If you want to inject subtle colour into your country dining room, take your inspiration from all things summery and, in this case, a delicious ice cream colour palette.
Here, a panelled wall becomes an eyecatching feature wall when painted in a variety of pretty pastel shades, such as Dusty Lilac, Coquette Lt, Smoketree Lt, Sand Tan and Mercury Lt, all by Sanderson Paint, creating a rustic backdrop with a difference.
Keep the look calm and pared-back for best effect. Introduce a Scandinavian edge by painting the rest of the scheme white and bringing in vintage furniture that has a distressed finish. Choose a farmhouse table with a wooden top to cosy up the room and link with the wooden floor. Then partner the table with vintage mismatched chairs to create an eclectic and informal feel. Complete the scheme with a pretty, neutral rug underfoot.
Accessories are a great way of bringing homely character to a scheme and we love the simple display on the top of the sideboard – a beautiful vintage seascape propped against the wall is teamed with a minimal display of country flowers in a glass jar to finish off the look beautifully.
