Decorating a dining room offers a great opportunity to do something a little different from the rest of your decor. Giving it its own personality will create more of an experience when you dine and entertain in it. One simple but effective way to make your dining room unique is to go dark.
Dark dining rooms have an elegant, dramatic appeal about them that suits the mood of the space. It’s the perfect look for intimate dinner parties. You can go all dark or take advantage of contrast, such as with black and white, for an even more dramatic look.
