Today on the blog, I’m sharing the final reveal of my dining room using Behr MODERN MOCHA!
When we walked through this house unfurnished, the dining room felt like the room with endless possibilities. I loved that it had it’s own intentional space rather than a dining table in an open floor plan.
In my last home, House No. 13, our dining table was just past the kitchen. I centered it to a chandelier and grounded it with a rug – it was perfect! With our kitchen complete and full of countertop seating, my kids often found their way to the island for family meals. Between school and activities, getting our family of 7 to sit down for a meal isn’t something that happens by accident – we plan!

Dining Rooms in Open Floor Plans
Having a dedicated dining room that was separate (but close) to the kitchen has made the world of difference! I love walking into this room (Modern Mocha by Behr), setting the table, and making intentional family time. Without this room done, family dinner wouldn’t happen nearly as often. I can’t wait to make memories here!
Behr Modern Mocha
If you missed it, we did a fun little surprise on Instagram stories (@mallorynikolaushome) where we did all the videos in black and white as to surprise you all with the paint color! I knew Modern Mocha by Behr would be out of my comfort zone. In most rooms I design, I choose paints in the white, black, or blue family – pink as a wall color is new for me!
A few close guesses but no one actually guessed Modern Mocha by Behr! This color is a total chameleon, it looks blush, muddy blush and muddy purple depending on the lighting! It’s so fun to see it transform throughout the day in various lighting.
I first saw this color used in I Spy DIY’s bathroom and I KNEW I had to try it! My secret dining room makeover was the perfect space. I am so beyond obsessed with the color.
