Going Bold with Colorful Dining Rooms

Taking risks with color can produce some amazing results in design. Dining rooms offer a great opportunity to play with color. The set-up of a dining room is typically very simple: a table, chairs, and perhaps a buffet or cabinet. They are also typically separated from the rest of the house, so you can play around a little bit with style and make this space unique. These two facts make it easier to experiment with color in bold, unexpected ways.
