We are always looking for ways that we can combine aesthetics with smart, space-savvy decor to create a more efficient and ergonomic modern home. When it comes to kitchen and dining spaces in contemporary apartments and urban residences, the line is pretty blurred with one space flowing into the next. The ever-growing popularity of open plan living has only helped in bringing the dining room and kitchen together further, and we are currently at a point where the formal, dedicated dining room is a rarity of sorts! It is in interiors like this that banquette seating is a great, space-conscious option.
You need not go all the way with Moroccan style and can add a touch of its endearing charm to your existing dining room by simply making clever, subtle changes. Moroccan lanterns are the perfect way to get this done without actually splurging on a complete dining room revamp, and these glittering lamps can instantly bring in a relaxing Mediterranean vibe without ever altering the existing style of the dining space. Shabby chic, bohemian and Spanish colonial styles combine with Moroccan touches with ease, while a room divider with an indigenous pattern and colorful tiles can give modern and contemporary dining rooms a Moroccan zest!
White is a calming force in this traditional dining area, and white seating combined with a white tablecloth creates a soothing, elegant feel. When a checkered floor is involved, a classic white-on-white approach is a stunning answer. Especially when the tablecloth is topped with a vase of vibrant flowers. A white tablecloth can also evoke a sense of glamour, especially when reflective surfaces and crystalline shine are involved. White stylishly saturates the dining room below, in addition to icy flourishes. White is the summer-perfect choice for patio tablecloths, and when a blue grid is set against a pure background, the result is as fresh as a lemon slice!

Start with linen textiles, like the Checked Linen Tablecloth featured above and below. Throw in a few interesting tableware pieces, like this Black Graffiti Effect Glass Tumbler, which creates a sophisticated yet relaxed look in the dining room.

Don‘t hesitate to mix in some wooden pieces, which will add a tropical vibe, especially if you feature greenery in your centerpiece. Home is currently offering a range of black and white pieces, such as the Tea Towel shown below. Last but not least, when your black and white tabletop is accented with fruit, there‘s an undeniable tropical feel.
