I am looking for the perfect color to paint my living room, its a little tricky so I am going to get specific.
I recently purchased a house with kitchen and living room that was divided by a large pantry. After demolishing the pantry to create space for a dining room table I am now left with an open concept room. I love the idea to have a wall that is accented and have already purchased an accent color called "Estate Vineyard" by Behr.
How about taupe(grey/beige)?
I do a lot of decorating for my home and several friends homes. Not knowing the style of your home it is difficult to say.
The red family is a great color. Not Christmas red but perhaps a muted rusty or ruddy red. It goes well with many colors and can be contemporary or country. You could use it with the wheat color you already have and do a two tone color. Lighter on the bottom and darker on the top with a simple chair rail to divide the color. Paint the chair rail the other accent color. You might have very striking results. You can always buy the $5 tiny can to do a swatch test on the area. Wait a couple of days and live with it. You need to see it in all lights. There is nothing worse than painting a room and hating it after a few days. I know first hand!
Oh, no matter what you decide, take a swatch of the paints you already have to make sure they comlpliment each other. Take them outside of the store too.
ok so I changed my ideas and need more guidance... My furniture is all contemporary so I am doing my house design this was as well.. I live in a brownstone in Brooklyn Ny but am making the 100 yr old home modern.
The estate vineyard color I mentioned is now going to be my primary color. My accented wall will be the Prince color I mentioned as well...
so my kitchen will be in the dark burgundi color .. now I have to decide to paint the oak cabinets..
should I stay them the same cherry wood color I am staining my floors??? I wanted to paint them black to keep the modern appeal... but in a brownstone without huge windows i am scared it may be too dark... should I just paint them white like the trim I have???
