Living room colors-Yellow, White, Sage or Taupe


I'm going to look at that color at SW. My house doesn't have a lot of windows and it looks like a color that would brighten and warm the rooms. I think the white trim will really enhance the color. Have you seen Behr's Navajo White? It is a different shade of white that I'm using on trim in several rooms and I really, really like it.

I hope they will negotiate on the valance. At least it should have been covered by a drop cloth.

Have you considered having a cornice box constructed and covered with a coordinating patterned fabric? I've seen them done on DIY shows on TV and in fact, on the HGTV website, there are instructions for DIYers. Cornice boxes are in serious contention for my windows because I'm not a big drape person.

Good luck, and let me know how it comes out. My email is shapeshftr04@yahoo.com.

Well, the painter will not do anything about ruining my valance. So I need to shop for a new one. I really did not want pink valance so I am glad to see it go. So what colors should I be looking at for valance? Really dark colors or light? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I am really liking my wall colors.

THank you.

I would personally go with a dark colour.

If you have a rug in the living room, you can play off those colours.

My living room is painted the same colour, (I have black leather couch),
and the window treatment that I have is a black iron rod with burgundy
drapery panels on each side, all the way to the ground.

Also, I have accented with similar colour cushions.

I'd consider a print that integrates the wall, floor and maybe even the fireplace surround.

Also, I'd think about a cornice box in lieu of the valance.

Oops, I forgot to say 'integrate the colors in the wall, furniture and maybe even the fireplace surround.'

LOL, does your husband read this forum?

Ditch the valance or go with something smaller, it will make the room look bigger.

Glad you have a sense of humor. Don't go by my advice on the valance. I know nothing about window treatments.

Was just a natural guy reaction. sorry.
