Decorating & Furniture/painting my livingroom
Dear Rachel, I world like to paint my drabby white walls and get some kind of color scheme going to make it warmer and cozier. We have an oriental rug
with different shades of greens and would like to work around that idea. My husband thinks that only a light shade is good but i would like to make it darker. I might add that the greens I am refering to must be more foresty ( or natural)not limey or st. patrick's day green. What is my best bet. Also I have one of those textured stucco kind of ceilings.
Is it wise to keep it white? thnx for your help,kat
If your rug is all green I would try to choose a different color than green for the walls. Your wall color is the main color for that space and to much of one color can seem drab, finding a color that compliments green or another color that is in the room would be a better choice. If you really want to paint green then I would choose a med tone neutral green that is similar to the color in the rug. This would be a comprimise for the both of you and wont seem to dark or to light. If you have tall walls and want to bring the scale down then paint the ceiling as well. If you want the ceiling to feel taller then keep it white. If you want the room to feel wider then paint the ceiling the color of the rug and and paint walls a light color. Hope this helps you out and if you want to do another color besides green and dont know what color to choose, then email me pictures of your living space to firstname.lastname@example.org. and I will help you find a different paint color.
