Dining Room Refresh with Little Green Shed

Planning a décor overhaul? Consider the oft-overlooked smaller touches. Often downgraded to the finishing flourish, it’s the tiny additions that often make the difference. We teamed up with 91 magazine and a trio of interior bloggers to put this approach into practice.

Apartment Therapy has already shown us how with her kitchen shelfies and Lobster & Swan has put the small-touch approach to the test with a botanical living room makeover.

Here, Lou Archell of Little Green Shed pays close attention to the detail in her dining room.

“Refreshing the home to reflect the changing of the season is a really important part of our home life. Fresh seasonal flowers on the mantle and bright fruit on the table introduce little bursts of joy to the room.

Here, I’ve repurposed a large cat cookie jar as a vase—don’t be afraid to use things outside of their intended purpose.”

“A breakfast of Danish pastries, summer fruits and chilled juices looks extra inviting displayed on fresh shades of pink and white crockery and glassware.”

“I’ve introduced off-whites and pastel colours, which look so great against the dark green William Morris paper that I have. The decorative elements I’ve added have a strong animal theme running through them. They bring a playful element to an otherwise classic setting.”
