Dining room area, choosing colors.

January 13, 2014 in Design Dilemma
Hi, would love some opinions of what kind of colors or wallpaper you would choose for this smaller dining room, rest of the house doesn't have as bold wallpapers as this room would. We are thinking about adding the leafy paper. As you see in pics, the room is connected to stairs on the left side and i am not sure how we would continue the wallpaper, or what other colors i would combine. Opinions welcome, thanks so much!

Thanks! Yes i see what you mean about the medium green, white and black would also be complimentary, as well as brown i guess.

Well, I'm actually thinking just painting it a more neutral color. You have so many beautiful windows and arch on the stairs. I think you should let those stand out and shine. Right now all I see is wallpaper

I feel that a very dark colour (which a dining room like this can afford) would allow you to really put the windows in a good light (ahem); and also in the evening it would make it very cosy. A dark racing green could be stunning.

I see what you mean, however we do live in Sweden, so only 2 months of nice greenery outside those windows, rest of the year is grey, dark or white from the snow. But yes we were also thinking about some royal blue color, but that could be too dark.

Stairs, yes, under an awful ugly rug we found those oak stairs, i have to decide about main rooms before i decide about painting the stairs, so it's all coherent but we love this idea of wallpapering every other step.

But yes i also think stairs should be more neutral colors, otherwise might be too much.

like the stripes!!just a few pictures of the stripes incorperated in a room but with a very rich orange()!and a mix of watery bleus,and a much warmer bleu,becaused i also think a royal bleu would be too dark...

Lose the wallpaper everywhere. And design on wall on staircase. Paint all areas the same colors. rooms that flow together keep same color. You can paint anything you like. Not too dark. Have fun.
