I painted my downstairs area Behr Fashion Gray and Shale Grey thinking that since they were complimentary colors on the Behr website they'd go well together. Unfortunately, it looks more like a young boys bedroom instead! I'm planning on adding a chair rail, base molding and crown molding. Please give me some color suggestions to replace the Shale Grey a.k.a. Blue. I want to keep the Fashion Grey. Any ideas would be welcome as I'm fresh out of them!

I think using the same color in a reduced or enhanced formula (i.e. different intensities of the same color) is a particularly nice and subtle way to do two tones in a room.

Different options (all with chair rail):
* Find a metallic wallpaper to match the grey. Make patterned wainscoting.
* White for a more classic look, a white textured wallpaper would add fun.
* Dark blue (jeans) in gloss.
* The same color with a white chair rail.
