How many paint colors are too many?
July 27, 2012 in Design Dilemma
We are in the midst of repainting our soon to be new house, head to toe with new paint, walls, trim and ceilings. Think 1930 traditional, red brick Georgian, center hall floor plan. Back of the house had an addition for kitchen/family room great room. Is it too much color to do one color in dining room (navy), one color for center hall 1st and 2nd floor (butter cream yellow) and then 3rd color for formal living room space and family room/kitchen? I have been told that 1 or 2 colors is more 'sophisticated' but we don't seem to gravitate to 1 or 2 for the entire main.... Thoughts?
