Create a dining room to entertain

Why not get more adventurous with your space?

Many homes have a separate dining room that’s usually only used for more formal entertaining. We’ve turned ours into a cosy evening environment, perfect for relaxing around the table with good food and friends.

There’s a lot you can achieve with paint. In this case we’ve used a bold colour on the walls and door, as well as using it to create some interesting and striking art.

There are many simple ways to dress your table - natural materials can help soften the look. We’ve made use of a round outdoor paver, and a piece of schist stone as a place to set hot dishes.

Contemporary pendant lights hanging over the table, a curtain framing the window, and dark wooden flooring all help to compliment the cosy evening feel.
