The idea that a home draped in tropical style feels like a delightful getaway and brings a hint of that exotic goodness indoors is the reason why so many homeowners are willing to give it a shot. Tropical style, though, is not singular and monolithic, and there are many different versions and strands of this broad style that vary greatly. It depends largely on your inspiration, the region of the world that you have drawn the different elements from, and of course, the uniqueness of your own home. And a good place to start experimenting with tropical style is the dining room!
Modern dining rooms are increasingly being relegated to a small, designated corner of the kitchen or living area. The age of the expansive and lavish dining room is definitely behind us. Today’s dining rooms seem to place efficiency ahead of flowery aesthetics and it is simplicity that trumps extravagance. The advent of the social kitchen along with a greater urge to turn the open living area into a gathering space for family and friends has seen dining space take a turn towards rustic and natural decorating choices.
Dark and Dramatic Today‘s first featured palette is perfect for Halloween, but it can create a decadent holiday look as well. Layering dark hues such as grey and black lets the colors of the food and flowers truly pop. Try pairing a grey tablecloth with black flatware and burgundy florals. Serve edibles (such as pomegranates and plums) in shades of violet. Create elegant displays of candles and greenery.
With a chill appearing in the morning and evening air, now is the perfect time to start planning fall dinners, gatherings with friends, and upcoming holiday meals.

As textile design becomes more and more adventurous, it can still be surprisingly difficult to find a stylish table runner.

Even when offering a range of colors, retailers sometimes still manage to leave the season’s hottest hues out of the fun. This fall, colors such as teal, wine and deep grey are all the rage, yet some of these shades are (very) slowly finding their way to the table. We’ve searched high and low to bring you the table runner finds below. From basic solids to trendy patterns (and even a few DIY favorites), get ready to plan your next tablescape
