Mediterranean living and dining room

A new space four times different - variant 4

A striped wallpaper made of bright, warm natural shades, light curtains in pure white and bright shades such as orange and pink, together with materials such as Ratangeflecht for a slight summer mood.

Straight on the south: The striped wallpaper determines the first impression and creates - transversely processed - a lined background in warm beige tones. The light Mediterranean radiance of the room is created by materials such as the rattan braid of the sofa and armchair and the dark walnut wood, stronger but still by the colors: bright white and southern summer orange, red and pink for pillows and linen voiles. How important the dining area is here is illustrated by its size and its space at the window.


As barren and barren as an empty new space seems, so are the chances to give it a distinctive character. Four examples illustrate how furniture, fabrics, colors and accessories enliven the empty shell in different ways.


Seating and dining area have exchanged locations. According to its importance, the dining table is in front of the window, where it also has more space.

Window seat for the table

The meals, often with guests, play an important role here. That's why the large rectangular walnut table (75 x 200 x 90 cm) stands where it has the most space and the best light: by the window. All around, the bench and chairs (Team 7) made of the same wood provide sufficient seating space.

Tip from the expert: Fragrant curtains in pure white and bright shades such as orange and pink make for a light summer mood. When the days get shorter again and the privacy becomes more important, you can swap the transparent curtains for those made of thicker fabric in more subdued tones.

Bright natural tones of the irregular striped wallpaper create the frame here. The copper shimmer of the bowl is made of metal rings (diameter 50 cm, BoConcept) and the linen of the curtains (Chivasso)
