I’m loving palettes and textures inspired by tropics right now, perhaps it’s because we’re off on our own vacay next week for Matt’s birthday (Kauai here we come!) and it’s hard to work with the thought of the islands just days away. Also, touches of tropical are trending right now, have you noticed?
Summer is just around the corner and so many of us are dreaming of sand between our toes and swaying palm trees overhead, even if just for a week. I’ve loved this space decorated by Dana Small since it was featured over at House of Turquoise in 2011 (it also appeared in Coastal Living). I thought this breezy casual yet colorful dining room was perfect inspiration for today’s takeaways.
A few other ideas to consider: there’s no need for a rug underneath a dining table if you prefer it that way, it makes for easier sweeping and shows off the flooring. Also notice the table, the rustic wood adds further texture and warmth to the space like the fixture above but a sleek glass top adds a reflective quality and makes clean up practical. Such a breezy colorful space, one of my favorites!
