1. SET THE SCENE Your ta­ble set­ting is an­other way to add tex­ture and colour to your din­ing room. Crisp linen in nat­u­ral hues and creamy white din­ner­ware are a per­fect match for a tim­ber ta­ble. 2. ART Whether you go for an orig­i­nal art­work or an in­ex­pen­sive framed poster or print, art­work in din­ing rooms should work within the over­all scheme with­out be­ing too dis­tract­ing. 3. LIGHT­ING Din­ing rooms are a great op­por­tu­nity to hang a dec­o­ra­tive pen­dant light (or two!) above the ta­ble to cre­ate a dec­o­ra­tive fea­ture. 4. CAN­DLES As an al­ter­na­tive to pen­dant lights or art, try us­ing can­dle­sticks to cre­ate a fo­cal point. When lit, they also set a lovely mood dur­ing the meal. Can­dles of dif­fer­ent heights look great ar­ranged in the cen­tre of the din­ing ta­ble to cre­ate a fo­cal point.
