“You can’t go past the mid-cen­tury look to cre­ate a plain and sim­ple yet stylish and invit­ing din­ing space.”

THE NEW MID-CEN­TURY

space is light and bright with lots of white and stylish con­tem­po­rary ac­cents that bring it up to date. Here’s how stylist Jackie Brown put to­gether this gor­geous look. STEP ONE The din­ing set­ting is the ob­vi­ous place to start. A two-tone suite in a retro style com­bin­ing a nat­u­ral, light­toned tim­ber in the legs and plain white seats and ta­ble top is the per­fect start­ing point. Look for in­ter­est­ing curves and softer rounded edges. STEP TWO A side­board is a must when it comes to the mid-cen­tury look. Choose some­thing that isn’t too heavy – white cabi­net doors will lighten the look of dark tim­ber and com­ple­ment your din­ing set. The legs are the give­away when it comes to retro style; make sure your side­board sits off the ground on ta­pered or an­gled legs.

STEP THREE A throw­back that’s a must have is the state­ment pen­dant light. Think bold and sculp­tural – pick some­thing with a strik­ing de­sign and strong sil­hou­ette and use it to an­chor your din­ing ta­ble within the space. STEP FOUR Keep to sim­ple ac­ces­sories to main­tain a so­phis­ti­cated look – try a touch of brass com­bined with white or neu­tral-coloured rugs, wall art, trays and vases.
