Embrace Your Inner Interior Designer
Planning on entertaining? What can be more blissful than to indulge in convivial gatherings around a perfectly garnished dining table? A celebration of our loved ones, of ourselves, and of life itself.
Having guests over for lunch or dinner is much more than the food you decide to put on their plates. You want to feed them, that is certain, but you ultimately want to nourish their souls. People gathering around a table for a meal is a most sacred ritual, an escapade out of the mundane, and that is why all hosts make a point to deliver a memorable experience.
Follow our most precious full-proof decoration tips for hosting the perfect dinner.
Take Advantage of Natural Light
If possible, rearrange your living room in order to place a table near the window and benefit from all the perks of natural lighting. An open window is like a tableau vivant into the cityscape or a natural landscape, depending on the location of your beloved estate.
In case of the absence of a natural light source, there are some tricks you can use to brighten up your dining room. Painted white walls, light-colored art, and mirrors can reflect light and add to illumination. And, of course, because not all meals take place during sunshine hours (and because winter light is also a reality!), artificial lighting must not be forgotten. Why not incorporate a Suspension Lamp? It is always a touch of class!

The Power of Statement Lighting
Statement lighting will easily guarantee your dining room the most coveted wow factor. Incorporating a very dominant object of design like this will allow some relaxation regarding the rest of the decor. A strong piece has very few requirements and welcomes contrasting simplicity.
Power lamps can also function as room dividers, especially in the case of open spaces. They will work like a spotlight, highlighting the dining area.

Protect Your Floor With a Rug
Don’t fool yourself: whether you are having a party or a small quiet dinner your guests are dangerous little creatures that will endanger your spotless dining room. Are we being a little too dramatic? Maybe. But better safe than sorry! Prevent dragging tables and chairs from ruining your floor and create a safe spot for your crystal wine glasses to land with a powerful decorative tool: the rug.
Besides its practical use, a rug is an object that brings comfort to a room and can even work as a unifying piece, bringing all elements together.
