Pep up a breakfast time table and bench with a laid-back palette of smooth purples, pinks and greys. Warm-up a natural backdrop with a harmonious mix of stylish cushions of various textures in heather and ash shades to create a tranquil space. Pretty up the table with a fragile crochet table runner and a mix of tableware in pastel shades to keep the peaceful vibe. A big chalky, woven light tone hung off centre creates an almost moonlit environment.
If your table is in your kitchen your decorating options will be limited, so make your dining table special with fabric instead. Co-ordinate a look across tablecloths and napkins, shades, aprons and even oven gloves to turn the table in to the centrepiece of the area. Here the delicate autumnal colours of the fabric and cushion ranges have a genuine decorative impact on the space as a whole.
If another room houses your dinner furniture, design with the complete space in mind. This living area and eating zone share the same overall decorating plan. Stripped and coated flooring and whitewashed surfaces develop a coherent, easy-on-the-eye feel. Matching eating and coffee furniture keep things co-ordinated between your zones, while a rug demarcates the living area; the round shape of the tabletop the eating area.

Remember to consider the size of the room as well as the amount of day light it receives, as it may take on a far more practical use within the daytime, for research or housekeeping, for example. A room flooded with light can hold its own during the day when decorated with dark colors, which would be the ideal rear drop for a romantic setting in the evening. However, a obviously darker room may benefit from a lighter touch of pale hues during the day, which can be heated up with subtle lamps at nightfall.
