Need help finding the right paint color
September 18, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I'm having such a hard time finding the right paint color for my dining room. (Grainy picture attached). I've been considering brown/gray shades, but want something warm -- every sample I get looks so cold.

To give you more info, my dining room is across from my formal living room (Garrison Red by BM). The foyer separating the rooms is in Mushroom Bisque by Behr. In the back of my house everything is painted Northampton Putty by BM. My furniture is dark brown.

Any suggestions? I am willing to go outside of the gray/brown I mention above -- open to new ideas. Thank you!

I think a neutral brown would look wonderful on the wall. It's hard to suggest a color cause pictures never do complete justice of the floor color but I'd go get a set of swatches from your local paint store and see what looks good. Another thought is to also put some new window treatments on those beautiful windows. You could really make them pop and the space feel more elegant with something like Plantation Shutters.

What is your overall color scheme or style?

This is a just a good example of layering. Roman shades for privacy when needed and gray [neutral] draperies to give an illusion for high ceilings.

Warm regards,

Those are wonderful windows, and the floors look great too. With the chair rail, not to complicate things, but you could do two complimentary colors, and balance it out with a neutral sheer panel for the windows. So many great options for this room.
