Please help me punch up my dining room
lbaughmanJanuary 4, 2013
I just added a great Ethan Allen table and chairs to my dining room, but the room feels incomplete. Any ideas for art, plants or a rug? I love neutrals, but wonder what colors could punch things up a bit. Thank you!!

It's a lovely neutral starting point. I'd suggest an interesting area rug that is a little larger than the dining set for a jumping off point. Then add a piece or two of wall art. A buffet or sideboard would be a great addition. It doesn't have to be from the same Ethan Allen collection (I think it would be more interesting if it isn't)

Also agree with Terri you need a sideboard or buffet and a mirror above would be beautiful

Hi---in addition to what others have said, I think painting your curved ceiling (to picture rail/moulding) a color such as Ben Moore's Conventry Gray would really elevate the look of your home. Pic for inspiration... Nice pieces. Good Luck!

How about a beautiful stained glass window for the transom?

Thank you for all your suggestions. I am thinking about adding the Hailee Console from Dania on the left wall to anchor the space.

That console table is lovely! You could also replace your lighting fixture to make more of a statement, since you have the room necessary for it. A wallpaper change may be in order, and a lush cream would help that gorgeous table pop. Going off of the gourds on your table, using some deep fall colors would add a nice pop to the already neutral background you've created. I love this pendant chandelier from AQL: http://www.affordablequalitylighting.com/indoor-lighting/decorative-lights/ceiling-lights/3-light-adjustable-pendant/ There are so many good ideas in these comments! Good luck!
