Here is the Dining Room “after” photo. The wall color is called Mount Pleasant Sage. The chandelier is cool from Ikea. I love it because it has electric lights plus candles. So if there is a power outage, you still have a chandelier. Notice the white French cabinet backdrop is painted Chainstitch. All of the colors are from the Low Country Palette from Sherwin Williams. I used a vintage Charleston print as my inspiration for the colors. I will try to get a picture of that later.
Notice the details to add interest under the window. I used picture frames and painted the area with semi-gloss Dover White by Sherwin Williams.
The walls are painted flat Netsuke by Sherwin Williams.
This is after fresh paint. The color is Comfort Gray by Sherwin Williams.
This is the before paint color. Blonde by Sherwin Williams.
You can have inexpensive crown molding by using the cheapo small molding that is normally in a room already. Just come down several inches and put up another piece of cheap trim. Then paint in a creamy or bright white depending on your taste. We used Dover White by Sherwin Williams. It is a great white that goes with anything.
