No, the painting is an 18th Century Dutch painting

I would like to know what color wall I could paint my dining room with gold drapes? I would like something that would make it look a little contemporary since the room is very traditional, with crystal chandelier, and dark wood furniture. I don't want reds. Thanks!

Thank you. Below to chair rail is taupe. Do you think a gray above that would work? Thanks for your help.

Sure--there really are lots of different shades of gray and taupe--both in warm or cool undertones. Keep them both warm or cool and it could look smashing.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Between Naps on the Porch added this to Houzz Tour: Mercer House
The dining room was decorated in bright colors derived from a set of antique china. Antiques and paintings were carefully chosen, and the chairs were custom designed by Brown Davis Interiors.
Orange Coral. This color can be best described as a vivid, fruity orange. It has strong red undertones, and it makes an amazing and unforgettable accent color. Paint pick: Daring 6879 by Sherwin Williams More: How to Find the Right Gray How to Find the Right Blue How to Find the Right White How to Find the Right Green How to Find the Right Yellow
Here is one way to go about it: boldly. If you want a look that will delight and surprise visitors, transform your ceiling into a glowing orange accent and complement it with yellow drapery. Orange-backed chairs pull the color back down to the floor for visual balance while white walls create a neutral backdrop so the strength of the two shades can stand as focal points without overwhelming the room.
If you have a more traditionally styled home, try taking a bit of a risk with tangerine accents. The bright coffered ceiling and dining chair backs take this dining room to the next level.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Hit a Bold Color Balance
It’s not uncommon these days to see ceilings that really have punch. Help the ceiling’s unexpected aesthetic feel part of the space by applying the color to the room’s furnishings.
Samantha Schoech added this to Create a Stir With Paint
This daring orange ceiling benefits from great lighting and a surprising color choice. Everything about this room is made better by this ceiling.

Radial Balance - This is an example of radial balance because again, everything on and around the table is symmetrical. The chandelier, the chairs, the cutout roof, even the cabinets on either side of the table are arranged so they are symmetrical with each other, as well as the picture and mirror above them. It creates a very organized feel, but still very bright and active and interesting.
