What fabrics suit a dining room?

Dining room colour schemes don’t have to be bland and boring! The dining room is often one of the less-used rooms in the house nowadays, so if you still have a formal dining room, it’s worth embracing that sense of occasion and being a little more extravagant and daring with its decoration.

Which of your fabrics would you recommend for a smart dining room?

You could go for drama with darker blue/green walls and her Herbaceous Border Detail curtains, which would give a lighter feel in the windows. Dark walls and light fabrics are a good combination.

What fabrics suit a dining room?

Dining room colour schemes don’t have to be bland and boring! The dining room is often one of the less-used rooms in the house nowadays, so if you still have a formal dining room, it’s worth embracing that sense of occasion and being a little more extravagant and daring with its decoration.

Which of your fabrics would you recommend for a smart dining room?

You could go for drama with darker blue/green walls and her Herbaceous Border Detail curtains, which would give a lighter feel in the windows. Dark walls and light fabrics are a good combination.

Luxurious interlined curtains cosy up a dining room, lovely to shut out the night in the evening and light the candles.

Which of your fabrics would you recommend for a more informal dining room?

We recommend using simpler fabrics for dining room, such as her woven striped collection. These would create a more airy, modern Scandinavian dining room feel and more in tune with a room that might have multi functions, such as doubling up as an office.

Remember napkins and table cloths add colour and softness to a dining room and can be made from any of my fabrics. They will fade with machine washing but this gives a vintage feel.

All our fabrics are printed in the UK on a good weight of 100% Linen and Linen Union making them suitable for curtains, blinds and upholstery. We hold a good stock of all our fabrics ensuring delivery is usually within 3-5 working days with an overnight service available. The same team, who take you order will roll, inspect and cut it, so accuracy and quality can be assured.
