Beauty Lust List #11: Colour Pop Dining Room Edition!

My last interior design post went down well with you lovely lot (see my White Bedroom Decor Wishlist) so I thought I'd move away from the white theme and show you how I want to create a colour-pop dining room!
My vision is to have fairly plain, pale furniture and a wooden floor, then incorporate some pops of colour using accessories, artwork, candles and soft furnishings!

My dining room has a set of patio doors so I'd love to dress them in these gorgeous cranberry coloured curtains from Yorkshire Linen to give the whole room a vibrant lift. They are the perfect balance of elegant and fun, setting off the colour pop perfectly without being too in-your-face! Even better, they're really inexpensive so I could even mix it up each season with a different set. I just discovered Yorkshire Linen, and they have tons of lovely home furnishings at a really good price, so it's easy to change up the style as and when needed.

Victoria & Abigail Illustrated Tapas Bowls / £19.95 Not On The High Street

I love a pretty illustration, and these quirky tapas bowls have some super cute artworks on the inside with a gorgeous bright exterior! Tapas is one of my favourite things to eat, and I am going for the feel of lots of bowls and plates of food dotted around the dining room table so my friends can sit, eat and have fun. 

Rachel Powell Woodstock Plate / £20 Not On The High Street

A bright yellow plate with a little birdie pattern - what's not to love?! Again, this fits in with my tapas idea and can be used to pile food on and create a more casual dinner feel. Yellow is one of my favourite colours so I wanted to incorporate at least one bright yellow accessory into my dining room!

Colour Pop Candle Holders / £49 I Love Retro

I use candles all the time and I love to use them to provide lighting for ambience at dinnertime too. My favourite things about these candle holders are their different sizes, which means they'd look great gathered together as a centerpiece, or a few dotted throughout the room with an odd assortment of candle shapes, sizes and colours. It's all about creating variation, interest and fun!

A dining room wouldn't be complete without a pretty set of cocktail glasses, and obviously I like the mix-and-match thing, making this set great for putting out on display when not in use. I'd perhaps keep them on a cocktail cabinet or tray with some ingredients ready for cocktail hour!

Fruit Bowl Cushion / £26 Oliver Bonas

I've had my eye on this fruity cushion for ages now, and I think it would tie in with the curtains nicely. Again, it's a really fun, vibrant cushion but I don't think it crosses the line of tacky. For summer, it'll be perfect strewn across a chair - perhaps the rest of my cushions will be plain oranges, pinks and greens to keep this one as the standout?
