5 Looks for Your Dining Room, inspired by 2018 Trends

Posted by Winny Rotsidis on Oct 27, 2017 9:07:46 AM

As the leaves turn from their perennial verdant hue to intense burnt caramel and florid tones, Autumn transforms into one of the most beautiful seasons of the year. It's also that time of the year bringing eventful gatherings around the dinner table with your favorite people! Since decorating could be just as important as the meals you're serving, I've decided to focus on these dining decor inspirations:

1. Subdued Wall Color other than Gray to Destress & Harmonize your Living Spaces -- described as a move from whites and neutrals color schemes that have dominated in the last few years, the paint makers' Behr created 20 trend colors for 2018 with sanctuary and relaxation theme in mind. 

In this dining room, Behr's Equilibrium T18-20 paint color is incorporated for the wall giving this space a serene yet welcoming atmosphere.

2. Black as a Statement Color -- another move from subdued to sleek and sexy. Dramatic look in living spaces is boldly missed and now, look out for reemergence in the upcoming year. Black tone amplifies avant-garde feel while providing a sharp/crisp mood that is naturally stylish and elegant.

3. Sculptural & Airy Silhouettes -- according to HFN Magazine's latest report on High Point Market Idea book, mixed-materials in modern silhouettes that unify lightness for structure and elegant form for style captured the consumers' need for a look that speaks a less-cluttered lifestyle.

4. Green + Natural Hues -- due to nature deficit living spaces and the rise of environmentalism, recurring lifestyle changes that focus on balance and harmony in interior design are becoming the norm. From pea green to richer olive shades, look for prominence in teal or ones with yellow tones.

Here, we've curated two dining room looks integrating various green and timber shades as the latest style direction.

5. Jazz it Up with Navy Blue/Gray and Gold -- Antique Gray and Navy Blues complemented with Brass/Gold tone reign supreme. The timeless Blue and Gray palettes imply practicality and calmness, effortlessly combined with Gold tone for an instant drama and luxe effects. 

Our latest Navy and Brass dining decor highlights Gray as the primary color with subtle hints of gold/brass as accents that pop.
