paint color for a low lighted living room.
mbedmundOctober 4, 2012
Any suggestions on a color that would be good for a living room that only as one window. We are in the process of buying a 1940's house. It has heart of pine floors. I absolutely want to stay away from yellow, but need something more than white. Thanks!

LR has to blend with other rooms + flooring + furniture + window treatments. Read this interesting article on painting a dark room in a darker color. http://www.mariakillam.com/2009/03/a-light-colour-will-never-come-to-life-in-a-dark-room.html

Wonderful article... I was toying with a rich moroccan blue color, but wasn't sure whether to try it. Now I think I will. Thankyou!

Perhaps a more traditional blue would work with the era of the home.
