As the nights draw in, we’re embracing the arrival of autumn and searching for ways to inject a bit of seasonal styling into dining rooms. Dark winter evenings offer the perfect excuse to light some candles, dig out your favourite recipes and gather together with friends and family to linger over home-cooked meals at the dinner table.
We’ve collaborated with I Love Wallpaper to show you how our hugely popular Parquet dining set can transform your dining space, especially teamed with their on-trend wood panel wallpaper.
Here are some key looks that you can replicate in your home that will see you through the next few chilly months.
Fall for autumn
Whether you’re planning family dinners or having friends round for a long overdue catch up, shift your dining room for the arrival of the cooler months by embracing styling that evokes the feeling of autumn.
The natural wood tones of the Parquet table add a pleasing warmth to the space that looks fantastic paired with I Love Wallpaper’s grey panel-effect wallpaper. Accessories are great for simple ways to reference the time of year. Think candles, scented reed diffusers and use dried plants to bring the outdoors in. We love the look of vases filled with dried pampas grass and pussy willow to celebrate nature while sticking with a neutral colour scheme.
Make Halloween stylish
If you want to celebrate Halloween but don’t want to fill your home with orange pumpkins and tacky accessories, here’s how to make the spooky season a grown-up classy affair. This look is ideal if you’re planning to have a Halloween dinner party with friends and want more of a subtle nod to the occasion.
A table runner in natural tones makes the perfect base for anchoring accessories and creating a focal point. Of course, you can’t escape Halloween without any pumpkins but opting for gold and white decorative ones, definitely dials up the style credentials on your dining table. Add in some delicate lighting and candles and your sophisticated Halloween set-up is complete!
Pumpkin decor, especially when it’s as elegant as this, can also be embraced throughout the autumn months. Decorations don’t need to be put away or pumpkins turned into soup come 1st November and keeping some seasonal references is a nice way to brighten up your home till the Christmas decorations come out!

If you want to clear your dining table after Halloween, transfer your decorations to a dresser or console table in your kitchen. We love how @ourlittlehome2017 have given their Shay dresser a seasonal look that will last for months to come.
Create a winter wonderland
Winter is the time of year when you want to make your home as cosy as possible and that extends to the dining room. We love how I Love Wallpaper’s wood panel design adds depth to an otherwise plain space and makes a feature out of the wall.
Opting for a table with bench seating as well as chairs is a good idea if you want to squeeze in extra guests – something that’s particularly handy over the Christmas period. Make the setting extra magical by creating mood lighting with lots of candles and lamps to add a soft glow to the space.
