Here are some dining room decorating ideas to create a comfortable, cozy, and inviting ambience.
Strategically Placing a Mirror
A large mirror strategically placed in the dining room can brighten it up. It can even serve as the focal point of the room, especially if you place a large ornate mirror over a hearth or hung from the wall. You can add candles by the mirror, and the light that comes from the candle will bounce off the mirror and make the room seem cozier at night. During the day, mirrors can make a dining room look larger than it is.
Strategically Placing Furniture
If your dining room is spacious, you could add some furniture inside the room. This will give the room more sitting areas as well as give the room a cozy ambience, especially if you place a breakfast nook by the window or a breakfast banquette in one corner. You can use the same fabric and the same color that your dining chairs have so that there will be continuity in the color scheme, or you can use an altogether different color scheme so as to give your dining room a new twist. But you have to make sure though that the new color you have chosen is along the same color palette of the original color scheme so as not to make your dining room appear gaudy.
Strategically Placing Greeneries
It is a fact that greeneries do add warmth to any part of the house, so if you want to have a more inviting dining area, you can strategically place greeneries and even fresh flowers in your dining room. The greeneries can be arranged artfully over the hearth to draw attention to the large mirror and candles, and the floral arrangements can be placed on the center of the dining table, where they can serve as centerpieces, but you have to make sure though that your floral arrangement does not obstruct anybody’s view.
Hinduism has been the predominant religion for the Indian sub-continent. Sun worship is a main part of this ancient religion and the decors naturally reflects this. The color of the sun is presented through doors, window curtains or blinds, walls and ceilings, and fabric patterns. Circular symbols with lines radiating outward to represent the sun’s glare are common in Indian Home Decors.
How you apply this look to your home is quite simple. Cushy furniture and fabrics can adorn the living room to create an abstract look with a modern twist. The use of light and perhaps airy shades of lemon can serve as the accent color. Carved wooden decorations are also used as traditional ornaments throughout the home.
Furniture made of lacquered are also very popular in India since the resins emanates an elegant look at feel. The materials used in these furniture ranges from Indian oak, nut, or pink wood due to the sturdy aspect. A former saddle or cart might be used as a coffee desk or an elegantly carved door may be used as a top to the dining room table, such is the whimsical nature of Indian style. Not only does this give a real opportunity to add great character to a room when recreating the look, it could also save a lot of money as you may already own old items that could be reused. Other items of furniture to look out for are delicately carved and encrusted cabinets used to store bed linen called damchis and maharajas style wardrobes made of Indian oak with fortress gate style doors.
Silk is a very popular product from India and are used widely as clothing and/or window dressings. Colors ranges are wide but a few that stands out are turquoise, raspberry, light orange, light yellow, or burnt orange. By simply adding these, you will create a marvelous Indian décor to any room or home.
