However, if you want a quick transformation to your dining room ,why not select a new fabric for your chairs why not select a fabric. Mix and match a traditional chair with a contemporary fabric and now you have just created your own eclectic style. One last suggestion: area rugs are what I call a great anchor to any room design. It creates such a detail focal point centering your design and making it complete.
One of my favorite ways to transition a dining room for the holidays are tablescapes, because they are simple but stunning ways to add a little something special to any bare space. You can select a collection or an assortment of things special to you. Tablescapes create artwork to a room whether it is your dining table, coffee table, nightstand or a bare corner in a room. My favorite accessories to any room are fresh flowers and candles.
When it comes to details we often overlook lighting which is key to any design. Incorporate some new lamps or change out those lampshades. A quick tip to transforming your existing lamps into a new look creating a different style by painting the base with a metallic texture . Changing the shades by selecting a wallpaper or fabric can create a dramatic yet gorgeous look.
5. Wall Art
Finally: wall art. Wall art speaks volume into a room telling a story about you in so many ways. When designing on a budget take your favorite quotes and print it out and place it in a black frame.
