A blend of modern and Asian styles is pretty easy to achieve, and you can mix several contrasting elements from different cultures in such a setting without having to go down the eclectic route. The simplicity of a beautifully crafted, oriental room divider, some framed scrolls that you picked up from your recent trip to China, or maybe even a statue of artwork depicting Buddha can get the job done without demanding a complete makeover of your existing, modern dining space. Custom dining tables in wood, intricate wooden carvings and breezy lantern lighting can also usher in the ’Asian-inspired vibe‘, even while seamlessly amalgamating with the contemporary appeal of the open plan living area.
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!

An iconic image of the 60‘s and 70’s that has been burned into our brains by Hollywood and TV is the cool diner with its jukebox in the backdrop and color being used in an expansive manner pretty much all around. If you have an unused corner in your kitchen or wish to turn one in the open plan living area into a dining nook, the cheerful booth or banquette is a great option indeed. It seems authentically retro when filled with multi-colored accessories, bright and beautiful seating and a smart dining table. This is a wonderful solution for the small dining space in studio apartments as well!
Want to go more midcentury with just a pinch of retro thrown in? That definitely seems to be a more popular option among homeowners than dining space that adopts a kitschy retro theme. Midcentury design brings a certain sense of inherent ’order`, thanks to the use of clean, straight lines and uncomplicated design. Finding a compromise between both worlds is absolutely possible with a bright, colorful sideboard or a classic credenza with a lustrous sheen that sits in the background, even as your contemporary dining room sits proudly in the foreground.
