Need help choosing a color?
I.need some help choosing a color for my living room.I did a wooden ceiling using tong and grove planks in soft pine and stained it with Min-Wax Poly Shade classic oak in satin.I'm not a Pro but I would like some Ideas on what be a good color for the walls to go with the ceiling.Trim and doors are also the same color as the ceiling.I been using Glidden Paint in other rooms I have Painted.I used to buy Behr paint but I decided to buy Glidden paint for the first time beacause it was cheaper then Behr paint,The Glidden Paint spreads and covers nicely.I been buying it in satin finish,I'm not to fond of Semi Gloss because of to much shine,So right now I'm just having a difficult time choosing a color to go with the cassic oak color stain,any color suggestions would be most greatful.

It would be just a tad harder to pick a colour for you without seeing what your room looks like even though you described it... :icon_cheesygrin:

Paint consultation~
I agree, photos will help give us an overall feel of your space. I am an interior designer and i will send you 3 paint swatches (i use pittsburg paints) that you can take to your local hardware store to match. I charge $29.00 per room. My specialty is paint and with additional information i can point you in the right direction! If you would like additional info please contact me!

As I understand “classic oak color stain” is a light wood. Usually in this situation, designers advise to select contrasting color. It may be a saturated blue. Also deep chocolate color will look good. I've made such walls in my apartment. I thought it will look gloomy but this color turned out to be quite cozy.

How many windows are in this room? How much natural light? What are your favorite colors? What color is the carpet and furniture?

white is the one match for all the other colour. Photoes can help us know more about your living room and give advice precisely.

I would go with a darker greige color. Such as Brandon Beige ny Benjamin Moore

I agree with this guy.

I love the combination of light and dark colors. It always looks striking. Choose some soft, unobtrusive shades

I just painted a few rooms in my house white, will be laying another layer of off-white cream over shortly. I like the look so far!

Re: Need help choosing a color?
Trying to paint bright and fresh color in bedroom. while doing interior design, you need to consider the flooring of your room, bed color, curtains of windows.As I suggest you, don't go for dark color. The perfect color is off-white because it suits on all kind of combination and it's look better.
