If you live in a Big City like New York, there’s a good chance your dining room is near the kitchen. In our design for this 1 bedroom apartment in Chelsea we keep the same color concept throughout, steel, smoked glass, charcoal alpaca velvet chairs, the other side has a bench covered in Stark vinyl. Keep the table setting simple, white china, white linen napkins, clear glass wear will make the table seem les crowed because you can see through it. And try bud vases with small white flowers rather than a arrangement.
We kept the color palette of the cabinetry walls all tonal grays so even though its in the kitchen area it flows with the whole apartment.
