New England is not just home to clam chowder. It's also the home to the red dining room. If you live here, you may indeed have one.
I understand the desire for bold and drama in a dining room but that does have to = red. Come on people! I am so-so-so-so tired of red dining rooms.
For a bit of a change, even in a center entrance colonial (and a nice one at that), we decided to go blue.
We jazzed it up one step further. To highlight the gold rim on the china we painted the back of the built-in cabinet with gold paint. Check it out with the light turned on. Oooh, sparkly.
