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.
Light, airy colors on the wall will give the impression that your space is larger than what it is. Dark colors will eat-up, or shrink your space and make it feel like tight quarters. Light blues and greens are popular shades today. They work very well with white trim and light, airy draperies and many different shades of wood.
Furniture from the mid-century was simplistic in design. Clean lines, robust curves, and not overly ornate with their design. Dark woods for your tables and chairs, The most common woos used in this era, and look best for this design, are pieces made of these types of wood, teak, walnut, oak and rosewood. You can mix modern style furniture with older, vintage-style pieces to create this unique look. You may want to consider shopping at flea markets, vintage stores and estate sells to try to get hold of authentic mid-century pieces. These will be quality pieces, and not replicas, although you can go that route if you choose, if it becomes hard to come by pieces you feel comfortable with.
Don’t forget to look up! The ceiling is a great place to explore a bold paint color or a bit of wallpaper, or for adding an element of architecture like ceiling medallions. In addition to dressing up the space, a darker color can create the sense of depth, making the room appear larger.
