Erin’s dining room suffered the same fate as most of its kind. Hardly used except for special evenings, it was a blah purgatory for clutter and unused stuff. It needed a style boost to get the family to use it more often.

And here’s what it looks like today. Erin took her time getting it fully decorated, and gathering things for the walls. She also used a lot of items that she already owned — like the table and rug — and swapped from other rooms in the house.

By far the most asked question from friends is “what’s the paint color?” and it’s Benjamin Moore’s Ben Formula in “Nocturnal Gray” eggshell finish— a deep ocean-y blue, gray, green color that shifts throughout the day.

It looks good Erin! Nice job….
