Dining Room I used calmer more subtle colors for the areas we spend a lot of time in. I went vibrant and bold in the basement as it¹s a contained space and could handle such energetic contrasting colors. For the sunroom I painted the ceiling a sea glass blue to give the sense of a sky overhead and then picked out cushions to match for the chairs. For the dining room I decided to frame the view by painting the archway from the hallway a warm dark brown.
Dining Room 2 Good color tips: 1. When picking out colors also consider the tonal value in relation to which features you want to accentuate in your home. In my house I painted the hallway a warm dark brown. All the rooms that were off of the hallway I painted a lighter color to give the feeling of brightness as you entered into the rooms. 2. Pick a color from each room and carry it through to the next as an accent for a continuous sense of color.
Basement Favorite type and brand of paint: Chaste Fern, Pratt & Lambert
