The Dining Room {Good-bye Dark, Hello Bright!}

Although I do love the flower pot orange, the colour was just not working for me in our dining room. It always felt dark in there and we tend to spend quite a bit of time in our kitchen/dining area. Being a northern exposure it is darker to begin with, but I was getting to the point where I felt like the orange was sucking the life out of me. It was time to paint!

I chose Benjamin Moore's Edgecomb Grey. Some of my children had a hard time liking me switching to grey, but when I told them it was grey walls or cut down our big Crimson King maple, the boo-hooing suddenly stopped.

The last two photos almost make the walls look cold, but in real life, it's not cold at all. It's cozy and relaxing feeling. The printed sign is from our paint store where I purchase all my Benjamin Moore paint. The photos of the Amish and Mennonite people were taken when the Engineer's parents sold their farm. As much as I love those photos, they will never be available for sale because, well, truth is, I never got any of those folk's permission to take those photographs. Horrible, I know!


  1. I'm all about brightening up! We have gray skies far too often for me to want to paint anything gray, but it sure lightens up your dining room!

  2. Your kitchen and dining room looks bright and inviting. I like your new look -- the country farmhouse style.

  3. I like it and think you made an excellent choice in color.


Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I love to hear from my readers!
