'Go for some supersized serving dishes so that everyone can tuck in,' suggests Thomasina Miers, Masterchef winner 2005 and author of Cook (Collins, £16.99). 'Bountiful plates and bowls are becoming an absolute must for people cooking at home'. Choose porcelain serveware that can go straight from oven to tabletop. Share and share alike. The popularity of foods from around the world means meals are far less likely to be brought ready-plated to the table, as in many countries the act of sharing with your fellow diners is integral to a meal. Instead large platters and bowls allow everyone to help themselves, a trend that translates well into contemporary social settings. 'Sharing is key in Chinese and oriental cooking, so I usually make an array of small dishes that allow guests to sample a little of everything,' says Ching-He Huang, author of China Modern (Kyle Cathie, £14.99). 'It's a lot less formal, especially when you have groups of friends that are new to each other.
Dining room decorating has come a very long way from their origins and now, as all other decorating ideas. Decorating is a personal reflection of each person and, in the frenetic lives of the 21st century, we don't have time to sit all evening in subdued elegance of a red flocked dining room. These days, anything goes and, as long as it works for you, your dining room decorating ideas should prove to be a great success.
Be Selective. Remember that to achieve a great new look in your dining room, you don't necessarily have to change out all of your furniture. Often, just a few striking new pieces are enough to give the space a new atmosphere. If you're only investing in a few new items, it's worth it to shell out a little extra money for something really high quality. You'll save on replacement and redecorating costs down the line. Don't be afraid to mix various styles to come up with something truly unique. If most of your furniture is cottage vintage, a few well-placed industrial design elements can create a strikingly dramatic look through juxtaposition.
