I would steer clear of yellows and go for a really nice neutral in the halls (paint that chair rail the same as the walls or remove it altogether), and I would keep that great picture you have over the sofa but put it in the dining room and then get some bright blue and white Ikat pillows for the sofa. Then I would suggest a really deep but bright blue for both the living room and dining room. Here are some Benjamin Moore colours you can always colour match to whatever paint line you prefer.

halls - Revere Pewter - HC-172
living and dining - Bellbottom Blues - CSP-655

For over the sofa, you can put that picture from the dining room or go for some black frames with white mats and colourful pictures in a collage of sizes.

I would love to see other pops of colour in the pillows as well.

The chair rail is the 'white moulding' you have at chair back height in the halls. That should be painted out. I didn't even notice the baby chair. ;)

Yes, a deep royal blue will be gorgeous with all the wood and warm tones and will blend nicely with what you have going on in the kitchen. It's just paint - give it a whirl... and post the updated photos!

now i get what you are saying about chair rail - I didnt know that was what it was called. I know ....very 80's has got to go. BIG TIME...about the blue- im scared -we don't get a lot of light though in DR and LR. The space is also very small so I dont want the room to get closed in. I will look at it FOR SURE though and keep my mind open. Any other suggestions if I want a lighter colour on walls in DR and LR - OR maybe using the royal blue as an accent wall - i think i would like that or is painting one wall a deeper colour and others light neutral pretty outdated? I know chevron is the big print that one can find anywhere glad you suggested something different like the IKAT - is it trendy right now or will I have to check out etsy to find it you think? i looooove that the suggestion is different than chevron THANK YOU !! Thanks
