Need to choose a paint color
shortped
March 2, 2013 in Polls
I bought a 1929 colonial home. We are going to do everything! The living room and dining room are on opposite sides of the foyer with large open archways. The living room is 16 x 26. Door to outside on one of the short walls and a large front window consuming most of the other short wall. The dining room has the other large front window. When you look at the front of the house, there is a semi-circle drive. Then the front door flanked by the big windows mentioned above. The windows need to be balanced and colors must flow well. I like being able to change things for seasons and holidays. I like all colors and feel overwhelmed. The long wall of the living room has a fireplace with red brick and white casing. I have been thinking about orange, gold, green, and red because I have a couple of slipper chairs with these...also, easy to change with seasons.
Do I use a neutral wall?
Do I use a daring color on focal/fireplace wall?

I like the daring color, especially since you already have chairs that would go with it.
