Adding potted plants in your dining room is also a smart way in combining nature and man-made stuff. You can place them on a shelf or on the floor. Choose plants that have bright green leaves to give more life to your room. Use contemporary pots that have geometric patterns and neutral colors. You can either opt for short or tall plants. But be sure to choose the right placement for these plants.
Most of the time, neutral colors are used for a contemporary design. You can use this for your dining room, too. But it would be better to use a basic color palette so that your look will remain cool even if new trends will come. Paint your walls with bright white, soft gray or medium taupe. You may also use bold chocolate brown or black for your dining room for a bold appearance. For your accessories, choose colors that will be a good accent like green, red or bright orange. Red and orange are said to be appetizing colors.
Choose a centrepiece that will enhance the beauty of your dining room. You can have a simple vase with fresh flowers or plants minimally used and arranged. You do not have to make it look too bulky. The simpler the centrepiece, the better. You can place white flowers with green leaves. Candles can also do the work well. You can choose earth tones for your centrepiece to get that contemporary look.
