Decorating & Furniture/Color choice
I am at a loss at what colors to paint my kitchen/living room areas. I have a small town home, total square footage of 1095. I'm guessing the down stairs is around 500 sf, this area includes the kitchen, small dining area and living room. I have khaki furniture and would like to go with neutral colors that compliment my furniture. I would like to paint the kitchen one color and the living room another to divide the space. I'm planning on putting my home on the market within the year so I also need colors that appeal to the majority. I want to pick the correct colors now so I do not have to repaint later. What colors would you suggest?
As you already have khaki as a colour in your furniture, you could use that as the inspiration for your decor.
Look at the paint selection here:
Let's say for example that Celtic Moor 3 is the nearest shade to that of your furniture. I would then suggest you choose from that line of colours with the exact choice being based upon how much colour you like and how small/dark/light your space is. Go for Celtic Moor 6 if you want to be as light and neutral as possible but still keep the tone that matches your furniture.
Personally, I would maybe go for Celtic Moor 6 for three of the walls and Celtic Moor 2 for a feature wall/fireplace or alcove which always adds a bit interest to a room which otherwise could turn out a bit bland.
If you look at a colour wheel:
you will see that green is directly opposite orange and that would be my suggestion if you are looking for something to liven it all up a bit. With thoughts of moving, I wouldn't suggest you paint anything orange but a few cushions or pillows on the sofa and a rug or two in orange would really lift the colour scheme.
