In a sleek white space, pair a light hardwood table with black candles and candlesticks to complement.

We hunt for vases, bowls and candles that will match our dining room tables because we want contrast in our centerpieces.

Instead, why not hunt for things that complement it? On a black dining table, a black bowl can provide visual interest while retaining the sleek, elegant palette you've created.

You may even coordinate the color of the vase, bowl or candlesticks to the seats in your dining area if you want to go all out.

Make Room For New Flowers

Sure, rotating dining room decorations on a regular basis, or perhaps less regularly if your plants are extremely long-lasting, can be aggravating.

The sacrifice is worth it when the result is a bright, new centerpiece which looks and smells amazing.

Group Your Favorite Items Together

When you position items near to each other, they appear to be related, and following this rule will make creating imaginative centerpieces a breeze.

Simply group your decorations together closely enough, and the total will appear to be greater than the total of its parts.

This works best when the objects are comparable in size and color, but it also works well when the pieces are more diverse.

Try Some Asymmetry

Many of us set our dining room centerpieces in the middle.

After all, the term's name includes the word "center." However, experimenting around asymmetry could be just as entertaining.

Watch as your area is altered by placing your centerpiece off-center.

Just make sure it's far enough off-center to appear deliberate rather than unbalanced by accident.

Don't Limit Yourself To One Choice

If you don't want to select between flowers, bowls, and candlesticks, simply get all three.

You can arrange them in a cluster in the center of your table or scatter them throughout it. In either case, you'll have a dining table that is vibrant, textured, and distinctly yours.

Vases Can Be Mixed And Matched

Vases are a wonderful complement to any room in need of some decoration, and if you've a few lovely options to show off, do so all at once.

Mix and mix vases of various sizes and hues, and don't feel obligated to fill them all with plants.

If the vases have colors that are similar to those in your home's palette, they will blend in seamlessly.

If they don't, look for alternatives that will go with your dining room's decor.

Play Around With Colors

Choose a small pile of your favorite books or a few coffee table books to keep on hand.

You can stack these beside your centerpiece, arrange them beneath it, or swap the one you already have on display with them.

Books can add some unique character to your dining room table.

Take Advantage Of Fresh Fruit

Start with a leaner, smaller table runner which echoes the space's sleekest colors.

Combine that with some low-profile china and modern décor, and you've got yourself a surprisingly sleek set.

Make Your Palette Stick
