For entryway
November 17, 2012 in Design Dilemma
I am moving into an old colonial style home with grand staircase with off white carpet natural stained wood rails, white spindles. All woodwork crisp white. Adjacent room will have red leather sofa, love seat. What color to paint entry way and adjacent room.

A warm light beige/grey would look nice! Make sure to test swatches on the walls. Congrats on the new house!

I think that this is a perfect area for wallpaper. This is a striking paper: Entry A classic crasscloth would also look good: Classic Coastal Colonial Foyer This gold hue wallpaper is sophisticated: Lake House Wide stripe: Nantucket Cliffs

If you go with a red or navy wallpaper in the entry, then I would go with a light grey Like Balboa Mist from Benjamin Moore for the living room: Balboa Mist 1549 For the gold hue or the red wallpaper, try a soft yellow: Honeymoon AF-345 Paint Goldtone by Benjamin Moore

The paint color in adjacent room is coral. What color to paint with red sofa. Wall paper is light coral and I don't want to use wall paper. Paint is choice.
