Dining Room Ideas - A Bouquet of Color

E-mail to a Friend Add to Favorites Print

A single, fabulous item, such as the painting in this dining room, can be the color catalyst for room design. Discover how we developed our dining room colors to complement the painting and create a cohesive space

We kept the wall color a quiet ivory to avoid visual competition with the painting. Picking up one of the more substantial gold tones of the artwork and echoing it onto the ceiling helps to tie the dining room paint colors together.

Additional elements were added to bring our dining room ideas to soothing reality. Luxurious upholstered chairs and a soft, thick area rug in gentle neutral tones, add a comforting layer of elegance to the room. The deep, rich espresso-hued table works well as an anchoring color element while the sensuous silk curtains in quiet jade, complement the room's overall color scheme, finishing the look with polished perfection.

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Prime the surfaces with Fresh Start® Primer. Allow to dry.
  2. Roll on the ceiling color first. Allow to dry.
  3. Next, roll on the wall color. Allow to dry.
  4. Paint trim and allow to dry.
