Get The Look #3 – Food & Fun

The Lapwing dining room is a great example of how simple tips can really bring a space to life, mixing subtle touches with bold statements.

Creative Crockery

Forget your standard white Ikea plates and bowls – opting for imperfect shapes, mottled textures, and earthy tones can really bring your table to life whilst still being just as functional.
Team these rustic options with gold cutlery to really stand out, and make the table setting just as exciting as the food you’re about to make!

Frame It Out

The kitchen diner is an opportunity to really inject some fun into your home, with graphic food-themed prints or blackboard styling to mix retro heritage with modern frames.


A Sense of Height

Plants and trees shouldn’t be kept in the living room or bedroom.

Add a new dimension to your dining space with dried flowers or floor plants to create different levels, and soften what can otherwise be a space full of straight lines.
