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.
But how do you ensure that the banquette fits into the style of the kitchen or the dining space you envisioned for open plan living? A good start would be to opt for a wooden bench that does away with excesses and embraces clean design along with simple, straight lines. Tufted seating or extravagant U-shaped or curved banquettes really do not fit in with the unassuming charm of Scandinavian style.

It is important to settle on the exact appearance you are looking for in the dining room before you actually start to shop for your Asian-style dining room. As we alluded to earlier, ‘Asian style’ is a pretty broad spectrum of styles, and you need a more focused approach when you are redecorating your existing dining space. If you love a vivacious and lavish setting, then think of color schemes like gold and black, or even black and red. Black is the color that brings dramatic panache to the dining room, while shades like gold, purple and red offer richness associated with royalty in ancient Chinese culture.
Since spring is all about experimenting with color possibilities, why not jump on the metallic train and revel in the latest flatware designs? Because these days, it's about much more than silver! This Copper Flatware from West Elm is gorgeous, yet its stainless steel core also makes it hardy. Copper tones mix well with soft hues, such as pastel pink.
