It’s time to add some texture into your dining room, as this season it’s not only important for your dinner set to look nice but also to feel nice.
Textured effects are a massive up and coming trend, as raised surfaces will add a bit of depth to your table top.
Blues, greys, and blacks are the staple colours for achieving this look – and are ideal for combining with any existing colours you have in your home.
Aztec and oriental patterns are the perfect designs to choose when recreating this style. Opt for geometric patterns and shapes on your dinnerware pieces and mugs to perfect the look.
If you don’t want to commit to an entirely textured or Aztec theme, then adding a few statement pieces to an existing plain white dinner set will modernise an otherwise understated look.
Choosing bigger items such as serving platters and jugs is how you can make the theme more prominent, but if you would prefer just a hint of this design then selecting smaller items such as nibble bowls and mugs will provide your home with just a touch of texture.
You can also combine this pattern with wooden accessories or a shot of colour to prevent your dining table from looking too cold this winter, as this is the perfect trend for mixing and matching with clashing patterns and colours for some organised chaos.
If you’re not keen on too much colour, then you can still replicate the theme by choosing plain white ceramics that are textured, which is the best way to achieve the trend while maintaining a simpler and more sophisticated look on your dining table.
Textured glasses are another great way of emulating the trend. Clear glass will coordinate with any colour dinner set, but coloured glass also looks great if you opt for plainer ceramics.
Make an archaic design look contemporary this season by bringing it into your home for winter 2014.
