You have an option on choosing focal points for your dining room. Your back yard can be a good focal point and you can do this by leaving your window bare without coverings. This way, you can easily see the backyard and you can also allow entry of natural light and air. Another option is by creating a great interior design and architecture. You can place window coverings by using grass shades or natural bamboo. But you can combine silk with that, too.
Attain a sleek look by using minimum accessories. Use accessories with a natural touch like tall curly willows in a pottery vase. You can add some lighting that will give your dining room a dramatic touch. Choose accessories that don't have much details and prints. Use those that look simple. For your fabric, choose those that have solid colors. If you will use patterns, use bold and geometric patterns.
Your dining area can use a chandelier for focal point. Place it in the center of the room for it defines the space. But make sure to choose the right chandelier for your room. Choose a chandelier with a diameter 12″ less than width of the table and its bottom should be 30″ above the table. The dining area is one of the places for gathering. You can use a dimmer switch in order to create a different ambience for various purposes in using the area. If you have an intimate dinner party, you can dim the lights. If your kids are working on the table, then you can give the area great amount of light.
