And as the first two months of 2016 rush past us, we take a look at the top trends that will shape bedrooms in the months ahead.
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.

Modern dining rooms are increasingly being relegated to a small, designated corner of the kitchen or living area. The age of the expansive and lavish dining room is definitely behind us. Today’s dining rooms seem to place efficiency ahead of flowery aesthetics and it is simplicity that trumps extravagance.

For those looking to amp up the visual impact, you can even get one of these in striking red!
Rugs for Rustic Dining Rooms Rustic dining rooms are perhaps those who are in need of a rug the most. The natural appeal of a dark, antique decor is very homey and nostalgic, cozy and familiar.

If this little move away from the beaten path does not interest you, then you might want to consider a credenza or buffet covered in reclaimed wood to give the dining space a cozy, inviting aura.
