Decorating a Contemporary Dining Room

Decorating a Contemporary Dining Room

This is a great post I came across on Yahoo Voices, and it touches on something that folks often ask me: “How can we  make our dining room more modern and contemporary?”

The problem most people have, especially those in their 50’s or 60’s, is that their furniture, is, for the most part, older and more traditional, and there simply is no way of making a 9-foot, 1200-pound Queen Anne dining hutch look contemporary. Ditto for the 14-foot mahogany claw-foot table that was passed down from Grandma Sue. These pieces are often well built, detailed, intricate and full of character – but they are most definitely not modern, contemporary, or minimalist.

There are however lots of tips and tricks, and a whole lot can be accomplished by the right use of color, the de-cluttering of the space, and some minimal artistic additions.

Take a look, and enjoy the read – you might be surprised at how easy it can be!
