A Vivacious Splash of Color One of the great advantages of a tropical dining room is the wide range of colors that you can turn to without feeling that it is all too gaudy. Even though the contemporary trend is to keep the backdrop neutral and add bright accent hues, tropical dining rooms can conveniently and effortlessly break this stereotype. A dash of turquoise coupled with white and pops of red, green and yellow does usher in a cool and fun tropical flavor that is inspired by the endless beaches and amazing wildlife of the Caribbean and its surrounding region.
Whether you’re planning on hosting a special dinner with friends this autumn or you’re hosting the entire family for Thanksgiving, it can be a true joy to create a striking color palette for your fall table. Place settings, centerpieces and accents such as table runners can help evoke a look and feel that will beautifully complement the meal. From lush and bountiful to neutral and modern, the color combinations below can be used to channel the vibe of your choice. Let these stunning photos inspire you as you prepare to entertain in the coming months…
Those who want to draw inspiration from the tropics but wish to move away from the typical shades of green and blue dominating the dining room can try out yellow as an alternative. This is a color that never goes out of fashion and gives even the tiniest of dining spaces and breakfast nooks a sunny, refreshing vibe.
Adding Black to the Mix A great way to bring the modern dining room in neutral hues to life, even while using a wooden dining table, is to turn to black. Black anchors these breezy dining rooms, accentuates the key features of the dining space and also allows the dining table to shine through. This can be done using pendant lights, chairs around the wooden table or a classy, dark tabletop itself. Using darker tones of wood for the dining table and chairs next to it also adds to its dramatic aura and turns the table into the focal point of the room.
