what color would you paint these rooms?


Hi, newbie home owner here

I took a video of the kitchen and living room, try to ignore the audio ...the kitchen is divided into two shades of tan/brown. The living room is pink...I know its an open ended question, but the colors on the floor are awful right now, so any suggestions would be welcome

Well I assumed you were painting the walls but you complain about the floors.
You said:
"the colors on the floor are awful right now".
So this led me to think you may be changing the floors and if you were to paint the floors you wouldn't be the first one to do so around here. Never know what goes on in the minds of people these days.

You also admit you are asking an "open ended question" but then you seem to be surprised by an open ended response.

Then you go on to say: "so any suggestions would be welcome", but apparently not. We aren't getting anywhere so far.

Then just for fun I made a comment on the motorcycle damper you bought and then returned and that comment doesn't seem to be getting through either. So I'm now as lost as you appear to be.

oh lol...you had me stumped there...im sorry if my wording was wrong it was very late at night when i had originally posted this. if i dont get anything useful out of this thread, it's probably my own fault for asking such a vague question.

Anyways, the flooring is okay...i would've preferred a darker laminate/hardwood, but its the wall paint that is really concerning me, not only because the colors are overly bold and odd, but also because the job was a mess.

the damper issue was resolved thankfully.

In my experience the colors of your walls are in fact contemporary in this part of the country. I work in new homes and usually see the painting being done. The colors you have is basically what I see being done here. With the exception of the pink. I never see pink walls anywhere these days.

Why not go get some paint samples and take them home and try to get a feel for what you like with your floors and furnishings? Earth tones are still the in-thing as far as I can see. That would include shades of green, I see a lot of green pastels these days.

I agree that a nice warm yellow is great for kitchens. A deep blue (not navy, think royal), might be nice for the living room.

I already watch the video, your house is nice, in my opinion, although your house is painted, it seems like not giving no aura or feeling when staying at home, it seems empty, my advice is using wallpaper, just choose the right one to match the furniture of your kitchen, put a picture or decorating vase.

Give it up folks.

The OP hasn't been back for a month and doesn't really care what anyone here has to say any more.

What sort of colours do you like is the biggest question? Then it's easier to go from there.

However as a suggestion, I think this colour scheme looks fantastic:

as does this:

But if you don't like these colours then.....

You guys just don't want to quit do you?

I'm thinking the place could use some more furniture and dragon statues before it needs to be painted.
