When designing a dining room around the Sherbrook, try creating contrast. The dark wood stands out so well when placed in the midst of flesh-toned walls and delicate home décor, like a statuesque floor lamp, artwork displaying pretty pink-and-purple potted flowers and a bubbly area rug.
Thanks to the rich, cherry veneers and creamy painted finish, you could spin the color wheel and no matter what you landed on, it would look great with this collection. For a room that feels relaxing and restful, look to warm, buttery yellows and use them throughout the room. This clean palette will set the stage for you to display your colorful collectibles or dinnerware.
To create a vivid look in this dining room, yellow-green was used for the wall color, while the furniture was kept clean-lined and contemporary with a dark brown finish that won't draw too much attention from the other hues you choose. The suitcases, apples, floral wall art and pottery help add lighter tints, while the reeds, clock and leaf-patterned artwork work in the darker shades of the analogous color scheme.
Royce's beautiful burnished finish will work with wall colors ranging from cool and refreshing to warm and cozy. If warm and cozy is your goal, turn your dining room into an inviting and rustic gathering spot with golden walls, an earthen, trunk-inspired accent chest and a rug reminiscent of the Southwest. Then, finish your look with a still life of fruit.
If you want Hadley's dark chocolate finish to really pop, consider painting your walls a pale smoky gray. The blue undertone of a hue like this is a perfect contrast to this set's warm finish. You can pick up on that hint of blue by using this shade in your rug and artwork.
The best kinds of dining rooms often offer something unexpected--like traditional and contemporary styles mixed together. If you love color, the Belmont collection will work well in contrast. To highlight that old-world feel, paint your walls mustard gold, add traditional wall art and opt for a coordinating area rug.
The great thing about clean-lined furniture is that it makes itself at home in nearly any setting, from monochromatic and modern to rich and colorful. Plus, the combination of white and brown lends itself to nearly limitless possibilities. So if Enzo's retro styling is what attracted you to the group, go monochromatic with white walls and a 1960s inspired shag rug.
There are so many reasons to fall for French-inspired furniture, and the Versailles collection does a fabulous job of demonstrating them all. If you're inspired by this set's French influences, pair it with ornate details and gold accents to create a grand look. French blue walls, a tiered chandelier and a traditional rug in muted hues, Versailles inspired colors will set the tone for a beautiful space.
Don't be afraid to mix things up a little when decorating with the Batavia collection--it's styled perfectly for both contemporary and transitional settings. For a modern look, start with a cool color for your walls like muted teal. It'll look amazing alongside Batavia's dark mocha finish. Then, think contemporary when it comes to your wall art and area rug.
For a transitional approach with Kenan, choose a soft wall color, like mint green, and then opt for white, neutral and mint hues for the rest of your room. They'll provide just enough contrast to help your furniture stand out. And don't be afraid to mix styles--that's what transitional design is all about!
Contemporary-inspired pieces with just a few rustic touches give have incredibly wide appeal, and lately, they seem to be everywhere you look. The Kona collection exemplifies this awesome trend! If you want your furniture to command the most attention in your room, layer a sisal-style rug underneath and pair it with walls in the same neutral hue. Then add richness and texture with floor length, dark-chocolate curtains.
Graceful, tasteful and downright gorgeous, the Vintage collection is going to instantly transform your dining room! We love the idea of pairing this set with a golden ochre wall color. This hue is warm, inviting and just plain yummy in a dining room! A contemporary rug in rusty red or clay hues will work wonderfully in this setting.
A set like the Napolean collection begs for a dining room that is full of drama. A color that pulls from the gorgeous upholstery, like deep olive green, is a perfect choice for a wall color. You can also subtly work your room's colors in with your area rug and artwork.
The Aspen collection captures the best of casual dining! If you're looking for a bigger splash of color, the dining room is the perfect spot to try a bold wall! Purple has a rich feel, and it will beautifully contrast Aspen's warm, amber finish. A neutral area rug with an enlarged abstract pattern will add fun flair!
