Halloween is in the books, and it’s time to turn our thoughts to a simpler holiday with unbelievable
meaning. While this holiday can sometimes get lost in-between the craze that Halloween brings and
the anticipation for the Christmas season. This lovely holiday offers us the opportunity to reflect
on the gifts we have already received. What a beautiful thought!
Thanksgiving is host to one of the most important meals of the year. A meal that tends to
be highly attended by those near and dear to our hearts or at least the ones that might be able
to grace us. As I’m sure many would second, the best time during the holidays is the time you
get to spend with those you love! It’s around this magical meal where we create bonds and
lasting memories, so we invite you to make this year’s table equally as memorable.
We’ve gathered some inspiring ideas that can help you transform your dining room
from boring to beautiful with some simple steps.
No. 1 – ADD OR CHANGE OUT YOUR RUG
A rug can change the entire look of a room dramatically. It can be the spark of inspiration for an
entire room or it can be the piece that pulls your look together. So if you are starting to feel like
your dining room needs a little pick me up, changing up your rug might be just the thing. There are
plenty of options, colors, patterns & textures!
Thinking about the perfect rug, our friends at Charlotte Rug Gallery can help!
No. 2 – PLAY UP ARCHITECTURAL DETAILS
There is nothing more interesting than the architectural details in a home. For so many they trying to mimic the
character and charm that come with a cool built-in fireplace, textured walls, intricate ceilings, arched windows, etc.
So if you have them, flaunt them! Play them up by attempting to make them a focal point in your room.
No. 3 – ADD SOME NEW ARTWORK
Artwork can create a focal point in a room or work with the focal point. The colors & size can also make
a big impact or instantly change the vibe of an entire room. Bright colors can add an element of fun and
really freshen up the space. Muted colors can add a calming effect.

love or at least some inspiration from Anne Neilson Fine Art.
No. 4 – REUPHOLSTER YOUR CHAIRS
Maybe your fabric really isn’t in need of replacement, but the transformation can be dramatic, really
change the look of your room. The great thing about making a change like this is if you don’t happen to like
your fabric in a few years, it’s a quick & easy change to make again, as needed or desired.
No. 5 – UPDATE YOUR LIGHTING
Good lighting adds warmth, personality and can change the color of any room. The ambiance
of a room can be modified by the amount of light injected. The feel of a room can be
updated by purchasing a new chandelier, adding accent lighting or might even be as easy as
a the change of a light bulb.
Did you know? Different bulbs produce different lighting effects.
No. 6 – ACCESSORIZE THE ROOM
We think this can be the most fun for sure! There are a wide array of options when it comes to accessories,
so find one that sparks your interest and run with it. Because we are talking about changing the look of a
dining room for Thanksgiving, dinnerware and table linens would be a great option. Centerpieces are
another great choice this time of year.
Even if you make one of these changes, you will see a dramatic difference in the look of your room.
