Need the right red for my dining room.

Posted by BeccaK73 (My Page) on

My living room which runs into the dining room is in BM Brookline Beige and I'm looking for the right red for the dining room. I've tried BM Brick Red but I think it's too brownish. It will only be for chair rail up & below that will be white frame panels....and I'm not afraid of the color red. So any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Need the right red for my dining room.

I like light brown color and it is the best for not showing dirt. Light color shows the dirt too quickly. So I use dark color floor in my bedroom. I think red color is not bed color for dining. Thanks randita for giving some color sample..

RE: Need the right red for my dining room.

The main color of my house is a tanish/beige, its called Windsor Castle, a Behr color. Anyway, my dining room is painted in Huntingcoat Red which is a color by Ralph Lauren. I also have the white chair rail in my dining room. I love the color and red is a very good color for a dining room because it enhances the appetite!! Anyway, I would not use Ralph Lauren paint, you can color match it if you like it. I love it!

Good Luck

I vote for BM Raspberry Truffle...nice deep red. Don't know anything about undertones and whatnot, just know that it looks great. Lots of pictures of it online too.

Ralph Lauren Dressage Red
BM Moroccan Red
both are true reds.

RE: Need the right red for my dining room.

Last Summer, used Ralph Lauren Hunting Red on my son's room and it came out really well. We put it into the Devine paint also sold at our store.

I am linking the thread on reds as the prep advice I received was important:
