dramatic dining rooms


Oh, I know I was going to keep this house light and monochromatic throughout, but I just came across this photo (HouseBeautiful.com) and I am LOVING this new paint color from Benjamin Moore!  It is so pretty.  I also love the fact that it is in a matte finish.  I do not like sheen or shiny finishes on walls anywhere.  This is from BM's new Aura collection of paints and is called Caponata #af650.  I want to paint it somewhere now!
Unfortunately I think it would be too much in my dining room.  I don't have a picture of my DR downloaded on this computer, but will try to post one soon so you can see what I mean.  I have a large expanse of wall to cover.  Then again, maybe this would be an intersting idea and a way to do something with all of that wall.  Hmmm....   ???

I also love this Peony pink paint.  This raspberry color would be fun in little Petunia's bedroom or maybe the playroom!

i love playing with color- however- pinks are tough...too much of one tint and it throws your room into peptobismol syndrome...in my old house, i had a courtyard and idecorated it VERY bahamian...my dining room was the best room of all...

They are both pretty colors. I think the pink would look so cute in a playroom or girl's bedroom.

I love color! Great choices.

Those are great colors. I prefer some sort of semi-gloss or gloss for the sole reason that it's easier to clean off/wipe down if/when walls get dirty.
