Styling a Home Using The Color of the Year 2022 - Part 1 Dining Room

By Reza Pienaar

Benjamin Moore just announced October Mist as its 2022 Color of the Year. October Mist is a gorgeously soft and earthy shade of green that is evocative of relaxation, and peace, and it is often tied to growth. This color symbolizes balance and harmony. With its endless number of invigorating combinations, this palette provides effortless harmony for any paint project and every design style.

We'll show you how to style a beautiful dining room design around Benjamin Moore's October Mist. Using the natural mossy green backdrop with wood and black and white elements from high-quality brands such as Pottery Barn, West Elm, and Crate&Barrel, we will create a dining room that is balanced, earthy, and modern.

Styling a Dining Room Using The Color of the Year 2022


1. Rug

Jonathan Adler Inkdrop Camel & Ivory Rug

Elevate a warm oak floor. This versatile geometric rug can dress up any space with its simple pattern, glammed up by ink-inspired lines in camel brown on an ivory background. Water-resistant, stain-resistant, and machine-washable. Rug colors may vary slightly according to your device and the lighting in your space.


2. Dining Table

Banks Extending Dining Table

A planked tabletop of dramatic thickness creates a space of warmth for guests and family to gather around. Large baluster posts with cove and ogee details and a stretcher underneath give this table a dynamic design that’s crafted to last.


3. Dining Chairs

Westan Dining Chair

Embrace the comfort and simplicity of modern farmhouse design with our Westan Dining Chair. The gorgeous grain of the solid wood really pops, and the barrel back design and spindle legs strike a balance between classic and cool.


4. Sideboard

Toscana 75" Buffet

With room to store your dinnerware, table linens and glassware, this buffet is ideal for entertaining. An adjustable shelf behind each door lets you accommodate a variety of serving pieces and other essentials. Expertly crafted of kiln-dried solid Sungkai Wood, an oak like hardwood. Finished with Sungkai veneers.


5. Light Fixture

Camryn Metal Linear Chandelier

A brilliant display of two-toned metals and blown-glass orbs, the Camryn Lighting Collection is unapologetically modern. Borrowing inspiration from mid-century form, this linear chandelier’s sleek disposition, and substantial presence bring the best of both design worlds home.


6. Table Lamps

Faris Ceramic Table Lamp

This ceramic table lamp was crafted by skilled artisans in a women-owned factory. Variations along the edges and subtle markings add a subtle antique feel and make each lamp one of a kind. Base is crafted of clay with a hand-painted ivory or black finish.


7. Table Top Set

Larkin Reactive Glaze Stoneware 16-Piece Dinnerware Set

In iconic coupe designs, each tonal beauty showcases distinctly variegated hues and glaze patterning that sets a refined-meets-rustic table rich in tone and texture.

Artesia Black Round Placemat

Finished in black, our sophisticated round placemat is intricately handwoven for a warm, organic texture. Due to its handcrafted nature, placemats may vary slightly.

Center Stripe Woven Runners

A chunky stripe runs across pure cotton on our Center Stripe Woven Runner. No matter the occasion, it adds good cheer to any meal. Made with 100% pure woven cotton.


8. Wall Art

Abstract Ink Brush Framed Wall Art - Black & White

This bold, brushstroke canvas print works great as an abstract statement piece everywhere from entryways to guest bedrooms.

Lava Ash Tile Wall Art

From the ashes of the Mount Pinatubo volcano in the Philippines comes the phoenix of this distinctive, three-dimensional artwork. Volcanic ash and stone are mixed with resin to form origami-like geometric tiles. This large-scale artwork is versatile.


9. Accessories

Artisan Vase Collection - Black

A collection of vases that had elegance and allure found artifacts. The result is our Artisan Vase Collection handcrafted of pure terra cotta and glazed to replicate an aged patina.

Ceramic Totem Vases

The bold, sculptural shapes of our Totem Vases mean that they look just as good filled with botanicals as they do on their own.


10. Paint

October Mist

Evocative of the stem of a flower, this gently shaded sage anchors and uplifts.
