Food doesn’t have to be the only recipe in the dining room! That’s why our Design Recipes were created — to give you step-by-step instructions, just like your favorite cookbook would.

recipeThis is one of our favorite recipes for many reasons, but we particularly love the color scheme. The soft grays and blues contrast beautifully with the warm tones of the wood floor. It’s also yet another reminder that great design is often found in simplicity! Nothing over-the-top here, just a sophisticated feel.

When decorating your dining room, remember:

– Don’t be afraid to use contrasting colors

– Keeping it simple is often the best way!

– Tailor the design to what suits you and your family best. Don’t worry about making it look like a magazine spread — it should reflect YOUR tastes!
