Bold Dining Room Makeover

Cake & Confetti

When we remodeled our house last summer the dining room was the only space we didn’t touch.

It’s the first room you see when you walk in the front door and I wanted to give it more of a wow factor but was stumped on what to do.



Any ideas I had were shot down because we had so many other projects going on with the kitchen, bathrooms, and closets – not to mention a baby on the way!

Here we are about a year after wrapping up the big projects and I have the itch to finally give our dining room a much needed face lift.

The room itself is on the darker side so I was worried if I painted the whole room a bold shade it would feel very closed in.

After brainstorming and looking through inspiration photos, I decided to add a paneled chair rail.  This way I could have the colorful room I wanted but the white paneling would balance it out! I absolutely love how much interest it adds to the space.

We chose Clark+Kensington Artistic Blue (35C-7) for the upper part of the walls and Clark+Kensington Silent White (CW-C1) for the paneling and trim.

The finish for both colors is eggshell. I’ve always been a little hesitant about having white walls but the Clark+Kensington interior paint and primer is stain resistant and easy to clean.

I decided to rearrange the room a couple months ago to try and give it new life but didn’t want to move the light until I was really sure I liked the set up!
