Re: New Home!! Looking for color opinions :)


Here's an area rug I found at the depot. A little more neutral than Mike's.

Thank You,
This is kinda weird...... Ours before the gray.

Mike,
Haha didn't even notice the dog on the rug at first. It's not very interested in photos.

Johnson,
Gorgeous rug. My daughter recently got 2 traditional rugs at Lowe's and a contemporary one for the den at Ikea.

I think greys and soft browns would really make the other features in each room pop!

I've painted a lot of antique white over the years with various brands of paint. You wouldn't believe how much color difference there is between brands of antique white. Some are almost white while I used one brand that was closer to a pale beige.... and others are in between.

Re: New Home!! Looking for color opinions :)


thats really big rooms, so I wouldnt do white, thats gonna make it look even bigger and colder. Something warm but not too bold since. And the suggestion about buying a rug first and pulling a color out of it is very smart. Trust me, ive dont it backwards and its a headache. Painting and then spending oodles of time trying to match a rug to the paint. Stupid and hard. But I agree that the current peachy pink orange walls do not blend with your floors. Find a rug you love and then pick a color out of it that looks good against your floor.

Re: New Home!! Looking for color opinions :)


Beautiful home! I agree with Mike's suggestion. A soft neutral gray tone would be a great choice. I would get a few samples and figure out the tone of grey that would work well with the wood posts in your living room area. Same tone of grey in a deeper shade would go well in the kitchen to help bring out the countertops and the slate accent on the fireplace.

OR Antique white in the rest of the home and a faint nuetral grey in the kitchen.

Hope that helps. I also have several shades of grey with white trim in my home and office. Took us a long time to settle on a particular grey for the home, but we definitely love it! Looking forward to seeing your AFTER photos.
