Delicious Dining Rooms

I love creating different meals so a dining room for me needs to be a relaxing place to enjoy a tasty and satisfying meal with family and friends or quietly on my own. Here’s a few designs that have caught my eye……

I love this big table with the simple elegance of the white chairs. The decor is soothing with very clean lines. The roaring fire adds a real homely feel. From Prime Home Design

Love this deep violet and pink damask wallpaper from Graham & Brown, I think it looks good on a feature wall but perhaps it’s a bit much for all 4 walls.  Keep furniture simple but luxurious, with a glossy black dining table and high-backed chairs in a rich plum. Complete the look with glistening accessories, such a gold table runner and bronze mirror. The chairs are from House of Fraser, and wallpaper is from Graham & Brown

I love the different coloured chairs all scattered around the long dining table. The design has a very relaxed, open plan feel to it. The bookshelves with all those lovely books on them really do it for me. From Eclectic Living.

The colours are gorgeous in this design, the table top is stunning and I love the turquoise wall. By A Stylish Nest.

The chandelier really makes this design, love it. By House to Home.


Red Interiors….

Red can look amazing when used properly in Interior Design. It can add real drama and passion to a scheme just by adding a couple of accessories, cushions or an accent wall.

Here are a few red Interiors which caught my eye….

Red can sometimes be quite overpowering but I think this design works well with the creams and whites balancing the reds of the walls and cushions. Photo from Home Design Gallery

Got to have a bit of boho in here somewhere….I think the hints of red in the design add a really unusual finish, I love it.                                      Photo from Little Blue Deer

Flowers add subtle accents to any design. I love the tarnished gold vase in the first design. The red walls in the second design look great with the pictures and photos which are all a little bit wonky, very shabby chic, love it! Photos by

I really wanted to find a red bathroom too and this was the one I liked. I think the bath is amazing and it really complements the toile wallpaper.  Photo from Home Decor.

More ways with Purple

Here’s some ideas of how to use purple in your room designs…..

Purple and gold are actually a royal combination. By using both together it looks classy and sophisticated.

Choose fabrics with a subtle shimmer to add depth, this plush velvet sofa does just that.

Just a few accessories in the same colour as the wall, or slightly darker, and bright pinks pull the look together, as shown by the pink cushion, the purple vase and the deeper purple in the right hand picture on the wall.

I really love this design, it shows for me how purple and green work so well together. The accents of white lighten the whole design up….they could have tidied it up a bit though, they must have known they were going to have a photo shoot!!

Wow! Charcoal grey walls…stunning, and the silver sofa…very sumptuous. My favourite colour is turquoise so obviously the little gorgeous bursts of turquoise appeal greatly to me, but in my opinion it is the purple which adds real depth to this design, it seems to pull it all together. Surely they need to make the chandelier a little higher…heads will be bumped!
