Having trouble figuring out the best colors for a dining room?

Forget about trends for a moment and consider this idea: The best colors for a dining room are colors you like. That simple!

While others are picking out the perfect shades of gray, beige, greige and white wall colors (plus a coordinating neutral palette for furniture, et al), the options are rather more interesting for the adventurous homeowner who embraces color.

If your aesthetic demands colorful spaces, but you’re not sure where to go with this instinct, refer back to the styling decisions made by bold interior designers of yore. As you can see from the retro inspiration below, they were fearless!

We’re not suggesting you necessarily go all in on these decidedly vintage combos of color and patterns, but you might find inspiration here just waiting for your contemporary interpretation. 

You’re calling the shots in your own home! Have fun with your space as you decide exactly what you think are the best colors for a dining room. -BRB
