I am looking for a way to spice up the hardwood installation we are doing in our dining room. We are using wide planks. Any idea how to use angling or another method to create a pattern, or some sort of unique arrangement?

You should do some research on herringbone patterns. They are lots of options available.

I'll look into those. Do they have premade ones that you can just lay in and cut the surrounding hardwood to fit?

Many upper-end wood product lines have premade inserts and borders that fit in with the floring product you select. A website that shows you some of the styles availiabe is http://www.premierinlays.com

You may want to create a border around the room with a different color of wood.

Herringbone patterns are beautiful but difficult to self-install. I would consult with a professional.
