This image fills us with inspiration for a colorful dining room. In the spirit of autumn, which for some of us is defined by the turning leaves and the introduction of all those warm shades of red and orange and yellow and brown, this dining room is appropriate. It’s fresh yet warm and the chairs just pop right out at you. Orange is a good color for a dining room as it has been associated with sociability and stimulation of appetite. Against a neutral backdrop, in this case white, the orange shades come alive. Also noteworthy is the choice of a light green rug. Certain shades of green are a close complementary color to orange, therefore it is a perfect partner to pair with orange. It counteracts it, thus creating a sense of balance in the room. The result is a lively, inviting space.
