Wall paint color dilemma
etomme
November 15, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I am trying to choose a medium neutral color for walls. It is an open floor plan with contiguous great room, dining room and kitchen spaces. The great room is 22'x29' with 12' ceilings. The back wall is glass, facing south. The fireplace will be dry stacked white Austin stone. Flooring will be Shaw Panorama, color Dusk. Sherwin Williams color Bittersweet Stem looks too yellow and pink. SW Outerbanks, too green, and SW Portico too green and gray. Any suggestions?

Dclostboy, Is that seriously your home? Because if it is, I am so jealous! Fortuny chandelier? Be still my beating heart...

@Karemore55, Yes...my house...it's a historic landmark. Fortunately, the chandelier did not transfer on sale...not really my style and I felt some of the house needed a bit more formality (was decorated very contemporary / MCM.

Try Sherwin Williams Canvas Tan. We have Outerbanks in our formals and Khaki Shade in our kitchen. We agree that they show "green", but in our two story den with dark hardwoods we used Canvas Tan. Great color!

Thank you for your suggestion! Will try that color. I also believe we may need to consider painting different colors in different rooms/areas as each has different exposures and character. Also, i think Outer Banks is a beautiful color I and don't mind the green tint, but don't think I want it throughout. Thanks!
