Dining In Blues

The first step for this room was a coat of paint in CC-740 Labrador Blue by Benjamin Moore. It’s soft, sophisticated and sets off against the warm tones in the room from wood floors to gold toned accessories. Designer Meg Quasim at Design Your Joy is known for using colour in a dining room, to set the feeling for the room.

STYLEBOARD-DINING ROOM BLUE

“I love convincing people to paint a fun colour in their dining room, it’s not usually a room that is often used and can be fun. Don’t take it so seriously. If you aren’t sure where to start, try this tip…bring in a colour from your china or fancy dishes.”

-Meg Quasim
