I sent a request a short while ago for help in choosing a color for my family room. I now have a picture to include.
I chose Benjamin Moore Louisburg Green for the kitchen, which is on the other side of the wood rail.
I like the look of the turquoise trim on the valance.
How about painting the walls taupe(grey beige)? The grey tone would look good with the green.
Maybe try barely beige its in the Benjamin Moore collection.
I would stay light since the carpet and fireplace are dark. I would go with an almond or taupe color, somthing with a very light brown. I would keep with earth tones since the kitchen is now painted green and the other things in the livingroom appear to be more earthtone.
Go online to Sherwin Williams, and look up the color of Ivorie (yes, that is the correct spelling). Our contractor suggested a darker 'tan,' but my wife found that color, and painted our kitchen/grandroom Ivorie, and it is beautiful. Everything goes with it. If I could describe the color, I would say that it is like a golden butter pecan ice cream. And, it makes you hungry to be in the kitchen. lol.
Perhaps you could use one of the lighter shades from your brick wall
I'd use the same green I used to paint the kitchen.
Your carpeting looks green in the photo. By continuing the same shade up the walls it will make your rooms look bigger (and therefore more expensive). Good luck
