1 Of 81 DIY PrintsLiven up your space by featuring pretty prints on rugs, window treatments, pillows nad more. Block print dhurrie rugs can command a pretty penny. To get the look for less, use a pretty wall stencil to apply a pattern to a large piece of artist canvas or drop cloth with a foam stencil brush. For an 8' by 10' rug, you'll need about a quart of standard interior paint in a satin finish. Wash stencil every other use to keep paint from clumping and elaving unwanted marks on the rug.

When deciding on the best paint color for your dining room, let your entertaining style be your guide. No matter how often or formally a dining room is used, we still want it to have a special occasion attitude. The right color can serve up an elegant mood as well as a strong design statement. Find inspiration in Benjamin Moore's Aura paints, formulated for deep, rich color that resists fading. previous next Designed for drama The dining room isn’t a space you settle into for long periods of time, so it’s an opportunity to use a strong color that is both elegant and dramatic. Rich, warm reds, corals, golds and silvery grays make great color choices; they work with lighting to coax your space to glow. Wall paint with soft sheens, such as eggshell, satin or semi-gloss, give walls more luster and depth. Keep in mind that a higher gloss level can add to the drama, but the proper prep work is important because a higher sheen will highlight imperfections. For a more modern look, highlight the right wall color with trim painted a gloss white. Find Your Inspiration Many elements can inspire you when it comes to your dining room, from the furniture that’s front and center, to the window treatments. This means the paint color you choose plays an important design role. For a pulled-together look, let wood tones or fabrics inspire a paint color choice. Be a Good Neighbor To create design flow in the main living areas of your home consider rooms that are adjacent to the dining room when picking a color. Though you don’t have to match the colors of the spaces exactly, your home may flow better visually if the colors relate. Pair warms with warms and cools with cools, and match existing room colors to Benjamin Moore paint swatches to find complementary colors.

Every home needs a go-to neutral wall color. Joanna loves using grays in her homes for the main living spaces. Some of her favorites are Sherwin Williams Mindful gray, Oyster Pearl, and Passive Gray. Repose Gray is one shade lighter than Mindful and would look fabulous for an open living space. A friend of mine just chose this color for her open living & dining room and she loves it! Grab a paint sample first though before painting every wall! :)

This Malibu house's original owner, the actor Charles Bronson, used the dining room as his office. Designers Todd Nickey and Amy Kehoe painted the room Lambert's Blue by Pratt & Lambert, closely matching the peacock hue Bronson used. Glossy white trim breaks up the expanse of blue, keeping it from overwhelming; the white also plays up the robust architectural details of the room, adding dimension to the space. The pattern of the curtain fabric — Jane Churchill's Rossini (now discontinued) — picks up the paint colors, along with the coppery tones of the Poul Henningsen Artichoke pendant light and the Nickey Kehoechairs.

Gray-green walls. Rich, historic and more sophisticated than either green or gray alone, gray-green shifts beautifully with the light. Use this hue in a dining room, kitchen or small sitting room, with off-white trim.
