Deco Trends 2021: The Dining Room Gains Character

In contact with 2021 deco trends, the dining rooms of our interiors take on new colors. Synonymous with conviviality, space is now tempted by more marked aesthetic choices that allow it to stand out, especially in a large living room. Thus, the “zone” dedicated to the dining room asserts itself with a panoramic wallpaper, a colored painting, or with the help of disproportionate suspensions which overhang the table. The trends also advocate the return of furniture with character, borrowed from retro design or tinted with noble materials such as marble, weathered wood. The dining area intends to compete with the contours of the living room in 2021 with comfortable arrangements that invite us to extend the moments at the table – whether for lunch, work or try creative hobbies with the family. So many good reasons to take care of the look of the dining room, with a cheerful and inviting decoration.

Affirm the style of the dining room with a panoramic view

Push the limits of the dining room without touching its size? This is possible with the panoramic wallpaper. The decorations allow to extend the perspectives of a room and are therefore particularly recommended around a table where the decoration should not be overwhelming. In 2021, the landscapes take on the appearance of old engravings or become more abstract for an arty spirit. Regardless of the style chosen, they especially give a real identity to the dining room. A nice way to assert your place in the heart of a volume where several spaces coexist.

Green continues its campaign of seduction in 2021

After the living room, the kitchen, and the sleeping area, it is the dining room’s turn to succumb to the seductive shades of green. Synonymous with good humor, color comes in various forms and in particular through a few strong shades such as olive, moss green, or khaki to color the area dedicated to meals. This type of paint works particularly well around windows: it seems to extend the exterior decor inside. Above all, it is enough to couple a green wall with a wooden table to sketch a natural atmosphere where it is good to meet at any time of the day.

The character of the dining room is also measured by the choice of materials. If wood remains timeless for the table, it is sometimes replaced by the elegance and cachet of marble. Betting on a stone top makes it possible to distinguish the dining area within a large living room – the natural veins of the marble bringing a nice relief to space. However, it is essential to counterbalance the cold aspect of the material with touches of wood, cane, or fleece (embodied by chairs or a carpet). Thus, the dining room finds the right balance between refinement and conviviality.

The dining room seems to stand out in 2021 thanks to the introduction of antique furniture. The pieces of yesteryear, and more precisely those from the 50s to the 70s, offer a different interpretation of the dining area. It must be said that the cane chairs (like those by Marcel Breuer) bring a very special character to the decoration. The dining room is therefore tempted by iconic design elements to upgrade its style. Especially since a single piece is enough, such as a signed pendant lamp or an armchair with a vintage silhouette, to enhance the surroundings of a table. Or when the second hand breathes a unique soul into the dining area.

Campaign spirit around the table

The farm life trend, already spotted in 2020 in kitchens, seems to be making its way into the dining room at the start of this new year. At the center of attention, the table makes it easy to inject rustic notes into the room: a top created with weathered wood, why not lightly stained, remains the best way to appropriate the style. The wooded table brings the authenticity that is sometimes lacking in living spaces. So to counter the “first-degree” effect of aged wood, contemporary chairs are preferred..Campaign spirit around the table – The farm life trend, already spotted in 2020 in kitchens, seems to be making its way into the dining room at the start of this new year.

Enhance the dining area with a bench

The dining room has been trying to compete with the contours of the living room for several seasons – in particular thanks to the introduction of bench seats. This arrangement, synonymous with comfort, is needed around the table to replace the chairs, which are often less cozy and require more square meters. Above all, the bench allows the dining room to become a living space properly – it no longer only hosts meals but becomes a rallying point for playing, chatting with family, or even working from home. Its false sofa airs make it possible to gain comfort around the table and naturally transform uses. By the way, it’s a way to invite subtle touches of color into the decor.

Objective light in the heart of the dining room

Working with light is essential in living spaces, and the dining room is no exception. Certain decorating tips, such as the installation of white paint or the addition of oversized mirrors, allow accentuating the natural light of the dining area. The best solution is certainly to swap traditional partitions for glazed versions that let light circulate without constraints. The canopies make it possible to isolate the table from adjoining spaces (most often the kitchen and the living room), without affecting the primary characteristics of the room. Thus, the dining room retains its structure while taking advantage of new perspectives that emphasize brightness.

Plants bring freshness to the dining room

The need for nature is increasing in 2021 with an upsurge in indoor plants. The trend results from the latest upheavals and in particular confinements, which have forced us to rethink the contours of housing. The dining room is therefore full of greenery to invite the garden to enter, especially in city dwellings where it is rare to benefit from a wooded exterior. Species with large leaves such as the monstera or calathea bring a graphic touch that leaves no one indifferent – when a Rhipsalis suspended from the ceiling infuses an abundant side. Or how to combine style and well-being.

As in every corner of the home, lighting influences the atmosphere in the dining area and must be treated accordingly, not only from a technical point of view but also on the aesthetic level. The suspensions seem to be gaining momentum at the start of the year: the discreet models give way to larger pieces that dress the high ceilings. Boldly. They guarantee optimal lighting above the table and allow the decor of the dining area to be enhanced with just one striking element. On the material side, natural fibers remain relevant but are in competition with the gilding of brass or the natural poetry of ceramics.

More than ever, the decoration of our interiors is meant to be synonymous with good humor in 2021. And to bring back a smile to the interiors as to the inhabitants, nothing can equal the power of colors. Terracotta, marsala pink, coral, or even straw yellow, solar shades replace the shyness of whites in the dining room. No need to create a monochrome to benefit from the effects of color, a simple section of wall can make the difference. This painting technique also makes it possible to identify the area dedicated to meals in an open-plan volume. Color thus plays visual markers as vectors of good humor.

The evolution of our lifestyles, but also the reduction of square meters, naturally impact the contours of the dining room. The rooms dedicated to this function are rare in the interiors, and the table tends more and more to merge with the kitchen. Space can, however, retain its independence with a suitable layout. Creating joinery allows the dining room to be wrapped in a sort of cocoon when it is invited into an already inhabited space. The module in question can be a natural extension of the kitchen shelf, or it can be created on a vacant wall to frame the location. Dining area in a kitchen or living room, regardless of the area allocated to it.

Natural materials dictate living space

Dining room furniture can’t resist the appeal of natural materials. Chairs fashioned in rattan or enhanced with a cane backrest bring a lot of softness to the atmosphere, while a suspension in woven fibers infuses accents from elsewhere that allow you to disconnect from everyday life at mealtime. In short, the nods to nature are multiplying around the table to promote the soothing atmosphere of this keyspace of the home. It must be said that natural materials contribute to the well-being of each other, even with simple targeted touches.
