A contrasting approach is to add a smart navy blue or bright red hutch to a dining room that is draped in neutral hues. Since most dining room hutches can also be easily used in the kitchen or even in a shabby chic living room, you can always move it out when you want to alter the ambiance of the room. Distressed decor is making a huge comeback in 2016, with styles such as Bohemian and shabby chic allowing homeowners to embrace upcycled and rejuvenated furniture pieces. A lovely hutch with a distressed finish is a classic that never fails, and if you are willing to go down the route of a whitewashed hutch, then you can integrate it into even a contemporary and minimal dining room as well. If you cannot find a truly distressed china hutch, then give the modern piece that you own a custom distressed finish.
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.
A bold backdrop is definitely a must for any room that wants to call itself `retro`, and with audacious wallpaper being one of the hot design trends of 2016, your super-cool and funky retro dining room will seem perfectly fashionable. Wallpaper not only brings color to the dining space, it also adds plenty of pattern to the room, and if you ever feel that it is all too much, then tuning out the retro vibe will be quite easy. When it comes to fabulous wallpapers for the dining room, there is absolutely no dearth of options, and this is also a fun way of demarcating space in the open plan living area.

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!
