The first time was a beige disaster.
The second attempt we used a light shade of grey called "tinsel", but it wasn't really working with the grey in the adjacent living room. Plus, I decided to use the tinsel paint in another part of our house.
So, after looking at swatches for many seasons, I came across the brochure below of the Benjamin Moore 2015 paint colors and decided the new dining room should be pale pink. The pink is so pretty with the grey. The pink in the photo below is BM "pink damask".
Because we had a home depot giftcard to use, I decided to go with something similar, "magnolia grandiflora" from the Martha Stewart collection. The color is great, but the quality of Martha's paint was a huge disappointment (3 coats with primer). Will be sure to stick with the Benjamin Moore paint in the future. Lesson learned.

The framed print below is a vintage 1969 Vera linen tea towel calendar. It is currently in an album cover frame, but I plan on having it made into a large poster size print (for my own personal use of course) for the dining room.
