Need a help choosing the right wall color?
October 18, 2013 in Design Dilemma
My living room wall color turned cool baby blue instead of light soft gray. We are planning to repaint it and have a hard time choosing the right color. I would like to make it cozy and warm, we have a bay window but the room is on the darker side and does not get much of the daylight due to the big tree in front. Any suggestions!!! Thank you.

You might want to go on line and look at the Restoration Hardware Paints.

They have a group called "Flax" with a paint in that selection called "Latte" and another called "cappuchino"......these are slightly more warmish browns but with a grey appearance.
They also have a selection called "Slate" with "stone" and "ash"....these are truly gray.

i have found that their colors are always lovely and work well together.

The lack of natural light is pushing the color cool. Whatever direction you go, paint poster board the color and try out in the room, moving to different areas over different times of day. Deep, interesting colors will change with changing light.

Have you taken a look at the Farrow & Ball site? They have great colors, superb paint, and a lot of on-line color combos and tools to use. They'll send you a free color card too.
