Dining room paint color with a bright blue oriental rug
We're starting to get settled into our 100 year old Victorian home. Picking interior paint colors is daunting! The dining room has been a particular challenge because I'm trying to choose a wall color that coordinates with a bright blue oriental rug.
Beige would be the easy choice, but I think I'd prefer some color since the adjoining living room will be neutral. I'm also looking for a wall color that will give a more relaxed or modern feel to our traditional furnishings (which are an accumulation of old family furniture).
I've made several trips to Sherwin Williams and have painted sample colors all over my house, yet I'm still not in love with anything. I'm hoping you all can help!
Here is a photo of the rug in our old house. I'll post pictures of the new dining room shortly.
