Bring your dining room to life!
Hello, everyone! It's Mari here for Design Shuffle, a terrific online community where interior designers from around the world show their work and design lovers find interior design inspiration. As part of my job, I often get the opportunity to visit lovely blogs like Be Inspired Live Inspired to share some of the great interior designs I've discovered. I'm delighted to be here today. My guest post is about colorfully painted dining tables. Bringing a dining room to life with color is quick and easy—just add paint to the table. This idea works with just about any style from contemporary minimalism to elegant traditional and everything in between. Here are eight ideas to inspire your dining room adventures into color. Please enjoy! Here a traditional dining table gets a new lease on life with glossy pink paint. A beautiful flame patterned rug ties the entire room together. Turquoise with pops of pink is one of my favorite color duos. A dark and moody traditional room gets a shot of color with this contemporary "picnic" dining set and cool lighting fixture--an industrial-sized swing-arm floor lamp. Another painted picnic table, this one more traditional, with bench and chairs steals the show in this warehouse-like space—rustic outdoor style meets minimalism. I love the deep green metal of the pendant lights. Getting any revolutionary dining room decorating ideas yet? In this cozy dining space, a bright yellow table is surrounded by unexpected seating --an upholstered settee and round wire stools. I love the silver shade on that chain-hung pendant light. White painted bistro chairs surround this brilliant purple table—a cool use of color in this traditional dining space with a casual point of view. Here a simple table gets get dressed-up in lemony yellow, while each wooden chair is painted in a different pastel hue. Pale blue walls bring the room together with a charming cottage look. Did you notice the knobs and drawer pulls on the buffet are also chosen for their many colors? A turquoise table and matching chairs are joined by two others painted pretty pink in this tropical style dining space with a lush backyard view. A minimalist interior design gets the color treatment with neon pink on dining table legs. Those simple and surprising pops of color bring this room to life.
