Lighter Paint Color Suggestions for Dining Room?

Good Questions

Pin it button big

Q: I am renting a duplex and these were the paint colors when I moved in. I'm desperately wanting to paint the dining room, but I don't know what color would flow well with the others since its an open floorplan. We just moved in so its a mess and some of the furniture will be changing. I just want a lighter color in the dining room, as it is insanely dark and feels outdated.

There is a bedroom off of the dining room which is a lighter tan than the living room. The room is south facing and gets pretty good light. Any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated!
