    Thank you. THe chair rail is only on 1 wall. It has no raised trim panels. THe stairs are behind the couch and they are open from the living room. The wall/corner is separate but can be seen from the dining room and living room I guess I will try Ben Moore Pale Sea Mist if you do not have another paint color suggestion. I appreciate all of the advice. I can't wait to paint it!

    If it isn't too difficult, an option then is to just remove the chair rail,since it is only on one wall. Dark linen 2147-60 is a slightly lighter version of this, which works well with browns, maple wood, and grays.

    Thank you. The surround has a mixture of painted and stained cherry with Arts and Crafts details in the trim accents. The mantle top is solid cherry with a stain. The legs are a cherry veneer stained. Hope this helps.

    Thank you so much for the reply Margaret! I will find those 2 colors. I don't have any furniture yet for this room. Gray carpet. Do you think BM's Gray mirage 2142-50 would work?

    thank you for your response. What is the name of the color of the walls in your pic? I do have another question if you would be so kind to advise on. My house was built in 1940. The dining/living room ceiling has a lowered "edge" about 10" wide all the way around the rooms. (see pic) How would you suggest painting this? Should I treat it like crown molding and keep it white and the use 2 different shades of whatever green (Neon Celery) for the wall and ceiling ?

    I believe the color on the walls was Benjamin Moore Pale Sea MIst 2147-50. Without actually seing the space and other elements in person, it looks like the lowered area is stucco like the ceiling.I would treat the lowered edge as part of the ceiling color. If the edge was a smooth look, then I would have used the color of your trim.

    Sorry, the coffee table has been discontinued. I do have local furniture makers than can duplicate something similar.

    Thank you for your interest. The window manufacturer is PeachTree. http://www.peachtreedoor.com/

    Cottage Style which has the mullions on the upper sash only, double hung, wood interior, clad exterior. Unfortunately, I do not recall the size. The trim around the window was a 1"x4" with a backband.

    Your Sherwin Williams paint dealer should be able to color match Benjamin Moore. You may want to pick up a swatch of the Benjamin Paint prior, since colors can look very different from a computer monitor to the actual color on the wall.
