Move away from boring beige walls – brilliant, luxurious colors are here to enhance the boring dining room’s walls. As the ultimate space for mixing luxury holidays and sweet family dinners, your dining room needs to provide the perfect balance between comfort and smoothness. An unexpected layer of color online on the ceiling or a clean white spark on the room’s trim can be the right thing to prepare your room for the next dinner party. Apart from that, you don’t want your perfect venue setting to steal the show. Take notes (or two!) From this world-famous designer, and refresh your dining room with one of the amazing paint colors and color schemes.
1. The Blue-and-Yellow Dining Room
Inspired by the color-decorating drums used by members of Williamsburg Fife and Drum Corps, designer Anthony Baratta soaked this Georgian dining room in a blue and yellow palette. The rug was from Capel Rugs; plates and glasses from Park Designs.
The walls are painted in Damask Gold and Lafayette Blue, both of Benjamin Moore’s Williamsburg collections.
2. The Sunny Dining Room
Bright yellow walls infuse joy into the dining room designed by Katie Ridder. Rattan chairs from Janus et Cie and pineapple leg tables increasingly support the playful spirit of the Long Island home. The painted floor was inspired by Moroccan checkered tile patterns. The curtains came from Harbinger, and the chandelier from Avery & Dash.
3. The Icy Dining Room
Soft blues give a relaxed feeling to the opening dining room in this breezy Bahamian home designed by Miles Redd. The center of the ship is a funny nod to the ship that passes in the bay. Osbourne & Little Fabric covers the Design Within Reach chair at the table. The painted grass wall is from Phillip Jeffries.
4. The Neutral Dining Room
In the dining room of this Provence farmhouse, collections of antique paintings and delftware and pottery faience act as the focal point of the space in part because of their neutral backgrounds. Designer Susan Bednar Long paired French dining chairs in a lighter color with a Swedish blue check from Chelsea Textiles. Sconces come from Jamb.
5. The Sage Dining Room
The wise walls of Venice plastered from the dining room designed by Susan Zises Green pay homage to the lush Palm Beach gardens at home. Arm chairs, in Christopher Hyland’s fabric, and side chairs, in velvet Clarence House, are antiques. The ceiling of the dining room in the 1920s was hand painted.
6. The Charcoal Dining Room
Planner and decorator Antony Todd took a more or less approach to decorating the dining room of his apartment in Manhattan for a vacation. To compensate for the deep color walls of the charcoal, Todd wore a white oak table made especially with a load of vermeil and a tumbler filled with feathers. The flower arrangement hanging on the window was made of duck and bird feathers.
The color of the wall paint is Dragon’s Breath by Benjamin Moore.
7. The Forest Green Dining Room
Aubergine silk curtains, velvety walls, and dramatic Baltic chandeliers create a sultry atmosphere created for a lavish dinner party at a Pennsylvania house designed by Richard Keith Langham. The green ceiling of the forest compliments the green color of the Gracie hydrangea wallpaper. The curtains are made of Schumacher silk with bullion Passementerie edges.
The color of the ceiling paint is Hamlet by Benjamin Moore.
8. The Mural Dining Room
Decorated with gazebos, passion flowers and vines, a decorative mural, hand-painted by Chuck Fischer, adds a strange touch to the reception hall at Lou Marotta’s Florida home. Antique French chairs and 1930s tables decorated with marble Noir Saint Laurent. The 19th-century golden aura of Blackman Cruz served as the golden background for the 1980s statue of Jonson Cornell.
For similar pure white walls, try All White by Farrow & Ball.
9. The Tawny Dining Room
Rich camel walls and pure white decoration framing Enoc Perez’s oil paintings in the New York dining room designed by Daniel Romualdez. A special dining room table combines a Gracie boss with a base by Wainlands. Frances Elkins’s antique chair came from Liz O’Brien, and a 1970s French sconce was found at Galerie Lafon-Vosseler.
The color of the trim paint is Dove White by Benjamin Moore.
10. The Peaches and Green Dining Room
At the home of Atlanta designer, Danielle Rollins, apricot ceilings offer mirror-like qualities to the dining room and display light on the moss green walls. Damask Lee Jofa covered antique Italian chairs. Tablecloths and benches are Samuel & Sons trims in Oscar de la Renta for Lee Jofa fabrics.
The color of the wall paint is Ball Green by Farrow & Ball.
