Need help with paint color!

jennyloupruMay 6, 2012
I have a 2 story great room (faces west, lots of tall windows) that is currently Benjamin Moore Chesterton Buff (HC-9). The paint continues from this room to the 2 story foyer, so there are a lot of walls. It is looking a little dated, I want to update the look: I am getting 2 new chairs, a large round mirror and a leather ottoman in the room. Couch and rug are staying. Still searching for the right pice of art over the couch - something big. I want to repaint the room more of a grey/beige color and get some curtains. I have already have HC-79 Greenbriar Beige in a lot of the house, which is a beige with a greenish look to it. I also have a lot of Phillipsburg Blue HC-159 around, though not in direct sight from this room. Every grey I try seems to be too cool. Any suggestions for warm-ish grey paint and curtain colors? I was thinking either slate blue or maybe even light lavender curtains? Husband thinks I'm crazy....

It is a nice room and the furnishings were screaming for a canvas switch-out! What did you do? Inquiring minds . . .
