This Gorgeous Dining Room Features One of Next Year's Biggest Trends

So you're probably looking at this gorgeous dining room designed by Sarah Sherman Samuel and thinking that it's something only the professionals could pull off, right? Wrong! Its unique blend of boho details and modern elements is dynamic, but it's in no way out of your hands. All it takes is a keen eye for proportions. Horizontal lines are a major trend in the 2018 interior forecast, and the striking impact of this rug on the overall design determines everything else around it. The simple silhouettes in the dining set don't compete with those black-and-white stripes, as the bright teal shade of those seats provides a bold hue that ties in the complementary greenery. By the way, did you notice how there are lines in that oversized plant, nearby tapestry, and two pendant lights, too? Those subtle details provide cohesion that makes the whole room feel balanced and welcoming. Last but not least, we have to mention how the back wall adds a dose of style and function to the space. While this aesthetic may be all about balance, it has its practicalities, too.
