Using Color to Create a Mood
We typically hear questions like, “I never use our formal dining room and I would like to start entertaining in that space. How can I use color to set a different mood in my dining room?”
Dining rooms are great to experiment with bold color! Many homes today feature open layouts, and owners want to create a cohesive flow throughout the home. The dining room is one place where you can feel free to throw out the usual playbook. Remember, you want to create a feeling in this space that makes you want to have that extra glass of wine. Be sure to consider your lighting when picking color for this room as you will be using it mostly after dark.
