Few things make an instant statement the way a pretty wallpaper does! If a wallpaper seems like a tad bit too much you can experiment with different wall paint colours for your dining room. Neutrals like gray, beige or brown, subtle pastels in shades of blue, pink or green, or bolder hues like red can all transform the way your dining room looks into an interesting space!
