Sit back, relax and enjoy a good meal together – this is what people do in their dining rooms. Dining rooms can be decorated in many different styles and periods, from formal to casual and antique to modern. Of course art for dining room walls should complement the decorating scheme you have decided on. Whether you choose a historical theme or are in love with contemporary, your dining room pictures can serve a number of purposes.
Inspire your guests to eat! Everyone knows that orange is the colour that stimulates the appetite. If you love orange, add dining room pictures to the walls in ochre or orange hues – for example, many of the artist Franz Heigl’s still lifes have warm ochre as the keynote colour. In combination, his “Mediterranes Leben”, “Kuerbisse und Terracotta” and “Provenzalisches Gedeck” would make an inviting arrangement of pictures.
Images of luscious food in appetising orange hues are one strategy for livening up your dining room décor. Another might be to add pictures that give your guests something to delight in while enjoying their meal to the walls. Botanical prints add a fresh note to every room – and viewers never tire of their fascinating variety. “Greencombe Triptych”, “Allium pink” or “Flowering cherry tree” are all excellent choices for dining room walls.
If your tastes tend toward the modern, choose dining room pictures with tabletop themes: cups, coffee, wine or dessert. “I love Salad” is a cheery reminder to eat healthy food, “Dolce vita” is a reminder of the good things in life and “Pasta” is, well, pasta. All by the illustrator Elisandra Sevenstar, these works will be the graphical focal points of any contemporary dining room.
