The color green can can create a cool, calm, soothing atmosphere that it is no wonder why it is widely chosen by professionals in field of color, painting and decorating. Celadon green is a subdued green that has gray undertones, which makes it a perfect color for period interiors. Celadon Green is originally the  color refers to a specific type of traditional Korean pottery. It’s a very pale spring green often seen as a glaze on tile.

The Neoclassical palette is inspired by the stone buildings of ancient Greece and Rome.  It features a range of white and gray neutrals, along with shades of green and light, nature inspired colors.  Replicate the style
of the mid 1700s with an interest in Ancient Greek and Roman architecture by using pale colors such as pale blue, cream and celadon green, accompanied by black or a rich dark green or Roman red for contrast.  for a

Here are a couple color combinations that work with the neoclassical style:

Celadon Green + Pale Blue + Light Gray

Celadon green has been seen in neoclassical design schemes in the 1700’s. Replicate the style of the mid 1700s by using pale colors such as pale blue, cream and celadon green, with accents of black, red, or Ecru.

Celadon Green + Shades of Purple and Yellow

Celadon blends with many colors, and works well with opposites. Pair celadon green with lighter lilacs, and darker eggplant accents.  Celadon Green also pairs well with brighter colors.  Think about bright sunshine yellow paired with this gray based green, such as seen below in the World Of Interiors August 2007 photo.  Celadon also can be paired with brown combinations, as nature’s colors are brought into the house bringing a sense of coziness and tranquility.

Celadon Green + Kelly Green + Green Blue

Play celadon green with other like ranged colors.   When combined with vivid jewel tones such as Kelly green, and a green-blue range suggesting tenderness and romance. Light green and sky blue can be enhanced by white for extra freshness.

Celadon works well by adding raw wood, such as a desk, or side chairs.  Consider adding in painted black accessories or furniture to add contrast.  Stainless steel, tile and wood will give your room a balance against the pastel colors.

Madeline Castaing

Madeline Castaing: “Madeline Castaing, the French decorator and
antique dealer, was by all accounts a very eccentric character. She had a
great sense of style and consistently created glamorous interiors with
mad eclecticism and unexpected neoclassical taste — right up until she
died in her nineties. Castaing is the only decorator that I am aware of
that has managed to pull off leopard print carpets and plastic flowers
successfully.”

English Dining Room Storage

When you think about a dining room you usually do not think about storage. In fact, though, the dining room is a great place for both decorative and practical storage. A good storage option can make more room, create a beautiful taking piece, and be a great asset to your home. Here are some storage ideas for your dining room.

1. China Cabinet – The classic dining room storage option, a china cabinet is both a place to showcase your good dishes and a convent place to store the, Personally I show off my pretty china in the top part and store things like good silver and tablecloths underneath. Even table accessories like candlesticks and centerpieces can be stored in a large china cabinet.

2. Display Cabinet – This is another great alternative for your dining room. A display cabinet can hold your pretty dishes, knickknacks, or other accessories that you do not have a place to put in your home. A great place to keep delicate items out of children’s hands, a glass display cabinet can be a good storage option for pretty things.

3. Buffet Table –A nice, solid buffet table is a great thing to have on hands for big parties and Thanksgiving dinners. Thankfully, most come with drawers or cabinetry that are great for holding serving dishes and other items you have no where else to store.

4. Angled Shelving –Take lean on me to another level. Angled storage is great in a room that is visually small. The small top and large bottom allows for tons of storage without seeming to take up tons of room.

5. Modern Shelving – Modern shelving in cube shapes and sharp corners can add a touch of newness to a traditional space like a dining room. Bring some modern into your storage!

6. Industrial Shelving – For a truly modern twist, an industrial shelving unit can be a startling but chic way to add storage to your dining room. With exposed metal, piping, and unvarnished wood or metal shelving, it adds visual interest and texture while still holding your stuff.

7. Bookshelves with Taste –If all you have is some bookshelves, then spruce them up with a touch of lace. Adding lace to the back of the bookshelves and filling them with tasteful collections of dishes or knick knacks means adding storage to your dining room without looking cheap or tawdry.

These are just a few of the great storage ideas for your dining room. There are all sorts of options. Take a look at your area and see what would be the best fit for your dining room.
