Q: I just moved into a new apartment and I need help figuring out how to set up/decorate my dining room area. I clearly need to get something on the walls, but I am not sure about what size/configuration of wall art to go with. I am also toying with the idea of a smaller (maybe 4x6) area rug under the table. The carpet is beige and the walls are white--since I'm renting there is nothing I can do about that--and most of my other furniture is fairly neutral as well...

I'm finally at the stage where I can start to phase out some of my hand-me-down furnishings and incorporate new decor, so any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

PS - The square of paper on the wall in the photos was just to simulate a possible picture position :)
