This is the view from the dining room in my house into the formal living room. The front door is just to the left.
I hate the carpet but we're stuck with it for the moment.
This is the view into the dining room. It has lovely paneling and chair rail which stops at the dining room side edge of these stupid Doric column room divider.
The dilema is that I would like to have the rooms different colors.
I would like my dining room to be this color (SW6601 Tanager) the color of my old living room.
I'm going for the full-on-Ralph Lauren-equestrian-chic look.
I would like the living room to be a very pale creamy yellow like this, although my browser turns into an awful insipid mess.
It is actually a pale yellow leaning toward the red side of the wheel not green.
The trouble is how do I create the dividing line?
I thought of turning it into built ins-- the husband says its not gonna happen.
My other option is a pilaster against each wall ending the chair rail and lining up with the columns.
