7 tips to create a fabulous dining area!

#1. Use repeating elements such as the lines on the chair and the lines on the hanging metal sculpture to create cohesiveness.

#2.  Keep furniture and other accessories in the same color story while creating visual interest with a single dramatic accessory such as a simple and modern round chandelier lighting.

#3. Incorporate a wall shelf to display a rotation of artwork or photos in a casual dining area to create a focal point and visual interest.

#4. Use bright colored artwork and bold painted walls to heighten drama and beauty to a neutral dining area.

#5. Pairing a combination of ambient lighting together such as a gorgeous chandelier and a few candles to set the mood.

#6. Incorporating a mirror to reflect light, add depth and dimension to a small dining area.

#7. Layering found-items, old and vintage distressed furniture and accessories with the new creates an interesting mix of eclectic, lived-in charm.
