Runway Inspired Dining Room

This is one of my favorite blog post topics to cover! I love to search the latest looks from the runway and match them up with the appropriate interior and color scheme. Fashion is definitely a great place to look for inspiration when creating a new color scheme for a design project. Just take a pattern (such as the one from the dress below) and pull out maybe 3 - 4 colors from it to center your scheme around. It's always a good rule of thumb to start with a neutral "backdrop" for your space and build on that with layers of color, texture and pattern. Designing a room is a lot like putting together an outfit. You start with the main piece of clothing and build on that with coordinating colors, accessories, shoes, etc.

A cool palette of vibrant jewel tones set the scene for the dining space below. (Model / Dress Image Credit)

Neutral floors and furniture serve as a fresh backdrop for colorful accents like the light fixture, accessories and accent paint / wallpaper in the background. This dining room is absolutely gorgeous, don't you think?!
