Remember to consider the size of the room as well as the amount of natural light it receives, as it may take on a more practical use in the daytime, for home work or housekeeping, for example. A room flooded with light can take its own during the day when embellished with dark colours, which in turn would be the ideal back drop for a romantic setting at night. However, a effortlessly darker room may benefit from a lighter touch of pale tones each day, which may be heated up with subtle lighting at nightfall.
Even studio flats can have a table and chairs. Look for ultra slimline dining tables (that one even has a storage area drawer) and second-hand seats that you can customise.

Counterbalance with blue tableware and a single velvet statement chair in cobalt to stand out and harmonise. Improve the relaxed vintage vibe with on-trend mid-century style furniture.
