at a lost

As you can see from the pic Im at a lost on what to do next in my decorating. I have the kitche walls to do and now I dont know what color to use. The goldish mustard color in my dining room is great i love the way it turn out, but I dont waqnt the same color in my kitchen. I have another pic of my living room which is the same color as the dining area. can anyone give me some ideas on what color I can paint the kitchen walls.

I too, like the color in your dining room. It's warm. I think a lighter color in the kitchen might look nice. Maybe a type of yellow, like this yellow in the vase on the dining room table. Not sure how that would blend with the wood cabinets. I'd get some samples to hold up and compare.

On another thread someone suggested buying a sample can of paint to be able to sample some larger areas. Sounded like a good idea to me.

Good luck finding the right color.

I am not an interior decorator but I will throw out a couple of thoughts. What if you hung a piece of trim floor to ceiling at counters edge. Keep the mustard color in the dining room but only to the new trim board not to the cabinets. Then maybe a soft beige or even a sage could work. Like I said though, I'm not a decorator.

Hey the color really looks good in your dining room and not to worry choose some light beige tone color for your kitchen just finish that wall in the same color as your dining space and for the rest of the other walls try the other shade.
