How to Choose the Best Color for Your Dining Room

As we discussed in our last blog, the type of mood you’re trying to set in your space should dictate color choice. While the living room is a place for comfort and relaxation, the dining room is where we gather with friends and family.

Keep reading, and learn how to perfectly accent your personal style with these paint colors for your dining room. It’ll be a pairing almost as perfect as the spaghetti and meatballs you’ll be serving there.

Using Color to Set the Mood

If you’re someone who likes a classic look, think walls with deeper tones. Take some inspiration from the kitchen and try chocolate, persimmon and aubergine hues, accented by shiny white woodwork. Just don’t have an appetite while you’re looking at swatches… On the other end of the spectrum, if you’re someone who prefers a more calming, relaxing space, keep it simple and airy. Beige gets a bad rap, but it’s a great backdrop for fun, bright accents that will serve as conversation starters at your next dinner party.  

Now, for a few of my personal favorites…

Truffle Brown

The richness of this color helps bring natural wood tones into the mix, without demanding they’re all uniform. It also works perfectly with lighter-toned ceilings and accents.

Midnight Sky

A deep blue, with hints of green and black, this color is extremely versatile. From formal to playful, it’s all about the accents here – which gives you a chance to show off your personal style without taking away from the color on your walls.

Citrus Yellow

This color is just about as bold as you’d have to be to bite straight into a lemon. It works wonderfully when paired with stark blacks and whites, and gives off a welcoming sense of warmth that captures the spirit of cooking for a crowd.
