Help with paint color for dining room
jesibel777October 13, 2013
Would love some input for a color for this room. Just put up curtains and now Feeling like the curtains look too dark next to white walls. Also feeling like the light fixture is lost in the walls...would like it to stand out more. Thoughts would be sooo appreciated!

First impression…your drapes are not lined, so stack them back father so the light doesn’t come through the fabric. That in itself makes it hard to choose a paint because the panels are not one color.

Match the lightest color in the drapes..is it a blue gray? Then how about a rug?

I think a silvery gray would tie into the drape color and also give enough contrast for your light fixture to stand out.

I'm not a designer, but have seen them suggest Ben Moore's Revere Pewter a lot!

For all that curtain width you need more substantial rods. Get a larger diameter & wider width rod. Inside edge of panel should just cover the window trim & glass should be free of fabric. Using strips of muslin tie the panels about a foot from the bottom to train them to hang straight. That should take about a week. Once you do that you will have more natural light. I agree the light looks lost with white walls. I just put up a similar light but may walls are BM abyss (very dark). Look for a medium gray/blue paint color. I agree with iamjudy you need a rug,

I think a pinkish beige wall color would look fab with your curtains and dining set. It will be just enough to let the chandelier stand out. Here's a pinkish/beige wall color.
