In many countries it is more than usual to have a dining room in a single room instead of two separate rooms, one for each function.

You will also make the ceiling appear higher if you choose sheets or photographs with an elongated shape and a good size.By just following these simple tips, you will get a dining room with a well-used space and with better defined areas.

Before we get down to work and change the walls of our house, we must know how to choose the paint correctly . Today there are many options available and it is not easy to decide on the most suitable one. However, the tones of our walls will completely change the appearance of our home, so it is a very important decision to make. That is why today we are going to see some basic tips and what aspects to take into account before choosing the paint that you really want and need in your home.How big is the room?We will start by taking into account the characteristics of the place we want to paint. The choice of the color of the walls will not be the same if the room is small or large. Normally the most appropriate is to opt for light tones when when there is not much space and, if you want, in the larger places you can put darker tones.If your room is small and you still want to add a touch of color, you can paint the back wall darker. You will get the sides to visually separate and you will gain a feeling of spaciousness.How much natural light does it have?Before choosing the paint for a room, we must also look at the natural light it has. You will know it by its orientation and number of windows. Those facing east and south receive more sunlight and those facing north or west are darker. For the first, more vivid tones can be used and in the second, more clarity will be achieved with light tones. It is also a good idea in both cases to paint the wall with more windows in a more intense color, so that the light is reflected on the others.What type of paint do I choose?If you have a wall with imperfections or in crowded places, the satin paint is a good option and the glossy one is not so much. The latter will be more suitable for rooms in which you want to have more luminosity since it reflects light, unlike matte, which will serve you for darker rooms.Use paint swatches to paint your chosen wall and see how they look at different times of the day before deciding on one.In terms of aesthetics, there are also options such as ecological paint with a chalk paint look , chalkboard paint in various colors or those that imitate materials such as stucco. Here the choice will depend on the decorative style you want to have at home: vintage, industrial, Nordic, ...What color is the most suitable?We will not choose the same colors depending on what the room is for. A bedroom will ask us for different tones to those of an office or a living room. In rooms designed for relaxation such as the bedroom or living room, relaxing colors such as white, blue, gray or light green will be used. In places where we want to activate like the kitchen or the office, the best will be stimulating tones such as orange, yellow or red.Choose a color for the walls that matches the rest of the decoration. Create a harmonious set with tones that are repeated in other elements, such as textiles or paintings.

Sometimes it happens that, something that we already knew before, suddenly begins to attract more attention. The green and pink combination is not new in interior decoration, but lately it attracts me more and more. Our tastes are changing and it is logical that, even things that we have at home and before we loved, now they do not tell us anything, or vice versa.The same thing that happens with decoration happens to us with clothes, hair, and even with people ... But let's not go down those paths, let's be inspired by some images and examples of how we can decorate with pink and green colors in our house .Bet on velvet.The easiest way to add a specific color to your decoration without changing it too much is with textiles . That being said, if those new shades don't match the rest, it won't be the best idea. But if we have a neutral base in the room, it is easy for them to fit. In the case of pink and green, the perfect way to incorporate them is in the form of velvet . They look great together and add more sophistication and femininity if possible. If you like the idea, you do not have to stay on the cushions or rugs, you can even jump in with the sofa.Full color walls.Bold, yes. Eye-catching and full of personality, too. The option of painting the walls with these colors is not for all audiences. Of course, whoever dares, will not leave anyone indifferent. You can choose some pastel and softer tones to preserve originality and subtract a bit of daring.The most elegant tropical.The tropical style has entered our homes in various ways years ago. The most direct way to add a green touch to an interior is to add plants , even on wallpaper walls . With them we already have green incorporated; the pink can go in the furniture or in the decorative details.Any stay is good.Not only living rooms or bedrooms can benefit from this color combination. In bathrooms and kitchens it is the most original used in tiles, lamps or even the most modern sinks.Pink and green total look .If the combination is convincing you, you might like one in which practically everything is green and pink. Only suitable for the biggest fans of these colors and the less conventional ones. Would you dare with your house?
Above all, naturalness.Nature must be present in a bohemian environment, because it is part of its philosophy. You can include it in the interior of the house thanks to the colors that remind us of it, such as earth tones and green .To add them, use another must of this style such as rugs and cushions in earthy tones and natural fibers . The greens will come from the hand of another boho must: plants . These are nature in themselves and all sizes are welcome.Mixed but not crowded.The basis of the bohemian is eclecticism , so it is law to mix styles to decorate with it. In boho chic it is also mixed, but with a little more restraint, always without crowding the environment. Leave a neutral base in the room so that later you can play freely with textures, colors and ethnic patterns.Forget the rules.As we have said many times before, you have to be comfortable with the decoration of your own home. One of the best bases of the boho chic style is that you can forget about the decorative rules practically in their entirety and decorate with what really makes you feel good .Add personal pieces.To achieve this style you can use pieces of all kinds and all origins. It is perfect for adding flea market objects, decoration made by yourself , memories of your travels, restored furniture and special, eye-catching and bohemian objects such as an indoor swing .Bringing the chic .To differentiate the boho chic style from the pure bohemian, a more sophisticated touch is added to the rooms. Less furniture, less bright colors and more elegant pieces like a gold pendant lamp , a marble table or a velvet cushion . This way, the decoration will be more glamorous and will remain in a relaxed and cozy atmosphere.
