Help with my basement color scheme
November 4, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I am getting ready to repaint our basement. I will not be able to replace the carpeting for a few more years. Unfortunately, the carpet is an earthy green and kind of dreary. The wall color is currently a paler version of the carpeting, and there are a few accent walls painted a darker yellowish-green. Everyone in the family is tired of the green basement. Is there a wall color I could use that would downplay the green carpet? I've tried some lighter grays but everything seems to clash with it. I'm wondering if I have to go with a cream color, but my husband would like something bolder. The basement gets very little natural light. We generally use Benjamin Moore paint. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
