Dining Room Ideas for the Holidays

It is not too late to do a mini makeover of your dining room before Thanksgiving. I love doing dining rooms in particular. I love the use of color in these spaces. I also love that they are a pop room in a home and should be just a little more bold than the rest of the house. Navy dining rooms have been trending for a while now and I still love that look. Wallpaper is back in again and it is the perfect room to use paper in. Lighting is key in a dining space and one should make sure there is enough light in this space. Sconces are fine, but really don't give off much light. In a smaller dining room a chandelier may be enough light. In larger rooms you may have to have additional sources of light.

Last minute painting ideas before the holidays

Nothing is more transformative than paint. It is one of the least expensive things you can do to a room that will give you the most impact. Take a look at your holiday photographs over the last couple of years. Does everything look exactly the same? Why don't you change it up a little this year before
the holidays and paint. Colors have changed a lot over the past few years and we are seeing much more blues, grays and dark charcoals. Trim paint is also getting much whiter. The jewel tones of burgundy, gold and green are looking dated. Why don't you consider a navy blue dining room. All shades of dark blue dining rooms are trending on popular social media site. Perhaps you want and accent wall in dark charcoal gray or a wall with the new trendy chalk board paint to reveal the holiday menu. We only have a few weeks left before it all begins. Give it a try, remember its only paint. For more Ideas on paint go to and then click Modern Design
