Color Crazy

The orange is in my kitchen and the blue gray is the living/dining room. How can I transition the colors better (refer to picture where colors meet)

Blue gray accessories in the kitchen and orange in the living room, plus art with both colors.

Maybe change the light fitting?

Love the colors! I agree, you can use art and accessories to blend them together. Check out my work to see if anything works for you. I can customize my canvas prints to your size, and I have originals that match your decor.

Have fun decorating!

Actually I think the ivory serves as a great compromise - bring in accents from both sides and I believe it works.

I don't see a problem. Would probably need to see the space furnished, but, so far, I like the colors.

I really like the artwork suggestions you have received but aside from this please see the image below for an idea for furniture; wood tones and lighting effects work well to compliment the grey and orange colour (I am unsure if you already have furniture but hope this helps).

@Barnhart Gallery: that puts the color junction into a much better, perceived aspect for me. Brilliant it is how you overlapped the images to identify the rooms potential. I feel much more at ease with your suggestions towards the opportunities I have. Mahalo.

Once the carpet and painting is complete I will furnish the house with complementary furniture. Thank you a for your ideas. You just took an island boys intransigence towards his current color dilemma and made home excited once again!!! Kudos to each post.

Happy you're feeling positive Kekoa; it will be a vibrant space when you have it all together.

(And it doesn't have to be King Kong, lol, just showing you something orange against the grey. Although I have to say, I do love the old b&w print of the elephant against the orange. Choose what you love in the appropriate colors and you can't go wrong.)

Great colors! I love when people aren't afraid to put color on the walls! I love the accessories Barnhart supplied, he gets my vote :)

I put similar colors (salsa dancing- BM and almost charcoal - Valspar) in my eat in kitchen that opens to LR and hall. We added Black walnut hardwood and painted LR Ghost Ship Grey-Valspar. It is a very light/white/ grey to go with the charcoal that meets the hall and LR. This area faces north, so we wanted light. Hoping to be finished this week and will add pictures.

I love your two walls and like very much the idea of adding artwork and accessories in the opposite color in each space.

I have a trick I haven't seen anyone use before and it is very simple, stylish and cheap if wanting to bring some natural timber into the wall joints, blend two colour walls subtly or break up a "white box room" subtly. Purchase some timber diamond/triangular shaped quad (any width you like - best not too heavy), stain and lacquer it for natural timber finish or paint it any colour you like 'eg dark charcoal, grey/blue metalic to catch light or tie metal elements etc), cut to size between cornice and skirt, then recommend bluetack for adhesive to wall or light nail top and bottom if wanting permanent. Brings a very "polished" finished joint to any two colour walls or single colour walls, takes the hassle out of edging corners especially if you like re-painting the one main feature wall colour every few months, great for bringing floor colour up walls, framing main timber furniture in a multi coloured or single coloured room etc....highly recommend trying this easy, so many wonderful effects achievable - small and cheap detail but highly effective!
