Simple centerpieces, like glass candleholders and flower arrangements, can be dressed up with layers of cypress tree cuttings. There's no artful arrangement needed; the less perfect the greenery appears, the more natural it looks.
A kitchen island topped with a gleaming white countertop sits near an adjacent dining room. The dining room has a different style personality than the modern kitchen thanks to glam touches like a crystal chandelier, glass candleholders and oversized art.

Designers Lance Jackson and David Ecton with Parker Kennedy Living took the homeowner's existing coffee table, but to get this look, you can take a coffee table that you own or find a rectangle-shaped table at a yard sale or consignment shop, then just repaint the outer edge in gold. They added new accessories, such as these heavy leaded glass candleholders.
Enjoy dinner and a view in the dining room of the 2011 HGTV Green Home. This elegant space features floor-to-ceiling windows with soft beige pull-down Roman shades to help stage the mood. Fun, contemporary yellow and black high-back armchairs surround a large wood dining table and are perfectly paired with glass candleholders and a natural centerpiece that adds color and height.
Eclectic Living Room with Fireplace and Cocktail Table
Even when reusing existing items, such as this cocktail table and antique rug, you can decorate the table in a way that modernizes the look. As this table shows, look for a pair of heavy leaded glass candleholders, which designers Lance Jackson and David Ecton with Parker Kennedy Living say you can find affordably priced at local vintage stores or on websites such as Etsy.com. Then add in a piece of cut glass (this one is high-end turquoise, but you can find others on a lower end) to contrast with the glass candlestick holders. The books were already in their homeowner's collection.
A small serving tray is used on a brown coffee table to display a piece of coral which is covered by a glass dome, a small white ceramic vase, and two white candleholders. Two books and a white rock also decorate the table.
On this wall, designers used some of the homeowner's keepsakes (including vintage candleholders) as the starting point for a pretty display. The salvaged shelf on the radiator was sanded, clear coated, then embellished with gold foil. The little glass bottles on top were dipped in white paint, the embellished with gold foil as well.
Use lanterns (with their glass panels removed) and hanging candleholders to show off vining plants, suggests floral designer Angela Darrah. This 'Neon Pothos' Epipremnum aureum thrives in low light conditions and pops against the red accent wall. When hanging plants, weight is a concern, so Darrah suggests using a decorative moss sheet to disguise a plain plastic container.
