Styled Buffet Side Boards in the Dining Room

My favorite part of decorating rooms is creating small vignettes. A vignette is any small, pleasing picture or view. It’s those compact moments in a room where you can display your most treasured items in a stylish format. For a dining space, using a buffet or sideboard to display decorative items is the perfect solution for adding personality to a room that can sometimes feel stuffy. We all have vases and books lying around. Why not combine those items with ceramics and dishes, perfect for a dining area.

Other items that work great on a buffet or sideboard is plants and flowers. Both of these details bring life and color. And can be paired with just about anything.

If you prefer neutral spaces, keep your items clean and color free, adding greenery and other natural elements. Glass and white ceramics are a stylish option for modern spaces.

Add personality by using items from travels and or your childhood. A shoehorn next to a vintage plate can create a trendy yet classic look. And don’t be afraid of adding items that don’t seem dining room material. As long as you combine it with items that fit the bill, you can use as much creativity as you want!
