Embrace country charm and forage for foliage to decorate your dining table. Delicately scatter them around the middle of your table to create an enchanting, festive woodland frame for your centrepiece. 

You can also use a selection of herbs and succulents in different size pots to create an interesting focal point on your table that has a natural, organic feel. 

Combine and contrast texture, materials and colour

Combine textures and materials throughout your dining room such as whitewashed walls which will provide a clean and crisp backdrop for industrial-look steel and oak. 

Contrast a palette of icy grey and white and incorporate cosy faux fur and warmth from candlelight.
