need paint color suggestions for living room
February 22, 2013 in Design Dilemma
New (old) house with amazing wood trim, beams, floors, fireplace and leaded glass french doors into sunroom. Windows on E. and W. end and the french doors lead into a south-facing sunroom. Love bluish tones with the wood but open to ideas! (not our furniture) Would love to carry the color into the sunroom in a lighter hue perhaps....??

With the fireplace tiles plus the E/W exposure, try BM Patriotic White…blue undertone. For the south facing room, try BM white rain, it has a little more green in it.

Great, great house!!!

Can you get rid of the fireplace insert? Such a majestic fireplace, but the brassy-glass doors look cheap and flimsy in comparison. A really nice pair of andirons would pull it all together. The mirror is OK, but a nice painting, with a period frame and a picture light, would look better.

Like the BM White rain - wondering if this room needs more color since it's large with good light?

Sorry it is Bm November Rain.

There is a beautiful Farrow and Ball color called Chinese Blue 90. I can't find a pix to post. Maybe a a color like that in the sunnier room that ties in withe the fireplace?

OR BM Gull Wing Gray on the walls and use the turquoisey blue in your accents.

Love the Gull Wing Gray! I may use turquoise across the foyer in the dining room!
