Dining Room In Warm Tones
Warm color palette can consist of combinations of such colors as cream, beige, yellow, orange, red and brown. Mix shades and tints of these colors to create the most surprising and beautiful combinations. Look through decorating magazines to get additional color ideas.
Wood will add a necessary texture to the dining room in warm tones. Wooden molding on the floor, shelves and picture frames can look great with wooden table and chairs. Arrange wooden baskets as decorating elements in parts of the dining room. A large vase with beautiful wooden twigs can add interest to the corner of the room.
Fabrics will add interest to the dining table and chairs. The upholstery doesn't have to match the table cover, but they have to flow together.
With a neutral table cover, make the china your focal point. Brighter shades of red and yellow look great together in a dining room with warm tones.
Put flowers on the table to complement the colors of china and food. Make them shades of reds and white or a combination of orange, red and yellow. Or you can just simply match the dishes to the colors of flowers or other decorations on the table.
Make lighting your accessory to set the mood. Consider an adjustable light fixture to suit all dining room functions. A light colored table cloth will bring more illumination to the table and will let the tableware stand out. A darker setting will make the dining room feel romantic and mysterious.
