Sharing and re-union with family members and friends over a home-cooked meal is one of life’s loveliest moments, and the way your dining room is decorated plays a big part in setting the dining mood. A warm colour palette that highlights soft, gentle colour is the key to creating a pleasant and attractive room. Warm colours advance, meaning they tend to draw walls closer together and create confidence, while cooler colours fade, giving the impression of a more expansive room.
For instant colour inspiration, look to nature. Think warm camels, dusty pinks, reds from beetroots and summer berries, burnt caramel and buttery yellow. Paint your ceiling two colours darker than your walls to help trick the eye into thinking the room is smaller than it is. If you’re a frequent entertainer, choose colours that will fill you with passion and confidence. After all, a happy host creates a joyful moment.
