Our dining room philosophy is that it should be like your best pair of jeans: comfortable, flattering, easy to dress up or dress down, and goes with everything. Dining rooms should be just as versatile – a place to gather your friends and family for everyday meals and for special occasions. Here's our room recipe for a dining area that is perfect for both the daily and the 'knock their socks off' meal, defined by a dramatic and dressy wall color for a major impact.
Navy walls give your room the dark drama it needs for a candlelit dinner party, and takes on sunlight and bright florals for a ladies' luncheon. Best of all, it's clean and simple enough that it's a perfect fit even when it's just you, a bowl of cereal (for dinner?) and your favorite book.
Blue is consistently everyone's favorite decorating color, and this rich variation is more interesting than most. Try to find a color that it doesn't look good with – seriously, everything goes with this navy.
The smartest way to add WOW is with Glidden paint. This gorgeous color gives strong coverage and beautiful results for under $25 a can.
