I wanted something dark and moody; the room and kitchen off of it are inspired by the sea, vintage seascapes. I wanted the color in the dining room to be more sophisticated, and play off of those colors well, almost like the sky during a storm at sea.
Colors used in my room:
Benjamin Moore Kendall Charcoal
Tips for using color successfully:
Color needs to flow from room to room in a home, and play nicely with the other colors in a space. This color allows my vintage seascapes to pop, and lets the warm wood tones also stand out.
