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!
A bright and cheery family room comes alive with the color of sunshine on the walls. This golden tone is a wonderful way to warm up a room, and works especially well when combined with browns and wood tones as seen here with the brown leather sofa, mahogany cocktail table, cherry built in cabinets and mantel. Notice, however, that the trim on the window is white, which also works extremely well with this golden wall color – and proves that all the built-in woodwork and trim in the house does not have to match.
