The dining room is the gathering place of family and friends alike. It serves as the backdrop to holiday gatherings, celebratory meals and festive affairs. Create stylishly sophisticated romance in your dining room to bring out your romantic side at every event.
Start with the staples
A dining room simply a dining room without chairs and a table. Make yours the centerpiece by choosing bold, attention grabbing pieces. Since this furniture will endure Thanksgiving turkeys, New Year’s hors d’oeuvres and more, look for quality. Choose a strong table and pair it with comfortable chairs that have slipcovers or easy to clean fabric.
Let your colors pop
Here, pink pops against it’s light counterparts. Don’t overwhelm the room with your romantic shade; instead, let it speak for itself. The pink accents are featured in this room because of their ability to stand out.
Create the unexpected
Mismatched chairs at opposite ends of the table in bright pink create unexpected visual interest. Their textured fabric makes them even more unique. The crackled finish of the table, unique art piece and layered orchid centerpiece create a romantic atmosphere even though they might otherwise not seem cohesive.
