Adding Black to the Mix 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.
The first few months of 2017 have seen wood emerge as the big winner when it comes to home design and decorating. Inclination of homeowners and designers towards materials that are far more natural and an ambiance that is relaxing and warm has meant that wood has topped the trends chart in the past few months. From fabulous wooden siding, to wooden ceilings and slats that combine privacy with insulation, wood is quickly becoming the go to material in the contemporary interior. So, why not jump in on this natural bandwagon by bringing wood into your dining room?
