Blonde Wood is Back in the Dining Room
Trends in dining room furnishings tend to come and go but one perennial favorite is midcentury modern. The sleek designs and clean lines of this furniture are a perfect match in nearly any home, whether it uses contemporary or traditional décor. And one aspect frequently found in both midcentury modern and Scandinavian (which is very similar in style) dining room furniture is blonde wood. This year blonde wood is making a big comeback. Here is what you need to know about using this material in your home.
What is Blonde Wood?
Blonde wood is, simply, various species of wood that are light in color. Most often, light-toned varieties such as ash, maple or birch are associated with blonde wood furniture. These pieces look particularly dramatic against a dark-painted backdrop, but they work equally as well in a room filled with bright, white décor for a space that instantly uplifts your mood.
Decorating the Dining Room with Blonde Wood
One thing to keep in mind when adding blonde wood furniture to your dining room is that a little bit goes a long way. It may be tempting to purchase an entire suite of matching, light-toned pieces, but that would tend to overwhelm the room and appear dated. Today’s trend of blonde wood home furnishings is best incorporated one piece at a time.
