Window Treatments – Nothing sets a mood of elegance and sophistication better than custom window treatments in soft, rich and sumptuous fabrics.  Silks, satins, and sheers with iridescent and luminous fibers enhance the ambiance of any room, but are especially effecting in setting the mood and tone of your dining room.


Dining Chairs and Tables – A round dining table definitely increases the sense of coziness in your room, and also helps to encourage free-flowing conversation.  It also allows last-minute guests to be “squeezed in” more comfortably.  Dining chairs should be comfortable and covered in a fabric that adds texture and color coordination to your overall room’s scheme.

Lighting – A key ingredient for a successful dining room design recipe.   Nothing makes a design statement in a dining room better than a gorgeous chandelier – on dimmers of course.  Indirect lighting can help create the intimate mood you desire– as can the soft glow of candlelight.

And, after your dining room décor is complete, the food has been prepared, the table set, sit down and enjoy.  What could be better than good company, great food and beautiful surroundings?
