I’ve had two red dining rooms in the last six years. I like red and I seem to be a little more daring in my choice of colors for the dining room. But recently, I’ve really wanted my house to be more calming. (Five kids all home from school for the summer. Go figure….) So, the upstairs bathroom got redecorated in blues and greens. All the red came out of my bedroom and was replaced with creams. And, the biggest change was my red dining room. I liked it, but never really loved it. It was just too much. I had a big room and felt like I needed to fill it up with knick knacks. Not anymore! I found a gorgeous blue, painted the walls, and took out all the stuff. Much better. You be the judge.
Now, I find my kids drifting towards the dining room to do homework. I walk through it just cuz it makes me smile and to get a whiff of my Lemon and Lavender Scentsy I turn on almost every day.
Now, if I could just convince my oldest daughter to let me repaint the red bathroom!
