Summer dining doesn’t always mean eating al fresco. When the great British weather lets you down, we’ve got you covered with some top tips and home décor products that you can easily use to create a luxurious, fun and stylish indoor dining space.
You don’t need to have a huge dining table to create a summery setting. A standard 4 seater table and chairs can be dressed up in a matter of minutes to create a dining space that can change and adapt to fit each season or occasion. Add some bright, fresh flowers and you’re off to a winning start.
First of all, your plain old scratched family table can be given a makeover using a tablecloth or table runner. We actually opted for something a little bit different after finding these amazingly versatile Soak&Sleep Classic Lightweight Towels in Aquamarine. It says on their website that they can be used as throws, towels, sarongs or tablecloths. Naturally we were a bit dubious, but they really are fantastic! The lightweight material makes for the perfect tablecloth, towel or picnic blanket (we haven’t tried it as a sarong as yet, but it might work!) and the colour is perfect for summer home décor use. Clever or what?…
These light grey dining chairs were provided by The Chair People. This is their budget friendly, ultra luxurious Memphis chair, which as you can see from the close up images, has so much detail. The colour is really versatile and again, will go with everything, meaning that you can accessorise it up for summer, autumn and even winter months ahead. They are elegant, comfortable and come in an array of eye catching designs. Below are just a few of our favourites but you can even design your own! Find out more: www.thechairpeople.co.uk
Aqua themed homeware and kitchenware is really popular at the moment. We’ve fallen in love with the beautiful designs below. These amazing Denby flower casserole dishes are so handy for throwing together quick and easy meals, that look delicious . The mini dishes are also fantastic for creating dainty little individual meals. They look beautiful on the dinner table, or when out on display and will be the sort of pieces that will last for years to come, and can be passed down as cookery heirlooms.
