Styling A Dining Table

Many great memories are made around the dining room table. And they’re made even better if your dining room design is inviting, comfortable, and functional.

Accessories are a low commitment way to finish off any room and put your unique stamp on it.  It’s a great time to experiment, have fun, and show your personality. And the accessories will give your room a finished feel.

Here are some tips to assist you in helping the room feel pulled together:

 

Collection of Urns or Vases

These makes a gorgeous centerpiece, especially when stacked on top of books, in a tray or acrylic risers. Or adding a trio of ceramic vessels in different shapes or sizes is a beautiful and simple way of styling your dining table. Add a pop of greenery in one for added interest.

 

Floral or Greenery

While we love the idea of always having a fresh flower arrangement on your dining table, that’s not a very realistic goal. A vase, or two, or three, filled with beautiful faux blooms or green leafy branches will bring colour and life to your dining space.

 

Dining Vignette

For those a little more confident with styling or wanting to challenge themselves, why not create a stylish dining vignette like this using some books, vases and candles. Or even a cutting board or tray as a base and then find items that relate to the dining space such as trivets, coasters or salt and pepper grinders to create a stylish arrangement.

Selecting The Perfect Rug Size

Living room

To unify the furniture in the room, get an area rug large enough to place all the furniture on top of the rug. This will draw attention to the center of the room. To show off the rug as a focal point, keep furniture off the rug and instead use it to frame the rug.

Dining room 

Dining room rugs deaden the sound of scraping chairs and protect the floor from scratching. They should be big enough for the chair legs to sit comfortably on, even when they are pulled out, to minimize the chance of tripping over the edge of the rug.
Allow at least 46 –60 cm of extra room on all sides of the dining table so chairs will remain on the rug when pulled out.

Bedroom

Bedroom rugs are great if you want to warm up or soften hard flooring or if you simply want to add colour and pattern to the space. There are two main techniques for rug placement in bedrooms. Either use one large rug underneath the entire bed with about 60cm excess on each side, or add one main rug at the end of the bed.

Every property is a unique and individual design, styled to elevate its appeal. Whether it’s furniture, accessories, or colour palettes, these elements create the atmosphere, complement the architecture, reflect the style of the home and reference the location and lifestyle.

keekï’s Interior Decorators can assist you with your home. The purpose of a stylist is to curate a bespoke look that will create this visualisation through a design approach that complements the home.

Styling Tips:
Group items on a tray as they make any arrangement of items look cohesive. Stick to odd numbers for balance.

You can use a variety of materials such as concrete, metal, and marble. Mix heights and sizes for
interest.

A burning candle will add warmth and romance.

 

According to the rules of styling, items arranged in odd numbers are more appealing to the eye, so consider injecting colour by styling with three vases and use a trick of adding greenery to one.

Coffee Table

The coffee table is a central piece in any living area, so it’s a great idea to style it in an appealing, but uncontrived way. Focus on size and stick to the motto: less is more. A vignette may include large hardcover books (architectural or travel related), magazines, and a favourite candle.

 

Rugs

A rug really anchors the space and creates distinct zones. Regardless of your style the main rule is to be generous with the size and scale according to the room. Create an interesting and stylish layer, consider commercial grade rugs. Add colour and texture with plain or geometric-patterned area rugs.

 


Lighting

Lighting should create a soft ambience in the living area. Avoid task lighting and focus more on layered lighting. Ideally, lamps should be placed either next to, between or behind sofas. A statement floor lamp can make a strong impact in a contemporary interior, so consider an industrial style that has presence.
