2019 sees us returning to our roots through the use of earth tones. We will share ways to create comfort in open spaces by adding textures, plant life, and defining your dining area.
For many, the kitchen table is where all the conversations begin. Our advice would be to do your homework before you invest in new pieces. Consider the size of your space, or who shares your table day to day. Aesthetically, we are seeing warmer woods mixing with ceramics which create inviting spaces. Feeling daring? Choose a sumptuous fabric like velvet for your dining chairs. Create visual warmth by indulging in green, orange, and brown tones.
