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
