Go from casual to formal dining

Your dining room is ready for any occasion with a harmonious colour scheme.

If your dining room is the place for small family meals as well as special dinner parties, the colour scheme you choose needs to work for both. A neutral palette accented with one bright colour is an easy way to find comfort and elegance at the same time. Look to classic combinations such as charcoal and crisp white, slate grey and pale yellow, or cream with rich chocolate brown.

Add a touch of glamour into a casual space with a feature wall or panel painted a rich colour like burgundy, burnished gold or sage green. If you want your formal dining room to feel more relaxed, try using a crisp white on your ceiling and any other details, like pillars. For an instant update, paint your dining table or shelves a bright shade, like cheery teal blue or fuchsia pink.
