The 1950’s was a time when dark rich and robust colors were abundant in homes. Dark yellows or golden tones, saturated browns greens, oranges and other neutral tones, such as deep browns. So many of these colors were used in combination for a colorful display on patterned furniture, rugs, draperies and wall colors. Wallpaper was also a big trend for the 50’s, so if you prefer to create a focal wall of vintage style wallpaper, that will give you a starting point to lead you to where you want to take your décor theme for the rest of the room.
Look to abstract modernism when designing a dining room – its linear furniture and sharp, clean lines are perfect for a compact space. Incorporate a countertop that is almost shelf-like in its appearance, while bar stools with slim, spindle legs are a great choice for minimal and compact schemes. Continue the less-is-more approach on the walls and flooring.
You may want to consider leaving one wall as a focal wall, creating a distressed brick wall for an industrial look, or expose some brick areas on a couple dry wall, walls, as if the brick is coming through. Ceilings, and flooring are also ways to use rustic or industrial types of materials to enhance the feeling of being in a warehouse, barn, or other industrial environment. Wood flooring, or granite all work in an industrial dining room, and your ceiling might really complete the room with large wood beams or exposed piping.
The color palette for a transitional room are typically smooth and creamy. Creams, light browns, and muted blues, greens and grays, among others. Wood furniture pieces can be dark shades of wood, and are the preferred look for this type of décor as opposed to light oaks. The same color scheme for wood flooring choices also applies, using dark cherry wood, Mahogany, and other dark colored woods. Splashes of color should be limited. A colorful flower arrangement on your dining table or buffet will break up the understated tones in the room, or add accent colors in your dining chair cushions or draperies, are other options.
