To decorate my dining room this year for the holidays, I moved a pair of Chinoiserie lanterns to the console to give them more attention and added an ombre Christmas tree. The tree starts silver and then goes to gray and then black. I think it is so sophisticated. I left it unlit and undecorated to really show off its ombre. For a tree skirt I used some African mudcloth I had. The black and white works perfectly.
