We selected Martha Steward Drab for the walls trim and then mixed it with white to lighten the walls

The room is about 11' wide by 13' long- the space that you see. (It's about 13' x 13' to the wall behind the TV built-in cabinet.) Yes, they are french doors and they open out to the front porch.

what are the colors in this room - I want the same effect, my house has a LOT of natural light, and trying to find a neutral beige for the walls now, Valspar Khaki which i would normally consider a darker color for walls is not dark on a sample on my walls, but in order to paint the baseboards, window trim and interior doors darker, does anyone have any ideas on shades? I am open to ideas, i just want to stay fairly neutral, Thanks!

Sorry, just seeing your initial question. Valspar Thrush might be a good match. Best of luck to you!

Trim paint darker than wall paint? - Building a new home and considering painting baseboards, door casings, and interior doors darker than walls. Specifically, thinking of using SW 7628 Windfresh White for walls and SW 7641 Collonade Gray for trim and doors. Floors are rift-sawn white oak with slight gray wash stain. Ceilings are 9 ft. and house is filled with light. Contemporary take on Prairie style on acreage in Colorado foothills. Any advice on paint colors is welcome.

I ended up using the two Sherwin Williams colors as described in my original question throughout the house and am very happy with them. Contrast between wall color and trim color is considerably less than that in this photo.

Hi there! We are so happy to find this image because we are designing a narrow media room right now. I just want to make sure the dimensions quoted above include the built ins?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This cozy family room proves that comfortable rooms needn't be vast. Smart custom cabinetry and media storage keep things from looking cluttered.The room opens to the front porch, part of Heydt's careful placement of rooms in relation to the outdoor spaces. "The connection to the landscape was very intentional. The site is very beautiful, with large, old-growth redwood trees. We wanted to make sure to feature the home's connection to the site through the use of strategically placed windows and glass French doors," says Heydt. Thus, the family room opens to the front porch, the kitchen opens to the patio, and the bedrooms have private balconies that enjoy views of the best parts of the yard.
David Duncan Livingston added this to How to Compose Your Shot for Stunning Home Photography
Only frame what you want the viewer to pay attention to. Good composition makes a room look spacious and inviting and leads the eye around the entire space. Tip: A wide-angle lens will create a certain amount of distortion. To lessen the "fishbowl" effect, make sure your camera isn't too close to any furniture. It also can help to look straight onto your subject, like this photo.
