If your dining room leaves something to be desired in the ambience department, look to color to set the mood of your room. We’ve found that some of the best color inspiration comes from the very foods we eat—they offer such a fresh, lively bouquet of tones to choose from. Whether you want your dining room to feel bold and beautiful or warm and cozy, you’re sure to find a hue that inspires you.
Brown is like a cup of hot cocoa—it makes a room feel warm and cozy. Dark and medium browns like chocolate and burnished chestnut feel formal and sophisticated, while light browns like oak and honey are more casual. The best way to bring in a little brown is with your dining furniture’s finish, and you can even choose curtains, cabinets
and framed artwork
that match to tie your room together.
