We hear ‘color is king’ all the time, but there’s a lot to be said for a monochromatic palette. A dining room is a wonderful space to go neutral.
1. Choose Tans With Gray Undertones: “They’ll go with almost any accent color you want to add: navy, aqua, red, yellow, lime green, coral. If the tan color has a slight gold hue it can end up looking a little old and dated — not fresh. You want a neutral that plays well with other colors!”
2. Establish a Neutral Foundation: “A dining table and chairs can often be expensive compared with furniture for other rooms, so you’ll likely have them for many years to come. Think of dishes, glassware, napkins, placemats, and accessories like vases and centerpieces as ways to bring in pops of color you’re loving at the moment.”
3. Consider a Lighter Wood Finish for Your Table: “Dark woods often look dressier and more formal, while a lighter finish feels more relaxed and casual. Make the choices that are right for you and your family to create a room that you’ll really use.”
