A unique center piece adds appeal to this contemporary dining room. The large painting on the wall makes an interesting focal point to the view. Glass top dining tables are commonly used nowadays which can help make the room look brighter. Using white for the seating pieces makes the dining furnishings a great focal point. The refreshing character of wood and plants combined creates an amazing 'green' twist to this contemporary dining room.
Instead of trying to light your dining area by using only a single source of light, illuminate it using various sources. Having different types of lights in your dining area can also serve as additional decors to your dining area. Also, when you have a single chandelier or overhead lighting as a source of light, it could be too bright making it uncomfortable. So, avoid creating a glare by using multiple layers of light.
Wall colors are very important for it gives the mood of your house. Choose a color that are generally neutral or earth tones. For contemporary wall colors, dark and bright colors are rarely used for it doesn't give natural lighting. You can use bright white, soft gray or medium taupe for your walls. Just accent it with bright colored accessories.
