There are several colors that restaurants and individuals alike often use as their place setting color. Black and white, of course, are some of the more popular, simply because they look elegant from a distance and can be paired with just about any other color. A vast array of greens and blues are also very popular because they are soft and pleasing to the eye. There is nothing worse than sitting down for a meal and seeing your white plate ensconced in a bright yellow place setting. That can be downright unappetizing!
While blacks, whites, greens, and blues tend to be the most popular, any individual or restaurant owners should realize that just choosing a popular color is not the way to go. The room that these place settings are going to be set in is just as important. It is pivotal that these settings match their surroundings.
The first thing that you need to keep in mind is the lighting of the room. If it is a darker room, maybe brown or dark red, then you will want a darker place setting. Dark reds, blacks, and beiges work well with this kind of room. The place setting should blend in from a distance. If the room is brighter, or if there are a lot of windows letting in large amounts of light, then a brighter place setting is warranted.
The color of the table matters too. Bright white tables, such as the ones that might be found in a restaurant patio, require place settings that are also white or a lighter color. Even some lighter woods, like pine, require these place setting colors. Darker tables, such as ones made from walnut, require darker colors, such as reds and browns.
There are several popular colors for place settings, but you really need to be aware of the surroundings before you can be sure a color is right for you.
