A large or fussy chandelier could take up too much visual room. Pick a chandelier that has simple lines and a small profile. That will create the effect of making your space appear larger. And that is how we come full circle to the scale. Remember it is all about scale.
Contemporary dishes often feature a limited number of components, aiming to extract as much flavor as possible out of each ingredient. On the plate, presentation is clean and simple—much like contemporary dining furniture. With this style, less is more. A sleek, streamlined table and minimalistic accessories are a great foundation for your modern space.
A limited color palette may be a good place to start. It is easier to work with a lighter or neutral color palette as it can make your room look airier. Contrasting or complementary colors should only be used as accents. Read about The Case for Neutral Colors to see how neutrals can help. But then, while this is the safe approach, you might end up with a safe space that lacks excitement. If you are looking for a more adventurous look, then, by all means, go all out for a bold color scheme. That could work just as well. The simple trick, in either case, is not to get too fussy and keep to the fewest colors possible.
In the dining room, I married the traditional and modern with a new barn-board table and several white swivel chairs. In addition to a ceiling full of recessed lights, I also put up a conventional chandelier with a contemporary twist that helps define the dining room.
