When we found this house, my mom and I started working on the color scheme. We did a lot of red in my last house and I wanted to move away from that. I picked out a few paint colors that I absolutely wanted to use and we decided that our color theme would be blue/green/navy with white accents.
I pulled this inspiration photo from Southern Living at the time as how I wanted my dining room to look. We searched for the right paint color. The article cites the color as “shadesof wheat” from Pantone.

We ended up with “Hint of Lime” from Valspar on the walls.
Some days, I think it’s cool to have a lime green dining room and other days I think – should we tone this down a little? 🙂
I loved the ikat fabric for the chairs and the palm prints I’ve had since my first condo. The bar cart is fun to style for the seasons and I love seeing my wedding china every time I walk into the room. My daughter eats and paints here so we haven’t put any furniture other than the Disney sort in the other corner.
I think the room could use another long table, perhaps sideboard- style and definitely some curtains. I’m thinking heavy white curtains with some green trim – greek key maybe – ala Erin Gates?

I’ve also been thinking about painting the chairs white. I’ve been eyeing an indoor/outdoor seagrass or neutral rug for the floor. Indoor/Outdoor because I do have a preschooler and a dog!
Here are a few options from Ballard that I like! I’m digging that zebra one but maybe I already have a lot going on in here?
There’s been a lot of design talk on Instagram and also on blogs that I follow about the 2017 Pantone color of the year – Greenery. I think my color is a bit more limey-yellow than Greenery but maybe this makes me on trend? That is rare for me with my traditional style :).
I think I’ll make some updates like the above and then decide once and for all about the color. What do you think?? 🙂
