Interesting drapes, a cool clock, or a visually-stimulating bookcase all work well. Use symmetry for a quiet overall calm, or less symmetry for a more flexible, free feeling. Use the dining room set as the focal point of the room.
* Add an area rug under the table.
Rugs add warmth and often make rooms seem smaller, creating a cozy ambiance. Area rugs are best when used on hard flooring surfaces. Choose your colors wisely. Allow the rug to showcase your accent colors.
