oh! I should say, HALF STRENGTH para silver fox...the living room and dining room are slightly lighter than the rest of the house - otherwise, the whole house is the same colour

The entire house was painted the same colour:
para paint silver fox P2238-4

BUT, the living room, dining room, and kitchen were painted "half strength"... a lighter version of the other rooms....(I don't know what half strength is, it was a suggestion offered to us by the contractor, and we jumped at it!)

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shannon and her husband had a designer come in to help with the initial furniture selection and art in the rest of the home. The dining room and living room were her biggest projects. The designer offered her top 5 picks in terms of sofa, coffee table, dining room table, dining room chairs, light fixture and sideboard. Some things were love-at-first-sight, but in other cases it took months to find just the right piece. The two enjoyed working with a professional designer because she educated them about design, shared all her secrets and was willing to keep going back to the drawing board to capture their tastes perfectly. When the rooms were finished, Shannon was ready to infuse them with her own sensibilities and make them feel less staged and more lived in.
Start with the art. One large piece, about two-thirds the size of the mantel itself, will get you almost all the way there. Then layer on additional elements in smaller sizes, ideally in complementary colors or themes.
