Casa Craving Recap: A Daring Dining Room

I love the antique-looking paint on these Vintage Aqua Dining Chairs ($350). So for last week's Casa Craving Challenge, I asked you guys to put together a formal dining room with these elegant and funky pieces at the center. The only catch was that aqua shade couldn't show up anywhere else in the room.

Black-and-white ruled the palettes here, with a few surprising accent colors thrown in. I appreciate the wide variety of decorating styles you guys matched with the rather traditional chairs. You can see all of the daring dining room bookmarks here, as well as the lists users created with their items. (Learn how to create your own lists here.) Here are a few of my favorites.

Look #1, designed by ProperGray, who says: "I do daring by infusing citron and lime greens as a complementary color to the aquamarine chairs. Layered otherwise with a glamorous base of black and white, this formal and eclectic dining room stimulates the mind — and hopefully stimulates the stomach."

For two more looks,

Look #2, designed by Klynnmorton, who went for a more floral, delicate look with pastel accents and orchid-adorned dinnerware.

Look #3, designed by Ginasugar, who "chose black furniture and white accents so the attention of the room would really focus on the chairs. Then I threw in an old photo of a Hi-Fi for a little retro touch."
