This hutch could go in a few different places. It could be the china cabinet in the dining room,a book case in the family room, or the hutch/cabinet in the kitchen eating area. I don't think I would change the colour.
Love this hutch with open shelves and buffet space but unsure if it would be too casual for a dining room? If I went with a hutch it would have to be large, as it would be going in a nook space that is wide and deep.
