The coolest, most sublime way to update your dining area

 

Bring a sophisticated and tranquil feel to your dining room with this bright, au naturel look

 

While the word minimalism can conjure up ideas of some stark spaces, add the right pieces and it can be a serene, relaxing space with personality. Here’s what you can keep in mind if you’re aching to swap your old dining space for a, easy-breezy, Zen-like one:

Let the sunshine in, softly: Whether you have large windows or small, ditch heavy drapery and dark spaces for light, sheer fabrics that soften the light entering in. When it comes to opening out small spaces, and letting well-chosen pieces shine, nothing works like energy boosting natural light.

Try simple light wooden table, clay and ceramic accessories and a creative mix of beiges and browns throughout.

Keep it natural - Stay close to nature with organic upholstery and furnishings, simple light wooden table, clay and ceramic accessories and a creative mix of beiges and browns throughout. Inject a pop of colour into this muted, neutral backdrop with a mix of succulents, large leafed monsteras, ferns or even a unique Terrarium.

Use your wall - Some of the best minimalist spaces are reflective of the people that live in them. A small gallery wall of your favourite memories is a cool way to personalise the space, be a conversation starter and make the space your own.

Whether you need to re-do your dated dining area or just want to open out your space, a calming, minimalist look can be exactly what you need.
