Color Feast: When to Use Black in the Dining Room

Jennifer Ott Design added this to Color Feast: When to Use Black in the Dining Room
Every paint company has a handful of blacks to choose from. Some are cooler, with hints of blue or green, while others are warmer and head toward brownish black. You can really see these subtle differences when you view the color chips side by side. Greenish and brownish blacks can sometimes look a bit murky to me, so I like to stick to blacks that have some blue or white in them. Black paint picks for dining rooms (from left to right):1.

Here's how to do a full-height black painted wall. This space gets plenty of natural light, which combines with the abundance of white to create an open and airy feel despite the large black accent wall. Black absorbs light and tends to look flat, so by pairing it with glossy finishes, you'll get some much-needed sparkle.

I love the first idea with black upper walls and white below the chair rail. Can maybe even use this as an office coloration.
