Transform  your dining room ceiling into work of  paint or textured art ,its masterful way to bring attention all the way to the top .

The dining space mixed with wall to wall shelving books is both a library and a dining room .

Stimulate your vision by installing two pendant lights over your dining table .go a step further and place coordinating but not matching host and hostess chair if possible .

Stack all your favourite wines right up the wall of your dining room instead of using paint or a wallcoverig . They make for a definate star attention .

Place an oversize free standing or wallmounted mirror on the focal wall of your dining room for maximum effect .this is especially great for a small dinig room . 

The bright yet soothing green on the walls is a beautiful choice . Its almost neutral , but interesting enough not to be boring . This colour goes with anything and everything  while giving your space a punch .
Here is a great use of colour that is bold without being over the top .
