Here are some tips to help you along the way.
Many modern homes have an adjacent kitchen and dining room. It creates a space of togetherness while making managing kitchen more efficient. But the dining room has to be more than that.

Shades of White
Most homes in Kerala has white painted on the ceilings as it creates the illusion of bigger and higher and brighter interior. But shades of white can do more than that for your home. Clever use of these shades will give your home a classic and elegant look which never goes out of style.

Pillows and cushions are an efficient yet minimal way of incorporating pops of colour. Purple, burgundy, mustard yellow, and lime green are some of the safe bets. They look great with sofas and walls in all colours. Pillows in shades of brown including chocolate, caramel, and coffee would look great against a blue backdrop.
and get creative with painting these pots. Any colour you choose including red, yellow, and blue will look great in your indoor garden. It is recommended not to use green pots as they will not stand out among the plants.
Carpets and Rugs
While flooring is an important part of the house, sometimes there is a necessity for something extra. Your answer will be carpets and rugs. Indian rugs have been used in home decor for ages all across the world. The rich patterns on fine Indian handmade rugs like Kashmiri and Peshawar rugs can make any home look majestic.
Contrary to popular belief, smaller rooms do not need smaller rugs. Putting a bigger or longer rug will give the room an illusion of being more spacious. Rugs and carpets in light orange shades in a room with an olive green wall is always a winner.
For Every Aesthete
Do you eat, breath, and sleep art? If yes, it is not out of the ordinary for you to have an art collection, and you want to do justice to them while painting and decorating your home. It is not as difficult as one may think. All you have to do is incorporate red in your home painting. Any painting and photograph would look great on red walls.
You can paint an entire room in one shade of red or two different shades of red. But, if you are not a fan of red, and think it will be too much drama for your taste, you can choose one or two walls (in different rooms) and hang the art on them. This will make your home look like an art gallery, and it will be one that you can visit at any time.
