Often our dining rooms are the least used rooms of our homes. Reserved for formal occasions, these rooms often feel stuffy. Creating a dynamic dining room through color and pattern will make you want to eat more meals in the dining room. Add color through linens and curtains if you aren't ready to commit to new wall color or upholstery. Simple additions can make a big impact. Who knows, you may even be inspired to have a dinner party. Enjoy!

Black, white and yellow create a lively palette for this dining room. Dynamic yellow and white curtains add pattern to the space. And look at the matching ceiling light-- definitely a nice added touch to the space.

Bold pops of color make this traditional formal dining room dynamic. Hot pink dining chairs and the blue vase are opposing colors on the color wheel. This contrast creates a dynamic energy.

Complementary colors of orange and green contrast nicely in this San Francisco dining room. The lively hand-painted mural on the wall precludes the need for artwork. What better light fixture for this lovely space than a crystal chandelier?

Bright pink floral upholstery on the dining chairs adds dynamic energy to this pale blue dining room. The brighter pink of the chairs stands out against the pale walls.
