Describing the areas of a kitchen dining space can be tricky: where does the eating area stop and the kitchen begin? The key is to choose a considered colour palette to tie the two areas together. Cool neutrals like soft greys and powdery whites work beautifully in both kitchens and dining areas.
Then, pick one or two highlight colours to define the key elements of the dining area. Dining chairs painted a bold shade of red or a midnight blue feature wall is a simple way to mark the dining area as a place to come together and reconnect. Anchor the look with accessories in similar shades. Cooks will feel instantly calmed in the presence of neutrals, while the bold statement colours will transform meal times into a cosy affair.
