It's OK to be a bit Dramatic

a modern dining room with bold colours

The dining room isn’t a space you settle into for long periods of time, so it’s an opportunity to use a strong color that is both elegant and dramatic. Rich, warm reds, corals, golds and silvery grays make great color choices; they work with lighting to coax your space to glow. Wall paint with soft sheens, such as eggshell, satin or semi-gloss, give walls more luster and depth. Keep in mind that a higher gloss level can add to the drama, but the proper prep work is important because a higher sheen will highlight imperfections. For a more modern look, highlight the right wall color with trim painted a gloss white.
