Whether you have an open plan dining space or a dedicated dining room, it’s important to create a mood that suits both casual mid-week mealtimes and more formal dinners with friends. A room decorated in soft, chalky shades of green like eu de nil, seafoam, pistachio and verdigris can help you create a look that’s classic, calm and comfortable – yet always stylish. These gentle colours have a timeless quality that will put guests at ease immediately, and provide a great neutral background so you can let your personal decorating style shine through.
For a harmonious look, you could paint your cupboards or shelving in the same or a similar shade of green as your walls or create a nostalgic feel with vintage-style accessories, like enamel tableware, coloured glassware and white furniture with distressed finishes. Top the table with a bunch of fresh flowers, or instead use classic floral fabric or tableware to create a stylish setting.
