Geo patterns find their roots in midcentury design, and while the 60's might have seen a shift to less `clean` and more vibrant flowery patterns, a blend of both eras can work beautifully. Geo patterns in the dining room can be brought in by much more than just the wallpaper or drapes, as chairs covered in bright fabric with a striking pattern or even a dining table with a checkered top can do the trick.
In fact, we can see this exact strategy below, thanks to these aqua, grey and navy Embossed Ceramic Bowls from Urban Outfitters. You’re free to purchase just one, but don’t they look fabulous in a set?! Many of today's top product photos feature pastel items set against a rich-toned backdrop, and this Set of 4 Bloom Plates from Crate & Barrel couldn‘t be more striking on the dark wooden tabletop below. Watercolor style is alive and well, and the four different color palettes presented in the design of the plates are the perfect way to add variety to your tabletop.
In fact, the collection even includes Asian-style dessert plates that are inspired by Japanese family crests, proving you can mix and match blue and white dinnerware patterns. Don‘t forget that you can accent blue and white tabletop palettes with bright hues such as red, orange, yellow and turquoise.
If there is one style that is a wonderful amalgamation of varied cultures, traditions, nuances and diverse backdrops, then it is surely Moroccan. A constant influx of ever-changing Asian, European, Middle Eastern and, of course, African influences has turned Morocco into a cultural crucible of sorts where all of these drastically different elements intermingle and coexist in a seamless fashion. Carrying with it an air of exotic opulence, timeless beauty and the magic of the Saharan landscape, this is a decorating style that is perfect for the unique and exquisite dining room.
The idea of adding retro punch to your existing dining room is more about just changing a few elements within the space than a complete switch of styles. This means you can combine almost any other design style, including farmhouse, rustic, industrial or modern, with retro decor elements to get the best of both worlds. This allows you to retain a certain sense of control over the dining room where you can switch back to the original style as soon as your fascination for all things retro fades away. This is also a budget-friendly way to redecorate that lets your dining room blend in with the adjacent modern kitchen or living space far more seamlessly.
