Wow, what a dining room – Wall colour in two part design!
How to create a new sense of space with two-tone accents.
Since the Middle Ages, dining rooms have offered space for socializing, get-togethers and dining together. A beautiful and cosy room for daily meals becomes the centre of lively conversation and culinary delights. But which colours are suitable for the dining room and which decoration ideas do you use to create the perfect feel-good atmosphere for your guests? Using a very small room as an example, we will show you which tips and furnishing ideas you can use to create an individual look by skilfully combining two matching wall colours.
Warm wall colours such as red, yellow and orange are said to have an appetising effect. They are classically perfect for rooms where people eat. As red is also considered to promote aggression in the teachings of Feng Shui, it should always be combined with neutralising colours such as white, cream or beige to ensure a harmonising balance. If you want to lose weight, cool tones such as blue, green or violet are recommended. These are intended to curb your appetite. Grey in all its shades is rather unsuitable for a dining room, as the colour grey is said to completely spoil your appetite. However, choosing the right wall colour for your dining room – especially in open spaces – always depends on the colour harmony with the surrounding rooms: make sure that the colours you choose match the wall design in your living room or kitchen.
