QUESTION FROM A READER


Hi 
I was wondering if you would suggest 2 colors: 1 for the lower half of our hallway and one for our living room. I used gray owl in my kitchen which opens to my family room, painted sea haze.

Sea Haze BM

The sea haze family room is connected to an open hallway in which I have painted november rain above a chair rail (looking to paint another color on the bead board below but don’t know what to do there - it does not always receive natural light). This hall way/entryway (november rain and ???) connects to the living room. From the kitchen (gray owl), you are able to view the living room (color???). The living room is located on the north side of the house; however the windows in this room face east and west. What paints should I use for a pretty smooth transition in these areas? All of my woodwork is painted benjamin moore dove white. I have wood floors that are a medium shade. For accent colors, I love blues, greens and reds.

Thank you so much for your help. I am struggling with this and would appreciate your input.
Very best wishes,
Missy

Missy, you have chosen some lovely colors, but maybe too many.  I think sometimes we tend to think each separate space requires a separate color, but actually reusing some of these colors will pull your design together and help it flow.  You could certainly use Sea Haze on the bottom portion of the wall.

In the living room, since you like blues, greens and reds, you could reuse one of the colors above, or pull in one with a blue undertone.  Here are a few to try.  These soft colors should all work nicely together.
