    Red Dining Room Walls

    This dining room gets a bold and dramatic look while evoking a formal mood at the same time. The contrast of the white fireplace mantle, drapery, and chandelier lamp shades against the red walls creates drama and elegance. But for the real showstopper, take note of the gold ceiling, done in gold metallic paint – steal this idea if you want to add some WOW to your dining room.  What an idea! The gold ceiling paint is Martha Stewart Living Precious Metals paint in Kiwi Peel, available from Home Depot.  What do you think? Would you paint your ceiling gold? Leave a comment!

Comfortable upholstered chairs allow guests to sit back and relax between courses or when sipping an after dinner liqueur.
