|Fantastic color change! Benjamin Moore: Sterling Gray|
We've been busy bees over at the Seifert home. The painter visited the kitchen and we did a little rearranging.
We originally told you about the dining room in an earlier post. With some inherited family furniture and a limited budget, we had to get creative.
We started with the wall color. Even though it was a pale blue-gray, it was so light it almost blended into the trim. It definitely wasn't adding anything to the room! There was also too much furniture in the room making it look crowded. Since we couldn't replace the pieces, we relocated them to the kitchen and the family room.
We chose Benjamin Moore's Sterling Gray for the walls. The new color has a calm, soothing effect and coordinates nicely with the existing rug. It now has a softer appearance without the icy undertone.
The coral paint on the back of the shelves accents the coral in the rug. We took the navy and white china and placed it front and center inside the double doors to bring some blue to the shelves. The two end doors were then filled with a LOT of crystal stemware. If 40 people came over; every last one of them could have a glass of wine, in their very own glass.

I love the deeper paint color and the china cabinet styling coupled with fewer pieces of furniture. I think it is a much cleaner look! Tell us what you think! Leave a comment below! And don't forget to enter to win a room re-design of your own! See official contest rules here and enter today!
