Choos­ing a sin­gle, uni­fy­ing style is im­por­tant for con­nect­ing spa­ces such as the kitchen and din­ing area. In this set­ting, we’ve gone for in­dus­trial-style fur­ni­ture from Har­vey Nor­man’s d-Bodhi col­lec­tion. The story of d-Bodhi be­gins with the Tec­tona gran­dis tree from East Java. Known as teak, the wood is pop­u­lar for its beauty and dura­bil­ity and is used in many homes and build­ings. d-Bodhi re­claims the wood from de­mol­ished build­ings, pays a fair price, then crafts the beau­ti­fully sea­soned wood into in­di­vid­u­ally-cre­ated fur­nish­ings that last for years.


A bright yet wel­com­ing colour on the walls in the kitchen din­ing area is the ideal base for cre­at­ing a mod­ern and sleek look­ing fam­ily space. Get this look with a fresh and clean colour like Re­sene ‘Green Smoke’.


Choose a theme for your din­ing area. We have gone for con­tem­po­rary style wooden fur­ni­ture with sim­ple lines and a re­cy­cled looked fin­ish. The black metal de­tail­ing, teamed with sleek black din­ing chairs give the room a loft apart­ment style feel.


Warm up the space with a gor­geous pale coloured, woollen rug un­der the ta­ble. By us­ing a lighter, softer tex­ture to the fur­ni­ture you will brighten the space and at the same time add warmth and depth to the room.


Shelv­ing in the same fin­ish as the ta­ble and dresser ties the area nicely to­gether. It is also the per­fect way of keep­ing all your table­ware on dis­play as well as close at hand when en­ter­tain­ing.


Freshly cut flow­ers and green­ery are a bril­liant way to make a state­ment and add an­other di­men­sion to the din­ing area. Be brave with your bunches and cre­ative with what you use, the big­ger the bet­ter. Pot plants and suc­cu­lents will also sit well in the shelves and dressers of this space and add to its con­tem­po­rary fresh­ness.


Sim­plic­ity is key to cre­at­ing this loft life­style look. Don’t over clut­ter but do in­clude a va­ri­ety of tex­tures and fin­ishes in your ob­jects as this cre­ates depth and in­ter­est to your din­ing area. Com­bine ce­ram­ics, wood, glass and tribal look pieces in sim­i­lar tonal colours and tex­tures to cre­ate a truly beau­ti­ful room.
