Country dining room with dark painted walls and ornate stone fireplace

This dining room proves how a dark wall colour can create an inmate ambience, in the right setting –a room dedicated to hosting dinner parties is just that. The dark inky blue grey paint colour works, despite the low ceiling height because of the large window.

The flying swallows and antler plaques are the perfect wall accessories to enhance the country decor. An ornate stone fire surround is extenuated by a gold gilded overmantel mirror.
