Today’s final featured tabletop trend is the beauty of blue and white. It’s crisp, it’s summery, and it makes a refreshing statement. Crate & Barrel is packing their spring offerings with blue and white dinnerware for both indoor and outdoor entertaining. This Regatta Melamine Bowl is perfect against a backdrop of concrete and wood. Yes, blue and white can take a modern turn, especially when clean lines are involved. You can’t go wrong with stripes! Crate & Barrel’s Cabana Navy Stripe Dinner Napkin is the epitome of summer style. Hence the cabana in the product title. We’re loving it! Consider blue-rimmed dinnerware for your spring and summer table. Crate & Barrel gives their Maison dinnerware a classic yet modern update with blue edges. Say hello to the Maison Cobalt Blue collection, which pairs well with a marble tabletop.
Above and below we see the Riviera Table Runner, along with Crisp Dinnerware in blue-green, seafoam and chartreuse. Don‘t be afraid to combine a range of green tones, which will add depth (and even a sense of tropical decadence). Another retailer embracing tropical style this season is Home. They take the look in a bright direction by adding shades of teal and turquoise. Black and white is a classic combination, but when showcased in earthy patterns, it takes a wonderfully breezy turn. Zara Home is leading the pack this season when it comes to this laid-back style, which happens to work with any paint color that covers your walls!
Vivacious color, gorgeous patterns that range from geometric to floral, and of course, spaces that are full of personality and effervescence, retro is a style that is unmistakable and at times over the top. It is a style that has been heavily borrowed from in the last few years, and with the cyclic nature of fashion and design making it a hit among the hip crowd, retro design elements coupled with vintage vignettes are currently all the rage. But infusing some of this lively brilliance into your home decor can be hard, especially for a generation that was taught the simplicity of the 90’s and its functional design principles.
Do not fret about the style of your dining room too much when you are shopping for or custom ordering a live-edge table. While simple things like choosing a table with a light, even grain of wood for modern interiors while opting for tables crafted from darker tones of wood for rustic and Mediterranean rooms helps, it is not an absolute must. Try to find balance in the rest of the room by opting for chairs, a credenza or even the rug and pendant fixture that show the live-edge table in the best light. You will be surprised at how well these tables blend in with styles ranging from industrial, shabby chic and Bohemian to minimal and transitional!
When it comes to banquettes that need to fit in with Scandinavian design, it is best to use color in moderation. It is often the plush seating of the banquette that brings color to these dining spaces, but a wiser option would be to keep the bench seat as neutral as possible. Instead, turn to throw pillows, cushions and other decorative pieces to add color to the banquette dining area. This gives you plenty of decorating flexibility, and you can change the accent colors as trends wax and wane over time. It keeps the core design of the dining space constant.
