Bench on one side chairs on the other. Putting a low bench on one side of the dining table in place of chairs is an easy way to break up a set typically costs less than buying individual chairs and is great for small spaces. Try an upholstered bench for comfort during leisurely meals or a wooden bench for a sleeker look.

Give newspapers and magazines a temporary home. One neat basket of magazines or newspapers looks fine – a table strewn with them not so much. Dedicate one generously sized basket to house periodicals and commit to weeding out old issues when they no longer comfortably fit in the container.

Dutch blue. Occasionally one element drives the color scheme. "The owner chose the color to match the delft tiles" says James Crisp of Crisp Architects. "It's actually a faux finish with an overcoat of a black texture".
