New obsession-thank you, Sherwin Williams.

I have no idea when we'll get around to it, but eventually, I'd love to paint the dining room.  The color in there now is beige-y with peach undertones; not terrible, but there's a nice chair rail and I'd like to play that up by having 2 different colors on the walls.  Lo and behold, today I stumbled across a fabulous online tool thanks to Sherwin Williams that allows you to upload a picture then "paint" the walls of the picture.  Genius!!  Click here to check out their color visualizer.

Here is the before of our dining room:

Here are the 2 test pictures that I did of our dining room:

Sherwin Williams Cobble Brown on the top, Nantucket Dune on the bottom

Sherwin Williams Loggia on top, Plantation Brown on the bottom
We don't have the area rug on the floor anymore, so it's just a hardwood floor.  We're keeping the light fixture, but I'm open to changing up the curtains.  So we really have no color limitations in the room.  We have a lot of blue walls in the house (foyer and all of the upstairs hallway, and the powder room on the first floor), red in the living room, yellow in our bedroom and Jake's I feel like we're set as far as primary colors go, but I'm open to suggestions/ideas!  What color do you have in your dining room?  Do you love it?  Or are you about to go play around on the Sherwin Williams' site, too? :)  We've never used Sherwin Williams paint (we're pretty Behr loyal), opinions on their paint?

Very cool - I think with the white door (which I love) the darker color looks better on top. Fun!

I agree with Sheila - love the darker color on top. Also, I can HIGHLY recommend Sherwin Williams paint. Very good, and often on sale for 30% off. I've used it before, and our entire house was done with it by the builder.

I was obsessed with the paint visualizer for a while there. I love that you can get an idea of what the paint color would look like in your own space.

I also like the first combo a lot, I think it would look great in your dining room.

I agree, the darker color on the top. We used Sherwin Williams on furniture for both boys rooms, highly recommend it.
