When a fabulous library shares space with a previously underused dining room, guests will be inspired to take a fresh look at their own underused spaces. Dining rooms and formal parlors can be lonely rooms, but they can come alive again when filled with amazing books.
Using bold paint colors and unexpected color combinations can embolden you to take risks and step out of your decorating comfort zone. Think of the exhilarating conversation that must take place in this dining room. As my mother always said, there are no decorating police, so don't handcuff yourself by making the same color and decor choices as your neighbors.
You can even make your own inspiration board with some colored electrical or duct tape on your wall, like in this photo.
