Gold and Black give a feeling os sophistication while remaining usable in many color themes. If you have a bright blue dining room or even a light tan hue on your wall, this should fit well. By mixing and matching plates that are plain and with different patterns like the image above is also a way to add variety while staying sleek.http://www.goodhousekeeping.com/product-reviews/cooking-tools/break-resistant-dinnerware-reviews/break-resistant-dinnerware
For those that want vibrancy and color, you can still find a way to have a stylish dining set. Stick with two to three colors, preferably those on opposite ends of the color wheel (like the above blue and orange). From there, choose one to use as a solid and the other can be used in a pattern. Try to have both colors in the pattern. Like the above image, play on shapes as well to create flair.
Find a relaxed pattern with subtle colors. This will exude a warm, friendly atmosphere while giving off some elegance as well. They can be used for small gatherings or for situations where you want all guests, important and loved ones, to feel at ease and ready to eat.
