Amazing what some paint can do!

Let's look back at this post and the design board I created for an e-decorating client in California:

Well I recently helped this same client with their dining room. I told them to go DARK with the paint, and I am so glad they listened :)

This is the before paint color:

The color I picked for them was "Deep Indigo" by Benjamin Moore. Love this color!

And here is the after. It's amazing what some paint can do.

I created a design board to help them with finishing touches on the dining room...

I'm crossing my fingers for some after shots :)

(ps - this dining room design board was done at my hourly rate which is always a good option when you only need a couple new things.)


  1. Wow! Love the paint color! We have yet to finish what you drew up for us; we ended up NOT moving and won't be moving until March. I'm still debating on some items because the place we'll be moving will have ALL white walls and so I am thinking color will be needed more than neutral colors. Lovely part about moving all the time :-( I'm still VERY stuck on what art to put on the one of our walls so I may have to do the hourly to get your help again.

  2. I love the navy walls. Even though the before and after colors are both blue the little bit of black in the after makes a huge difference. What a great mood for a dining room.

  3. love the dark color. Really makes the windows stand out more.

  4. Ok- L.O.V.E. that paint color. I want it. Almost as much as I want the windows in that room. Oh my gosh, GORGEOUS! And probably original to the house, which makes me all warm and fuzzy and wish I was born in the era where homes with that kind of character didn't cost a billion dollars to build!

    Also like the chandelier and pumpkin and green color on the design board!

  5. rocked that color. Really makes the room seem more sophisticated already.


THANK YOU for taking the time to share your thoughts. I appreciate each and every comment.
