a Russian-Themed Dining Room

by Allison Cooper

If you've always liked Russian style, but thought it might be too much for your space, don't worry! Your home doesn't have to be as decadent as the Kremlin in order for you to decorate it using elements borrowed from bold Russian style.

The entire world looks to Russia as an exporter of refined style and unparalleled beauty. Russian designers lead the charge in creating elegant, style-forward looks for the home that are treasured across the globe. The Russian culture itself provides many striking sources of visual inspiration. The country is filled with many enduring landmarks that provide a great visual springboard from which to implement elements of style that can be incorporated into home design. From whimsical ballet sets to iconic metropolitan cities to inspiring snow-capped landscapes, there are many ways to bring unique hints of Russian style into your home.

When implementing the top Russian interior design styles and trends in your home it is important to focus on the practical and utilitarian design that has made Eastern Europe famous for furniture and combine it with the theatrical designs that have put Russia on the style map.

Set the Table for Style

A Russian-inspired dining room is sure to become your favorite room in the house. Creating a dining room that is full of Russian ambiance is simple when you focus on a few key top Russian interior design styles and trends. The right look starts with the right table. A long, rectangle table in a dark finish hearkens to images of formal and elegant feasts of dining tables around Moscow. The table need not be overly ornate, since modern European looks favor clean lines and utilitarian shapes that look right at home amid modern architecture. To make a striking statement, you want to surround the table with elements of vibrant red that create a daring atmosphere in the room. One way to achieve this is to surround the dining table with red leather dining chairs. Since Russian interior design is so reliant on texture and color, you will want to pick dining room furniture that invites the possibility of layering vibrantly-woven tablecloths and fluffy chair cushions.

Rich Russian Colors

As mentioned above, red accents such as leather chairs can truly conjure up the spirit of Russia like no other color. Red is especially striking when contrasted to black furniture or hearty solid wood furniture. Other colors that stir up imagery of eclectic Russian style include vibrant blues and snowy whites. Strokes of these colors bring to mind the energetic costume collages that made the Russian ballet famous.

An Artisan Look

No Russian dining room would be complete without an eye-catching wooden hutch to serve as a focal point of the room. The richness of Russian culture demands a space for displaying beautifully-crafted glassware, vases, and plates. An over sized hutch provides a space to display your favorite keepsakes and decorations from the past and present. Adding a hutch to your dining room is truly a statement on Russian traditional style.

A Golden Touch

Gilded accents around the dining room speak to the exquisite richness of Russian architecture. Items such as golden candle holders lined along the dining table or an oversize gold-trimmed mirror fixed on the wall can create an atmosphere of decadence. Gold accents will offset the red items in the room and create a warm look. This is effective for a room you plan on using to host dinners and entertain guests.

Creating an attractive and inviting dining room using Russian elements of style is easy when you have access to the right key pieces of dining room furniture and accent pieces. There is truly nothing more exquisite than having a Russian dining room and enjoying a taste of Russia within every meal you enjoy in your home!
