Trend Alert: Black Paint to Create a Moody (but Still Inviting) Dining Room

Who: Keri, interior enthusiast

Where: Connecticut

Why we love this pic: This compelling dining room perfectly rides the line between dramatic, sophisticated, and welcoming. The inky black walls set a moody tone while airy furniture and bright accents, like the midcentury chairs and kilim rug, ensure the design is as dynamic and welcoming as it is dramatic.

The takeaway: Mix dark walls with airy accents to create an unforgettable design.
