Choosing new paint color for dining rm/library
The painter is coming to do some work in DS' room, and while he's here I'm going to have him do the dining room, which is more of a library/gathering spot. I'm usually good with this, but I just can't decide on a color. It's a small room, maybe 13' x 14', with a lot of dark oak furniture and not much other color. We took up the rug because we suspected our dog was having an allergic reaction to it, so we aren't working around a rug. The seating is brown leather. Two chairs have upholstered seats that are a simple geometric pattern in cream and green but there is so little green, it's a nonissue.
I'm going to post pics of the other colors in the surrounding rooms. Colors throughout the first floor are variations of red/rust, gold, green. A few shots of blue.
Currently the DR is this color, which I have liked but am ready for a change to perhaps something a bit lighter and a little bit cooler...but that's the tricky part because all the other colors throughout the first floor are warm. So, maybe not cooler but a bit lighter and brighter.
