Scheme for a kitchen dining room

The end of the week already? It’s just zoomed by! A busy day yesterday visiting a Client in South Leeds, followed by an afternoon entertaining The Small One and dinner with wonderful friends – Mrs G you cook the best salmon!

We were thinking about how lovely the House Tour was yesterday… and about the particularly lovely eating space in the basement kitchen. A basement kitchen can sometimes feel dark and gloomy (if you haven’t dug out the back and installed bi-fold doors), and the owners had made this one warm and inviting using lots of warm, natural textures and colours. Most of us these days live in homes where the kitchen and dining room are combined, and keeping it light, bright and interesting can really help both spaces come together.

Today we’ve pulled together some inspirational images, and a scheme which would suit a dining area as part of a larger kitchen space.


Lombok Kuta Garden Furniture















This lovely garden table and bench is from Lombok, and looks wonderfully summery and could easily be used inside. Using warm natural textures and zingy colours in a scheme, will bring the sunshine in, even on a gloomy winter’s day.
