Delicious Dining Room With A Modern Country Colour Scheme


Hey peeps,

How was your weekend? We had the most marvellous weather on Sunday afternoon, here in the Cotswolds, and I was able to make the very most of it by whiling away a few hours at a friend's beautiful garden. We swapped plants, tips, design ideas and generally had a very lovely time indeed.

How's this for a stunningly put-together Modern Country Dining Room?

I love the wall colour - I suspect Farrow and Ball's Lamp Room Gray, or Benjamin Moore's Gray Horse have been involved somewhere here.

Doesn't the grey look crisp and fresh in contrast with the woodwork and ceiling in pure white? I love the clever mix of brown's...the light, wardrobe, table blinds and that fake bird cage....

Yes, I said 'fake', 'bird' and 'cage'. Together. In a row. Never thought I'd get the chance to say that out loud. ;-)


This is another marvellous example of how a really simple colour palette - grey, white and brown; the classic Modern Country colour scheme - can make a room absolutely sing.

That wardrobe looks a lot like a britton wardrobe. The round carving are quite typical, but I'm no expert. My dining-room is currently displaying a lovely drywall green colour. Does that count as Modern Country?

Totally agree, a simple colour palette and the correct choice of furniture is all you need. This room is beautiful, I love the rustic table and the choice of fabric chairs as opposed to wood - great contrast. The grey walls are perfect against the white - it gives real definition. The large wall unit in heavy carved wood is a great feature piece that completes the scheme.
