What colour should I paint this living/dining room?

We just purchased this home and will reno before we move in. I'm looking to achieve a casual ranch/farmhouse look, but not too rustic. Also looking for flooring recommendation. We are considering a wire brushed oak hardwood in medium tone.

Sherwin Williams has a nice collection of colors grouped under "Naturally Neutral" that could work nicely. Looks like your ceiling may go relatively high with lots of light from large windows that could allow you to paint an unexpected darker color there. Collect your floor samples 1st and then pick up paint chips that blend. Once you have a pleasing combination, test paint samples on each wall and view throughout the day in varying light. This room has great potential! P.S. Start your window treatments near the ceiling to accentuate their height and visually create more space and a cleaner look.

I'd change out the ceiling fan. Can you use the hardware from the valance/drapes.... Move it up higher and get new drapes? Paint the gold in the fireplace black (use special/correct paint). I'd keep the chair roll molding in the dining room, but eliminate it in the living room.

What about a two tone cream for dining room area and a blue for living room.
