For a lighter and brighter rustic dining room pick a rug that feels fresh and reminds you of a sunny summer day. A shade of yellow will certainly fit that description and be a great addition to a dining room full of dark wooden elements!
Consider including a favor at each place setting. Small white pumpkins make a lovely addition to the Thanksgiving table. Linen napkins also work well with a grey and neutral palette. For a fun seasonal idea, place a pumpkin on top of each napkin, as shown below. Wash off each pumpkin before adding it to the table (to ensure that the napkins remain clean).
Adding Black to the Mix A great way to bring the modern dining room in neutral hues to life, even while using a wooden dining table, is to turn to black. Black anchors these breezy dining rooms, accentuates the key features of the dining space and also allows the dining table to shine through. This can be done using pendant lights, chairs around the wooden table or a classy, dark tabletop itself. Using darker tones of wood for the dining table and chairs next to it also adds to its dramatic aura and turns the table into the focal point of the room.
