Spring decorating your dining room

Floral patterns are a great way to decorate your dining room for spring.

The dining room is one of the most important rooms in the house. It might be incorporated into the living room or kitchen, or take up an entire room all of its own. Whatever kind of dining room you have, with a few simple touches, you can easily decorate it to reflect the joys and colors of spring.

The table is the star of any dining room. As a result, it’s going to form the key part of your decoration. It is a canvas upon which you can create all kinds of different designs.

Floral tablecloths

Table cloths and napkins are an essential part of any dining room table.

But bringing the joys of spring to your dining room doesn’t mean buying a whole new table. As long as you already have one, it’s simply a question of decorating it. The best thing to do is start by choosing the right table cloth. This will serve to immediately bring both light and color to your room.

  • If you’re looking for something that best represents spring, plants and flowers are the answer. A table cloth with floral patterns or embroidery will be the perfect addition to any spring dining room.
  • But not just any old floral pattern will do. You have to use fabrics that help to bring light and color to your room. Carefully select your color combinations, choosing table cloths with white backgrounds and bright, attractive patterns.

Napkins: creating contrast

Floral napkins.

It’s easy to forget the little things when decorating your dining room table, such as napkins and napkin rings. You can play around with colors and textures, combining different patterns to create beautiful contrast with your table cloth. This is the perfect way to bring the joys of spring to your dining room.

  • If you have chosen a very floral table cloth, you can create contrast by combining it with more simple napkins. These in turn can be combined with floral napkin rings. The important thing is to make sure to add plenty of color.
  • When it comes to napkin rings, there’s no need to over-complicate things. You can even make them yourself. All you need are some dried flowers and some string to tie your napkins. This is a really simple way to create some really spectacular results.

Colorful crockery

Your crockery says a lot about your personality, so it’s important to pay attention when choosing the set for your dining room. It’s also a great way to bring that spring-feel to your home.

However, so that you don’t overfill your table with patterns, it’s best to use more subtly decorated elements, with floral engravings rather than painted patterns. This is a great way to give your dining room table even more color and vitality.

If you enjoy playing around with light, you could use colored glassware instead. However, people often worry about buying this type of crockery. As they are usually one-off pieces, there is a possibility that you won’t be able to find replacements if anything gets broken.

If you don’t want your dinnerware to be overly colorful or showy, you could go for more subtle colored glass sets. Some are only colored at the base, while the top of the glass is clear. This is a great way to add color without going over the top.

But florals aren’t the only way to bring the joys of spring to your dining room. On the one hand, you could use natural fibers such as raffia, wicker or wood. These materials are perfect for giving your table a natural and original touch.

On the other hand, you could incorporate cutlery with wenge wood handles. These are becoming more and more common in decorating and home stores, which are selling dinnerware in an increasingly wide range of colors and materials.

Wenge wood comes from the tropical tree Millettia laurentii, which is characterized by its dark, reddish-brown wood. Incorporating wenge wood elements is the perfect way to breathe a breath of fresh air into your dining room decor.
