Introduce instant wow by hanging a striking pendant light with big round bulbs in the centre, right above your dining table. Items from your kitchen, like stacked boards, plates and fresh fruit, can make a lovely centrepiece for your dining table. Benches make a dining room casual – and up the seating capacity. Soften them with fur throws in winter or thin cushions in the warmer months. Freshen up a space with pops of greenery, but try positioning them off to the side of the room, rather than just placed on a table. Mismatched chairs give character to the room. Choose complementing colours and have fun with the shape.
