The window treament is a light cocoa brown.Theyalso have a fireplace that is white tile and black front. What colors would you paint the room?

Hi Lori,

Since the floorplan is an open concept plan all the walls should be painted the same.  Based on what you've told me, your daughter could use a cocoa brown, a medium to dark shade of tan, or a pale sage green.  Taupe is an option since it's a blend of browns and greys.  My favorite taupe is Glidden's Toasty Grey.

Visit my web site at: Decor: I've written about it, planned it, designed it and colored it, and I've never stopped loving it. It's not what you spend, or who made it, it's how it makes you feel.


College, advertising, public relations, marketing, free-lance writing and a plethora of creative endeavors have led me here. As an entrepreneur in decorative product design, I learned the hard way how tough it can be to be in business for yourself. A stint at a law firm taught me humility too. Some three thousand questions ago, I wondered if I could really help. Obviously, I'm still here and still taking your questions. God Bless You!
