Size does matter, but at the very same time it is a very relative term. We say this after looking at many apartments and interiors that are dubbed as ‘small’, yet are sufficiently large enough in our humble opinion. In simpler terms, what might be a small dining room for you might be something that works perfectly well for others. Never design a dining area by simply borrowing the blueprint from a friend’s home. If you are a young couple that eats out most days and rarely entertains guests, you do not need a large Thanksgiving-styled table. A small table for two will do just fine most of the time. Why do you need a huge table that takes up space when all you bring home is takeout?
We start by reinforcing a favorite decorating mantra: there is power in numbers. In fact, we recently made this point in our Decoist article on displaying collections with style. Below we see a group of vases atop the Draught Dining Table from CB2:
If variety is the name of your game, try grouping flowers of the same color family. Below, a collection of yellow flowers creates a monochromatic bundle. Not to mention, rather than resting in a traditional vertical display, these dahlias, daffodils and billy balls are placed in a leaning arrangement for an element of intrigue.
You’re buying produce at the grocery store anyway–why not let it pull double duty as your dining table centerpiece? In fact, when you’re entertaining and your table will be packed with food, sometimes a large floral arrangement just isn’t practical. Keep it classy with a centerpiece of fruits or veggies. For example, a cluster of vivid oranges in a crisp white bowl is the perfect complement to the Odyssey White Dining Table from CB2:
