Plzzzz vote for color. Painter waiting...


Hi experts,

Here is the link to the area:
http://i1183.photobucket.com/albums/x479/webcrawler1/IMG_0004.jpg
Behind these drapes which I'm going to take out are big slider windows that face the backyard and the room is well lit naturally.
As you can see the kitchen, this room will also serve as a dining area and a small sitting area. Couldnt take the picture till the end.
For the wall colors in this room I am contemplating between yellow and green. (I dont like the yellow that the previous owner did in here and already taken out the lamps hanging from the ceiling)
Which color should I go with....???
I want to go with green as in the future I want to bring in furniture that has cream & white geometrical pattern on the chairs and a cream sofa. But DH wants to go with yellow as its a warm color and I understand his vision too...
As this'll be a place that we all will spend most of our time, I want it to be nice not restless.
Ahh need your advice please........
suggest some good colors as well..
Thanks a million...

In looking at your cabinets and your countertops, and taking into consideration the fabric you are going to introduce, I would go with something more on a warm taupe, or toasty golden color. The green and the yellow are wonderful colors, but (this is my taste and may not be yours, mind you) I would prefer to see more nautral palette with warmth in the color that will allow the new fabric to STAND up and the counters in the kitchen stand up also.

My wife just looked at your photo....her suggestion is to remove the cornice boxes and curtains...then take another picture....all that color is making it difficult to see your own personal taste......

ok so I've finalised:
for kitchen - BM (straw) - its a light yellow
for living room - BM (hazelnut cream)
for half bath - BM (dune grass) its a matte green
enough of pricey BM ... for the rest of the house I want to go Behr or from Lowe's
What would be a nice color complimenting the above colors for foyer? Obviously, I want a warm, bright feeling in there. Please suggest....
ThankYou..

You should probably feed that painter that is waiting, he's likely getting hungry by now.
