Just in time for Christmas: Colour Scheme Ideas for your Dining Room

If you’re hosting Christmas this year or you’ve invited a few friends and family over for a couple of Christmas Eve drinks, you don’t just want a beautifully decorated table.You’ll want to make sure your dining room décor is looking suitably stylish, fresh and welcoming. An easy way to perk up a tired dining room is with new wall colour. And since there’s still time to go until the big event, why not spend a weekend with a paintbrush to create a stunning and contrasting backdrop to showcase all your favourite festive decorations?

If you don’t know where to start, then why not check out our dining room colour scheme ideas…

Feature, Feature on the Wall…

In recent years, daring colour schemes, eye catching patterns, and luxurious textures have all added interest, style and personality into our homes.

First we saw the emergence of the popular ‘feature wall’ which saw one wall painted a bold colour to create a striking centre piece with very little effort, followed shortly by bold patterned wallpapers which added further dimension and texture.

These days, with a wide range of colours readily available and the promise of a colour exchange if you’re not so keen on your chosen hue from leading paint specialists you really can dare to be as bold, vivacious and unique as you like!

Bold and Beautiful Colours

This winter we’re in love with the mysterious look of dark, rich colours. It's perfect for those of you who are fans of statement colour, ideal for a cosy dining room, and just in time for a winter update!

Lavish emerald greens, rich dark browns and oranges, and dark blues are just some of our favourites; all of which create an opulent and decadent feel, especially when teamed with metallic vases and candelabras and finished with luxurious fabrics such as velvet and silk.

If you’re ready for a big change, you’re not afraid of a pop of colour and you want to introduce a colour scheme that will really get your guests talking, we might have just the look you’re after! Think vanilla white on your walls finished by a, wait for it, bright yellow centre piece on your chimney breast! We think it’s the perfect combination to pick you up on a grey, drizzly day and it’s one we’re sure your party guests will all compliment! Team it with cushions featuring geometric patterns in bright colours for a truly quirky and artistic feel.

Stylishly Grown-up Tones

Alternatively, why not experiment with a stylish mocha hue and coordinate with caramel and gold accessories for a rich and warming look just in time for the colder nights?

If you’ve ever toyed with the idea of slate grey on your walls, which has been very in-vogue recently, you might be tempted to opt for the new colour on the block – blue. Look out for deep shades such as midnight blue, navy blue and sapphire blue, all of which will create a sultry, ‘grown-up’ look with oodles of sophistication, meaning your living and dining room will be bang-on-trend just in time for the festive season!

So what are you waiting for? Step outside of the magnolia box and opt for an inspiring, decadent or happy-go-lucky colour to give your dining room a new lease of life. Get your paint brushes and dust sheets out and start painting!
