The starting point
This is how the dining room looked before Shanan Campanaro got her hands into the work. It was a normal, actually, very boring dining room It didn’t have color and it didn’t had any vibrant feel to it.
How to decorate a dining room with bold colors – step 1
“The first step involves bringing in a rug, the Akimbo by Eskayel to add a subtle touch of color, and make the hardwood floor seem less vast.”
“Campanaro started the process by taking something she already owned—an impressive collection of books—and organizing them by color. “Organized this way, they act like an intentional part of the design of the room,” she explains.

“Believe it or not, these dreamy photographs are blown-up prints of Instagram photos from Campanaro’s travels. Not only do they add striking hues, they have sentimental value as well: the one in her arms was taken on an island off the coast of Lombok, Indonesia, where she married Nick Chacona, her partner in Eskayel.”

“Campanaro took a plain hanging lantern and turned it into a watercolor-inspired statement piece by dying it with indigo and turquoise ink.”

Use unexpected texture
“Sometimes it doesn’t take another color to add visual interest—it’s a texture that makes the most of the colors around it, such as the Lucite chair she added to the head of the table. “Lucite adds shine and sleekness, which I think is a great contrast to all of the wood,” she says.”

“It doesn’t hurt that Campanaro has her impressive collection to choose from. Here she brought in the Gypsy pouf for additional and unexpected seating. “Our shelving and table in the dining room are fairly uniform in style so having a few different types of seats brings character to the room,” she says.”

Don’t forget flowers
“I like to start with something unusual,” says Campanaro, who created these stunning arrangements. “Then add in a few green options, and then maybe one or two other types of flowers to act as accents.” She also advises grouping a few arrangements to complement each other, as seen here.”
