Decorating & Furniture/Paint color
I've just moved to a new apartment. The living room and dining area are 1 open space and currently the room looks very empty. My couches are dark brown leather and my dining table and chairs are black. What color should I paint the walls? I want something to make the place look smaller and cozy. Can I paint 2 walls in different colors or should i stick to 1?
Please forgive me for not answering you sooner. It's a holiday here in Canada and I sent your message to my other computer but didn't have a chance to answer.
In order to make your room appear smaller you need a dark, warm colour. This will advance the wall psychologically closing it in. I think black and tan look very nice together and will also tie in with the brown. Another colour that would look very nice is a deep ginger. Take a look at CIL/ICI Palm Springs tan 20YY 39/130 and gingerglow 10YY 42/460. Hope this helps and good luck :)
