The dining table, whether placed in the kitchen or in a special room, is an essential complement to any home. It is, in fact, the point where the whole family meets at the end of the day, where meals are eaten with loved ones chatting about this and that. Consequently, it is necessary for such an element, with its preparation, to suggest a profound impression of calm and balance: there are some tricks you can follow to easily achieve this goal.
First of all, we must focus on the design of objects such as dishes and dishes. Better to opt for light, rounded shapes, which wink at a vintage style and strike the eye by virtue of sweet and retro lines.
Bowls with minimal geometries, laid with rounded corners, cups and glasses matching the rest complete a picture of incredible harmony.
If you love oriental-style accessories, you have a wide freedom of choice between jugs, teapots and trays clearly inspired by the delicacy and depth of Japanese art.
Importance of cromatic selection
A table that conveys placid sensations of calm must be distinguished by the pale tones. In this case it is essential to lean towards pastel shades, whose soft shades give the whole a remarkable lightness. Colors of this type contribute to accentuating an atmosphere of warmth and familiarity: everyone would feel at home and safe in such a context.
The classic white can be alternated with antique pink, sky blue, pearl gray and beige. Very natural in this sense are also the natural tones of the wood, traversed by suggestive veins capable of evoking the silence and tranquility of a lush forest.
Some details, however, should be characterized by dark nuances, in order to create a pleasant and artistic contrast that will not detract from the serenity of the whole. Excellent solutions are midnight blue, forest green, brown and, why not, black too. The important thing is that the latter is limited to a few details and that it stands out on a light and bright background.
Some examples of furniture for dining tables
A mise en place that suggests calmness and balance could include a set of shabby chic plates and glasses, able to give the entire room a marked touch of romance and instill feelings of intimacy and comfort. Everything should be accompanied by cutlery with a colored handle, as long as it remains on light or neutral tones. Alternatively, the aforementioned oriental style is always a suitable choice: the Japanese ceramic dishes, with their traditional quadrangular shape, are excellent to combine with wooden forks and spoons, rice bowls and handle-free cups.
Around such a table you will breathe an air of other times, relaxing and reassuring, especially if the classic tablecloth is replaced by small embroidered placemats. Some even prefer direct contact with the surface, especially if it is made of wood, pleasant to the touch and sight. With these devices, every single meal will represent a real moment of inner peace.
