Colorful Dining Rooms

Hello everyone and happy Friday!

Spring has finally arrived, well officially at least whether the weather wants to act like it or not, and with that comes the arrival of all sorts of new colors starting to brighten up the world.

Must Have Craft Tips & More!
Today, I am sharing some colorful dining room ideas with you to show you can brighten up your world too.

The farmhouse trend is still going strong and with that comes a lot of white and wood tones. Don’t get me wrong, I love this trend too, I actually miss the white walls we painted in our old house, but sometimes you just need a little color in your life.

Add a pop of color to your dining room!
Whether you like just a few accents of color or ALL. THE. COLOR., I am here to show you different ways you can inject color into your space.

I’ll start with the most obvious way to add color to your room and that is on the walls.

Paint is the easiest way to quickly update your space and add color.
How about painting a solid color and then adding a contrasting color on top with a random or geometric pattern?! Great visual!

Wallpaper is another great way to add color and pattern into your space. Pick a bold pattern but tone it down by placing it only on the top half of the walls and painting white under a chair rail. Throw in a rug with the same colors but in my more muted shades and the whole room comes together. I actually LOVE this room!

Hire a muralist to paint a scene onto one or more of your walls. You can also buy wallpaper that creates a mural.

Did you find a bold wallpaper you love but don’t want to commit to it in your entire space?! Just place it on one wall as an accent and paint the rest of your room white. Tie in some matching cushions and bring in wood tones to keep the room grounded and you are set!

Not ready for a lot of color but do want to incorporate some? Paint your walls a solid color and repeat that color in your rug then bring in brighter pops of color in the artwork and fabrics in the room.

Onto another flat surface that frequently gets ignored… the ceiling!

Ceilings are another great way to add color but they don’t have to be too crazy. Just paint it a solid color, whether neutral or a pop like a blue, and your space completely changes.

Willing to go a little further with your ceiling? Try adding a stencil or pattern wallpaper to your ceiling for a more dramatic effect. Furniture is such a great way to add a pop of color and if you get tired of it, just repaint it or buy a new piece!

Paint a large hutch or buffet to add color to your space. Tie that color in with fabric or other accessories to tie the room together.

If you have a colorful rug, pull colors out of your rug to paint your table, add fabric in the same hues, and even paint your walls or ceiling as well.

Do you LOVE color?! Go big and bold by using bring colors to paint your table and chairs. Tie in the colors to a large piece of artwork hanging on a more neutral color wall.

Want color but don’t want to commit to a large piece? Find a table with a colorful base or paint the base of your existing table in a color and leave the table top white or wood toned.

Don’t forget the about the accessories that can bring color into your space with pieces that you love.

Find a fun, colorful light fixture that is the star of your room.

Have a colorful collection of glassware or dishes? The dining room is the perfect location to display them in all their glory!

Collect artwork that have similar color tones and display them in your space as a large gallery wall.

This is also a beautiful space. Pick two or three colors you want to showcase in your space. Find artwork with those colors then tie in accessories and a rug in those colors to bring the whole space together.


There you have it! Do you love color or do you stick with a more neutral color palette?

After checking out all these beautiful dining rooms, I’m ready to bring more color into my space!

I love color, and I just couldn't---wouldn't live in an all white/gray existence. Love all your choices---and I hope we are turning a corner on the all-white sterile environments.
