Colour inspiration for walls and floors - please help!

liz1502March 7, 2013
I have bought a new house and I am at the point of choosing paint colours for my hall and lounge/dining room. I have a very narrow staircase and small hall so light colours are essential but I don't want to go for typical golden neutral colours - I would like it to be a bit more modern. I am going to be using dulux trade paint so any ideas for paint colour would be gratefully appreciated. Also I am looking for a carpet colour to use in the hall, staircase and lounge/dining room - I want it to be all the same colour to keep cost down. My lounge and dining are furnished with walnut furniture and chocolate sofa and chairs and a mixture of bronze table lamps and light gold ceiling lights. Any advice oaint colour and carpet colour would be amazing!

Pictures of area would be helpful. I would start with carpet color. Do you like solid color, mixed pattern, etc???? If you do not like the beige colors paint, I would look at the blues which may look good with your dark furniture - this color could depend on the carpet you choose.
