Need help with color scheme
I am in a great deal of color advice. My house was a model home built in 1990 with a taupe and pink interior color scheme. I purchased it a few years ago and I am now trying to update the colors. The problem I am facing is finding a color scheme that will coordinate with the trim, the floor, etc. The trim (same color as kitchen cabinets and built ins), despite appearing light and neutral, casts either a grey hue or a pink hue. The stain on our oak wood floors is a medium brown with a yellow undertone. I was reading in another forum that yellow undertones (floors) do not agree with the red undertone (trim). My house is relatively large and I would not like to have to redo the trim or the floor. Also, I am a brunette with olive complexion and would like the new color scheme to agree with my coloring (so most yellows are out of the question.) Should I just give up and go with white walls? Please help!
