Need help painting 2 adjoining rooms!


I have a living room and a dining room separated by an arch. I would like to paint these 2 rooms different colors. Not sure how to arch area to separate the colors. Any suggestions are appreciated! (Pics attached)

I would paint the arch the color of the most-used room. I would suggest painting the other room a darker version of the same color.

Because the arch blends into the Dining wall, it should be the Dining color. There is no other way, in my view.
