Form v Function. Wine writer and expert Nick Alabaster suggests you never buy a flared glass but stick to the usual tulip shape. The design of a tapering tulip glass focuses the wine's aromas and concentrates them for the nose. In a flared glass they are lost. It's also important never to fill the glass more than a third full - this is usually the widest part of the rim. Stem or Tumbler. The stem of a glass is simply there for you to hold so the wine can be served at the correct temperature and not altered by your own body heat. Naturally, if you're not drinking a fine Chablis, a beaker-style glass can be just as pleasurable.
Shop Around. When decorating your dining room, never underestimate the value of a little footwork! Resist the urge to purchase everything all at once at a big box store; there are much better ways to get value for your money. Particularly in the case of furniture, second-hand stores, thrift shops, and garage sales are your greatest ally. Also remember that all the techniques you've used to update and improve your own furniture can work on yard sale finds as well!
The colours red and orange are thought to create a sense of excitement and encourage people's appetites. Earthy tones mixed with some reds or oranges can create a comforting environment and encourage people to linger and eat. You can also use earthy colours on the walls and complement it with reddish coloured chairs, table linens, and dining room decorations. The colours black and blue supposedly send off signals to not eat as much or watch what you eat. The colour blue is said to be a natural appetite suppressant, so when considering different dining room ideas blue may not be an ideal colour for the walls or décor. Mixing white into your dining room will encourage eating and snacking, which is why many restaurants use white for their linens and walls.
