Painting transition

I would like to paint the walls behind my pellet stove two tones,the lower half lighter like the hearth,the top portion a green. The problem is the adjoining walls,how do I transition back to the off white that I want on the other (adjoining) wall, to the left of the door.

If you want to do two tones, I'd suggest just the fireplace wall (the area with the stone tiles) one color, then the rest of the walls the other color. If you do a half wall, then the different flooring, it will look like a choppy patchwork quilt. I'd suggest one color behind the stove, then the other walls a complementary color.

but the stove is on two walls because it is in the corner,, are you saying paint only one oft those walls one color and the wall that the door(and pellet stove) sits on another?

I was first thinking to paint only the area behind the stove. But, I'm thinking any two tone would look choppy because the door is there, the stove, then the hearth stone area. I think just painting ALL the walls a green color you love with give flow and a warm, cozy room. How about Georgian Green on all the walls. Doing a two tone paint will chop up the space and will look a bit busy. Wall color thoughts...
