Amy's "Global Cool" Dining Room
Location:Durham, North Carolina
Valspar's Field of Pines on the China Cabinet Benjamin Moore's Tapestry Beige on Walls Navy Blue Acrylic Paint on Curtains Accents of orange, red and green in accessories
This dining room was truly just a collection over time. The first colorful piece added was the china cabinet which started out as a full wood toned garage sale find. We chose the paint color based on a tone of green in our living room rug, in order to tie the two rooms together in a subtle way. Then came the DIY curtains, which are painted drop cloths and lots of colorful collected accessories some from our travels and others made at home like our DIY burlap pillows, complete with a green stripe down the center to match our cabinet. This is by far our favorite room in our home. It's eclectic, collected and very much a reflection of our personalities.
If you like a color, just go for it. In most cases it's just paint which is fairly inexpensive and can always be changed. Don't be afraid to try out something you think you'll love.
