In order to preserve the sound of any mode, you root it over a chord scheme that shares the same root and tonality. I know that makes NO sense, so case in hand - you want to use D Lydian and preserve its Lydian sound, try a chord scheme like Dmaj-Bm-Em-Amaj (obviously with appropriate extensions); in other words any chords from the key of D major.
