There are plenty of times when we simply ignore the ceiling and accept it in just plain white. But just like those walls around you ceilings also offer an opportunity to ‘decorate up’ and give the room a visual upgrade.
The gorgeous Thanksgiving table in serene blue and indigo with a leafy tablecloth is from Martha Stewart while the last table in this section has been carefully put together in style with serveware from Anthropologie. Both look equally enchanting!
Do not shy away from using bold colors in the dining room along with your favorite shade of light blue or dashing gray. Yes the rectangle dining table is popular and one that is extendable offers even more functionality. But feng shui suggests using an oval dining table instead.
The gallery wall can bring an element of personal style to the dining room. It can also be used to introduce color and pattern in contemporary dining rooms clad largely in neutral hues. You will not have to commit to long term décor choices while introducing bold new hues in this fashion.
Yellow in its many hues is a color that looks great in every Mediterranean dining room. Yellow brings warmth and sunshine of Mediterranean weather to the modern dining room and does so with unassuming ease.
A perfect gallery wall with black and white prints always ends up stealing the show without going over the top. You can always incorporate a few posters or photographs with a hint of color amidst it all to make it even more exciting.
Slim white or black picture frames look good in modern contemporary and transitional dining areas while wooden and metallic frames make more impact in traditional rustic farmhouse and industrial dining spaces.
Try to give the dining room a balance of elements by adding a small indoor water feature in the backdrop. If that feels a bit unrealistic then connect the dining area with the pool and garden outside using sliding glass doors or floor-to-ceiling glass windows. Nature always gives an interior calming and curated appeal.
