A good place to begin is with paint color. You may want to use a monochromatic paint color. So if you are using, for instance, the color tan, you would have two or three shades of tan that would go together and look very nice. If you want a little more color, you can combine different colors, but just make sure they are the same intensity.
For even more color, use blues and greens of equal intensity. They have a soothing effect, and you can get away with using a little more color by using blues and greens even in a small room. If you want a very soothing color in a small dining room, use pale blue. This is a color that you can live with for a long time, and I really don't think you will get tired of it.
Also, a table with drop leaves is excellent to use in a small dining room because the leaves are right there and are not stored in a closet in another room. You can just put the drop leaf down when you want the table smaller and then put it up very easily when you want more places at the table.
