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.
