‘This week, I’m pulling together ideas for the sophisticated dining scheme. I’ve been inspired by rich inky blues and emerald greens, offset with warm metallics, shiny glass decorations and lots of sparkle. Upholstered chairs in on-trend velvet and a beautiful oak dining table will certainly give this room a statement look. I’m sure you’ll love the colours and look of these three stylish decorations, my inspiration for this elegant moodboard.’
