Anyway, we did the research. Based on analysis of 120,727 dining rooms, it turns out 34% of dining rooms have white walls. Yes, that makes white by far the most popular dining room wall color.
The second most popular wall color is beige which makes up 28% of dining room walls. The third most popular wall color is gray which makes up 17%.
That means 79% of dining rooms opt for one of three colors. Clearly some colors are more popular than others.

Does popularity dictate that it's good?
I think in this regard it does. Personally, I love white walls so my opinion is that white is a great dining room color.
However, I also like light gray. I don't care for beige.
The point is it's personal to a large extent except that when you go to sell your home, it doesn't hurt to use colors that are common. Pink and purple interiors aren't exactly going to appeal to the masses.
