It’s official, 2018 is here and it’s time to start re-decorating the house and looking for some changes to start the new year completely refreshed. Sometimes, the best idea is to find new colours. If you change your dining room color, it will look like you have a completely new and different room – it will transform your dining area completely. This is why today Modern Dining Tables will give you some inspirations on which colours to choose in order to give a new life to your dining room.
This Malibu house’s original owner, the actor Charles Bronson, used the dining room as his office. Designers Todd Nickey and Amy Kehoe painted the room Lambert’s Blue by Pratt & Lambert, closely matching the peacock hue Bronson used. Glossy white trim breaks up the expanse of blue, keeping it from overwhelming; the white also plays up the robust architectural details of the room, adding dimension to space.
Bright yellow walls — Benjamin Moore’s Inner Glow — and an even brighter citron table from HB Home brought the kitchen of a North Carolina house to life. Designer Lindsey Coral Harper turned wire side tables from ABC Carpet & Home into stools. Dark brown floors were transformed with a large geometric pattern, painted by Jay C. Lohmann.
Designer Ann Pyne of McMillen Inc. chose a yellow palette for this Southampton, New York house’s dining room. A Marc Bankowsky plaster ceiling fixture from Maison Gerard hangs above a bronze table by Philip and Kelvin Laverne.
Beyond a 10-foot archway (with original sliding pocket doors!), walls in Benjamin Moore’s Bainbridge Blue provide a striking backdrop for Michael Maher’s New Jersey dining room. There’s no shortage of contrast thanks to a living room painted Charlotte’s Locks by Farrow & Ball.
The intense green on the walls in this Olso, Norway house by designer Nicolette Horn is a dramatic counterpoint to a dining table set with handblown glass from Carl Rotter Glassware, silver goblets and tall green vases from William Yeoward Crystal.
In this Florida house, the dining room walls are painted mustard yellow “because yellow goes so well with candlelight,” Liza Pulitzer Calhoun says. Chairs are covered in Peruvian wedding blankets: “I love their ethnicity, the patterns, the colours — they do it all for me!” Shell chandeliers were custom made for the room. “I like them less for the light and more for the sound they make when the breeze hits them.”
