My "pop" color will be a celery green. Thanks for the idea Lauryl Kays.

My favorite color scheme is, really, anything that does NOT include colors with yellow undertones. Yes, that knocks orange right out of the picture (pun intended), but there are great reds with blue undertones, and even a few cooler yellows. My go-to triad is sage green, denim or slate blue, and any cool off-white, with bits of plum or lavender tossed in to sweeten the mix. Black and white is quite overwhelming to me in any proportion, and while I don't do pink, I can tolerate dusty rose fairly well. Softening almost any color by adding a bit of gray, in my book, is usually a good thing. And I don't do pastels - ever! Thanks for giving this food for thought!

I painted one wall in my living room and my kitchen Olive Branch Green. The rest of the rooms surrounding it are painted Bavarian Cream. I have Burgandy leather furniture. It looks really good, but I am tired of the yellowish cream color on the other walls...What other colors could I paint the main walls? My house faces north and south.
