Decorating a Dining Room Sideboard
Want to give your sideboard a stylish new look? Contributing decorating expert Elizabeth Mayhew shows you how it’s done.
Start With a Blank Canvas
Clear your wall and the top of the sideboard. If you’re rearranging your furniture, leave at least 3 feet between your piece and the table.
Hang a Mirror and Framed Photographs
Center the mirror vertically instead of horizontally for a more interesting arrangement. Using similar frames keeps the look cohesive.
Add a Lamp and Accessories
Combining items that range in scale and size helps achieve a balanced but not symmetrical arrangement.
Give a Southern Twist
For the finishing touch, bring your room to life with an arrangement of magnolia leaves in a footed bowl.
