Desperately need help with my Dining room!!!
March 20, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I just hung a new dining room fixture and painted the walls a new color. Something doesn't look right and I can't figure out why. Does anyone have any decorating idea's/advice to help complete this room without spending a lot of money?

fixture is too high; I usually like them in the 36" from the table range..............

Too many hard surfaces. You need to incorporate some fabric and colors. Simple side panels on poles over the window in a subtle print. Get rid of the boxy wood tray and candles and bring in a colorful glass bowl. Soften the harsh candles of the chandelier by adding small shades. The white on the spindles looks old and harsh with your dining room set. You may want to take attention away from them by painting them the same color as the wall.

Can you remove the lower spindles? It feels like a jail cell with all the vertical lines. What about treating the spindles with a brush of stain to soften the white? Below is a pick of painted spindles. Window treatments will help immensely. But choose a fabric that will not block natural light. I like the floral below. A fabric runner with a glass decoration.
