1960s family room
November 14, 2012 in Design Dilemma
We are considering purchasing a 1960s ranch home. The family room has wood paneling, a brick fireplace wall and industrial gray carpet. We are planning to rennovate in a few years, but want to leave the room mostly as-is for the time being. The only improvements we will make are painting the paneling and replacing the carpet with hardwood (probably a medium dark oak or maple). I need suggestions for a wall color. I'd like to brighted the space with a white, but we have three kids so it needs to have some pigment to it. In the past we've used Benjamin Moore White Dove (flat) which showed SO much dirt. I was thinking of Bnjamin Moore Navajo White or Cameo White in an eggshell finish. The paneling is on two full walls and the room is very dark. Thanks for any suggestions!
