Lighter and Brighter Dining Room Reveal

Last week I shared with you our lighter and brighter living room.  This week it's the dining room's turn.  The living room and dining room are an open floor plan with columns separating the two rooms, so they have to get the same wall color - both rooms are now painted Benjamin Moore Gray Mirage.
  
I actually didn't mind the color in the dining room, but I couldn't stand it anymore in the living room, and since the two rooms are attached they both got a makeover.
 The new wall color makes the dining room look huge.  The walls in the room literally look like they were pushed out two feet wider.
The centerpiece on the table is just temporary until I can come up with something a bit more interesting.
If you're really paying attention you can see that half of the photos are taken and night and half during the day.  Lol


Here's an close-up photo of the accessories on the server on the far side of the dining room.
Here's the other side of the room.  I have moved the table from the living room to in between the two head chairs in the bay window area.

I love this side with my plates hanging on the wall and one of my Lladro figurines under a cloche.

The only major change in this room is the paint.  
It's amazing what paint alone can do.

Can't wait to hear what you think.

It is truly beautiful, Judy! It makes all the furnishings look much more inviting, and I really like the wall color with the white wainscoting.

You're right, a lighter paint color makes a room so much larger, it seems. We painted our living room from a dark sage green to a color very close to your dining room color, it really made the room feel huge. Your entire makeover it beautiful, well done! -Dawn @ We Call It Junkin.com
