dramatic aura and turns the table into the focal point of the room.
Our dinner plates are a discontinued pattern from Crate & Barrel (learn more about the Claire pattern here). The teal appetizer plates come from CB2 and are a gloriously affordable $1.99 apiece! We love the idea of topping each plate with a special bite, such as round crackers covered in goat cheese and pink peppercorn. Our greenery was picked up at the local market, labeled “California filler” and sold for $3 a bunch!
