Need Wall Color Help


I also think that color would work, though difficult to tell from that square, I might be inclined to go a shade darker. In our living room it is similar, though darker and has a hint of light chocolate... (hard to describe ok!)

Need Wall Color Help


hello ppls

acutally I am new to this forum and currently working as interior design for more than 3 years now. I was thinking of same color when I saw the picture first. That is the exact color I did last year of one client of mine and he loved it.

You want to go with a color that will make the white trim POP. For the open living room area i would go with this color. The pic on the bottom it didn't copy well off of the other forum I stole this from dustball.

On the kitchen i would add some hardware on the upper and lower cabinets. Stainless or nickle i like nickle. Then go with this color. Once again this pic was stole from dustball. He is a rehab specialist. The bottom pic.

The dining room I have an oak table with chairs that have cream seats.

For the living room I purchased a living room set that I believe is olive/light brown possibly.

What advice do you have for wall colors? I'll probably paint the dining room/living room all one color since they share a wall. I want something vibrant that will mesh well and allow the rooms to work together.

Please help!
The use of color is also something very personal. The best way to choose a paint color for the room is to trial with a palette of different shades and tones, in combination with the color and textures of the furniture and materials.

Need Wall Color Help


Hi, Your paint colors are really at the tail end of your decisionmaking here, which is why you're having a tough time. Your colors will come out of something that you already love (piece of artwork) or something that makes a statement, yet to be discovered. Don't even think about the wall colors yet. Grab a throw pillow or anything that will make it possible for you to get a color match to that brown or green sofa, then off to the paint store to find a perfect match paint chip. This is probably NOT your wall color. If you have a great piece of art that you really figured would be in this area somewhere, do the same color chip search. This could be something as simple as a favorite platter or tray that you always have leaning on the counter. Did you say what was on the floors? There are varying degrees of neutral and just because beige doesn't make a color impact doesn't mean it looks right with all other colors. So, if you have not found your inspiration artwork, maybe it will be a fabulous area rug. Maybe it's going to be a cornice board that reflects a repetitive pattern in rug and throw pillows. This is all the preliminary work to wall color selection. A great deal of your decisonmaking on wall colors will be done before you ever hit the paint store. Get your color chips for all of the colors that you have going on in fabrics and artwork and THEN start thinking about proportions. If there is only a dash of vivid persimmon in a painting, maybe you want that as an accent wall upon which the painting hangs - or directly opposite that pinting wioth a few more splashes of the same color around the room in glass pieces and throw pillows or throws. Use texture for contrasts. Buy more fabric than you expect to use and it will be available for covering an ottoman or some other needed accent. Does this help? The items you select for your room will dictate the choices of paint colors. Remember that a gallon of some custom wonderful perfect shade of paint costs the same as any random color, the computer can get a perfect shade match, and it could be darned near impossible to locate rug or fabric to work with that randomly chosen chip.
