Punch up a neutral palette with bright blue and green accents.
The art hanging in House & Home editor Suzanne Dimma's dining room was made by friend and photographer Colin Faulkner. "I happen to be a big water person, and I fell in love with the series he did at Lake Huron," says Suzanne. "I grounded its blue-green tones by painting the wall behind it a warm grey by Farrow & Ball. It's a small room but it's beautiful to dine here. I like to roll out the carpet in the colder months and roll it up in the summer."
