Blue and dining rooms aren't supposed to mix. No food is blue, so in theory, the color could kill your appetite. Blue is also supposed to encourage introspection, not conversation. But by varying the tone and intensity of the hue, you can find plenty of wiggle room. This particular palette with Benjamin Moore's Blueberry
on the walls, white on trim and furniture, and Fool's Gold
for the ceiling, is simply electric. You'll find yourself asking for seconds and chatting up a storm.
