Ah, winter. The season we forget we have dining rooms because we’re too busy eating chili on the couch, marathoning The Crown or cheering for our favorite basketball teams. To inspire you to dust off the table and open the curtains, here are some dining rooms with some of the prettiest paint colors we’ve seen.
Cozy blankets aside, there’s something to be said for a dining room. It’s rather civilized to gather face-to-face with friends or family and remind yourself there’s more to your house than the well-worn path between the sofa and the microwave.
Admittedly, most of us don’t have space quite as grand as this seafoam green confection, but what we do have is good enough to bring folks together. Even on the days when we’re only using our best paper plates.
Talk about a color guaranteed to warm a winter day. This rich Chinese red is a natural backdrop for the Chinoiserie chairs and jars.
If you’re considering a color change, a bold aqua will chase away the winter blues. This modern dining room lets the wall color be the focus, with a white sideboard and white-framed graphic art.
One of the things we love about this pink dining room is that it’s a lot of look for a not-so-big price. The bold colors of the walls and rug, the upcycled art and paper mache masks, and the whimsical paper lanterns are all affordable decorations that give this space one-of-a-kind style.
A vanilla hue gives this space a sunshiney glow, reflected the window-framed mirror.
One way to cozy up a dining room for winter? Bring the couch with you. A loveseat or dinette isn’t just trendy, it’s downright comfortable.
Dust off the dining room and drag yourself off the couch. We promise, it will be worth it. And with paint colors like these to inspire you, what do you have to lose? Happy noshing!
