What color would you paint large open great room in Mid Century modern remodel?
pbportierJune 18, 2013
Builder is recommending Ice Cube by Sherwin Williams. I know I want an accent wall in the Aloe color tone around the large window in dining area that shares the space. Just not sure about all that white. Kitchen is modern with cappachino cabinets and a white island. This is all one open space with a tres ceiling defining the spaces.

Shades of light gray would compliment well with all the whites that is happening.

To me Ice Cube isn't too much different than white- which is fine, but then I would do an accent color. I'm not sure I would do the window wall though.Hhard to tell without pics of the entire space.

I would also recommend a light gray something that picks up a green undertone if you are wanting to do an accent wall in aloe.

As you can see from all the comments with photos, that the entire room needs to be considered when thinking of a paint color for the walls- the floor, the ceiling, i.e. is it low or really tall?, are there accents like stone around a fireplace? what will the furniture be in the room- dark tone or light? It all has to be taken into account.
