A Dining Room Fit for Entertaining - Dining Room Paint Colors

For DIY Blogger Stefanie Schiada of Brooklyn Limestone’s dining room, white was the right choice to give the ultimate blank canvas to let her décor shine.

Once the renovation was underway, the inevitable question of color came up. How to keep the palette warm without being restrictive? How best to get the shade right so it worked with the adjoining open spaces? 
I knew I’d be decorating in here for holidays so picking a bolder color was going to be limiting.

What to do? I bucked the advice I tend to give out about not painting walls white by using a palette of several different whites on the various surfaces to create more texture and visual interest. Doing that made white walls a lot less flat and perfect for my entertaining needs.
