Dining Room Makeover

I have been thinking about vamping up the dining room with a new wall color for a while, and this weekend I put in the time and labor to make it a reality. As you can see from the before picture, the walls were a very generic pale yellow/beige, and the color also affected my photos by giving them an even more yellow cast than just the lighting and camera alone. I knew I wanted to go for a warmer shade of gray, and I spent a good amount of time flipping through swatches and bought a few paint samples before deciding on the final color. It is Benjamin Moore’s Stormy Monday, and it has a hint of purple in it, so depending on the lighting it can appear lavender. I’m really pleased with how it turned out; it’s so much bolder and more visually interesting, and it still complements the colors in adjoining rooms.
