Parking your high end car right net to your living spaces can bring in some added charm to your home. A splash of color, a mean machine and a bed next to it could accentuate the interior of your home.
Dinnerware in grey and black will add a deep, rich element to your fall table, while flowers and greenery provide yet another opportunity to layer on the color. Don‘t be afraid of a saturated look. Fall holidays are all about celebrating nature‘s bounty, so take your cues from the vibrant leaves outside. Plus, this season‘s top hues are more understated than radiant, so use them freely without the worry of overwhelming your table.
Waves in the Distance A kitchen with an ocean view need not be just relegated to homes that sit right next to the beach, as those in the distance can also make the most of their location with some smart design. A home sitting on an elevated lot and offering a bird‘s eye view of the coastline in the distance allows you to shape a kitchen that enables you to savor the scenery without letting it dominate the ambiance of the room.
Adding Black to the Mix A great way to bring the modern dining room in neutral hues to life, even while using a wooden dining table, is to turn to black. Black anchors these breezy dining rooms, accentuates the key features of the dining space and also allows the dining table to shine through. This can be done using pendant lights, chairs around the wooden table or a classy, dark tabletop itself. Using darker tones of wood for the dining table and chairs next to it also adds to its dramatic aura and turns the table into the focal point of the room.
Choosing the Right Decor If you want to give the modern dining room a more nature-centric look, then choosing the right decor is as important as the color scheme. A vintage hutch or credenza in the backdrop can give even the most contemporary of dining rooms a traditional touch. Old wooden cabinets that are repainted in white work well in shabby chic settings, while antique furniture can easily fit into dining rooms with a wide variety of themes, ranging from traditional to vintage-modern.
Modern dining rooms are increasingly being relegated to a small, designated corner of the kitchen or living area. The age of the expansive and lavish dining room is definitely behind us. Today’s dining rooms seem to place efficiency ahead of flowery aesthetics and it is simplicity that trumps extravagance. The advent of the social kitchen along with a greater urge to turn the open living area into a gathering space for family and friends has seen dining space take a turn towards rustic and natural decorating choices.

How we style a dining room is one of those decisions that not only affects our home interior, but also our quality of life. A dining room must be beautiful to look at, sure, but it must also be convenient to dine in. The most important piece of the dining room is, understandably, a dining table. There’s more to decorating a dining room than just picking out a table and setting it in the center of the room. Additions like a stylish rug can make a big difference to the overall ambiance.
