Coastal Blue Dining Room

Coastal Blue Dining Room Design Ideas

Coastal blue is like a great pair of jeans – the right shade can look fabulous when dressed up or down.  I was trying to recall if I’ve ever had  a blue dining room and I haven’t.  After perusing numerous blue dining rooms, I like the idea and gravitate towards the white or light grey walls with blue chairs and accents.

Some people believe you shouldn’t paint your dining room blue because it makes food less appetizing. No wonder blue dining rooms are the exception rather than the rule: Beiges, reds and whites are far more popular choices for our eating areas. But blue can be a gorgeous choice for the dining room. I say forget the color theories!  ~ Apartment Therapy

    Hello there! I could have sworn I’ve visited this
    web site before but after going through many of the

    and checking back frequently!

    Love the blues! Calm, Serene, Relaxing. I my old house, I had painted my master bedroom in 3 different shades of blue- light, deep dark, and more a neutral blue all with white trim work, with natural canvas coloring as well. Oh, I miss that room!

    I love blue dining rooms. I’ve heard the color/appetite theories, but I still love blue dining rooms regardless. I intended to choose which picture I liked best, but I can’t. They are all so striking that I just can’t decide. I almost did something like the dining room in the fourth picture for our house in Chicago, but then we ended up selling and moving to an island in Carolina, so I never did. Now, I lean a little more toward some of the examples with lighter blue colors.

    Blue is a gorgeous color for dining. Remember the old blue plate special? All dishes were done in a blue pattern because it has been proven everything looks better on blue.Try it sometime.Kathryn
