      Remove existing arm-style chandeliers, and replace them with more simple fixtures. Look for clean lines and simple shapes like drum fixtures or globes. If the room has good light and doesn't need a chandelier, remove the fixture entirely. Select furniture that is not too formal and not too casual, which will allow you to dress up for events and dress down for everyday enjoyment.

    Charm

      Look for furniture that is charming and slightly worn. A large farm table can be mixed with a variety of chairs for a whimsical and casual look. Use folk-style artwork, or frame your children's art for the walls. Keep the room simple and functional without a lot of fussy details. Position a big vase of flowers in an unexpected casual container as the table centerpiece, and choose dinnerware that is fun and creative.
