Coloring the Dining Room

We recently painted the wall between the kitchen and the dining room light gray (the same color as our living room). But lately, we’ve been looking at it and thinking that it just doesn’t look right.


To give you a better idea of what the dining room walls look like right now, look at the picture below:


As you can see, there’s three different colors: dark gray, gold, and light gray. It looks a bit disjointed, maybe?

We can’t decide whether to leave it as it is… or paint it another color.

Should we paint it dark gray? It would continue the dark gray that’s on our arches and the left wall.


Or should we paint it gold? So when we’re sitting in the living room, we’ll see a gold background framed by dark gray arches.


But look at our kitchen cabinets. They’re a goldish brown. Is that too much of a similarity? I really wish our cabinets were black.

Keep in mind, we plan to paint our kitchen the same light gray as in our living room. We might not stay with the color, but we want to at least have some color up in there for now (and it will be easier to clean the walls with paint than without).


Lol at the spilled gold paint on the floor in the last picture. I’m such a master photoshopper.

  1. Hey, I saw your question about paint sheen on YHL. I live in Texas as well and have the textured walls everywhere. I have found that for the most part it is best to go with flat on textured walls. And the lightest sheen possible in the kitchen and bath. I actually have flat in my kitchen as well, because the back splash really covers all the wall space that could get wet. Also, it is best to prime before changing the paint sheen on the walls (we know from experience 🙂
    Good luck! Love the bathroom mood board I saw on here.

Thanks so much for leaving a comment! You're awesome.
