Clutter on top of clutter with paper, bills, magazines, etc. What happened to the dining table and how did it become a “catch-all” for everything other than dining? Well, now is the time to get your dining room in order and get it dinner worthy.

If neutrals are your color of choice, don’t fret, you can jazz up a neutral space with the right touches of texture to excite the hungry. A sisal area rug and wicker chairs add the right amount of elegance to this dining room. Top the table with yellow candles along with some natural elements and you have the right amount of color to this dining room.


Take a modern approach to your dining room, Neutral walls, dark furnishings and white leather dining chairs. Always layer your window treatments with both blinds and curtain panels or with sheers and curtain panels for an added touch of elegance!


Maybe sleek and elegant is more your style. The use of clean lines and glass make this dining room spacious and classy. Neutral wall tones aids in the clean lines along with the glass dining table to give the room a very spacious appeal.


Add a little spice to your dining room….orange spice that is! Again, neutral wall tones allows your eyes to focus on the orange chairs. Natural woods tones prevents wood tone clashes with the dark wood dining table and the legs of the chairs. Always top your table with either candles, a fresh bouquet of floors or both.

Gold colored window treatments adds the right amount of color to the room. This room is highlighted by the moldings on the walls and ceiling.



Have Fun with Blue and Yellow Rooms

ImageI recently attended a wedding of a good friend and the color theme for this wedding was white, yellow and royal blue. The wedding bouquet was absolutely gorgeous and as I sat there enjoying this wonderful day for my friend and his bride, I couldn’t help but think about how wonderful a room designed in these three colors would look.

Blue is a color is we all associate with, whether it’s a beautiful blue sky, the ocean and the calming sense we feel with the color blue. Just as the color yellow makes is feel joyous, excited and who doesn’t feel good when you look up and see and feel the warm rays of the sun.

The combination of the two colors, cool and warm can make for a very vivid and fun living space.
