Red Walls in Dining Room

Dark Red Walls in Dining Room

Sounds bold and daring, doesn’t it? As the photograph testifies it is quite beautiful.

We were choosing colors for the whole house.  Given the furnishings, we could get away with painting the entire downstairs shades of a warm beige or gold color. But the client was willing to try something different. The location of the dining room was the perfect place to add some color. We chose Benjamin Moore 2084-20 Maple Leaf Red, a warm terra cotta that was just perfect. The room is inviting and looks great amidst all the lighter tones in the rooms that surround it. The house now has a focal point, a place where the client does lots of entertaining.
