Wordless Wednesday: Pick a Color

 

My living room generally feels dark and gloomy.  (Or maybe it’s the rainy, cloudy weather from the past week?)

I got a wild hair and painted one wall white on Sunday.

But it’s too bright.  So I started mixing colors I had at home and trying out some new ones.

  1. Is that a pale green I see toward the bottom? I think that is a lovely color for a living room.

  2. I can't see the swatches that well, but I think a creamy white would be very pretty!

  3. I think the creamy greige or one of those pretty blue/greens (?) would be pretty and would brighten things up!

  7. a light gray can be lovely with the right accent color: bright yellow pillows or a deep red vase.

  8. Ditto Beth D. I just painted a room Silver Satin by Benjamin Moore and I love it. It's soft and bright, but not white. Goes with anything!!

  9. It looks like you are a fan of muted colors. I prefer the color over the middle cushion of the couch. It's a funny thing about white - it doesn't usually brighten a room. White is actually very hard to make work well in a room. I think a blue tone would work very nicely with your wood tones. Good luck.
