Accent wall paint color

 
 
Reply Fri 2 Aug, 2013 10:08 am
My living room has dark hardwood floors, tan couch, and two navy blue chairs. The decor/pictures are beach themed with lots of shades of blues and sand. I want to paint an accent wall where the fireplace is located, keeping the trip around it white. Should I do the accent wall in a lighter, complimentary shade as the navy chairs or should I try to match it? The room has bay windows in the front and glass doors in the back leading to the deck and is a fairly large room. Thanks!

Believe it or not, wallpaper is making a comeback. Try it out.

@havensinva,
I think I would go with a mellow sunny yellow. It's such a happy color and it looks great with navy. Plus, it fits great with a beach inspired room.

What color are the other walls?

Color makes walls attractive. In my opinion should finished wooden floors have such color inconsistencies? Staining wood should normally look uniform in color, not multiple shade differences in every other piece of wood, right? If u are painting a wall that has white trim...tape off white trim....then take flat ceiling white paint and lightly paint over the tape where it meets the wall...just a light brush of paint. It will dry in 10 minutes and the ceiling white will seal your tape so there is no bleed thru of the wall color on your white trim.....cut in the wall color over the tape lightly...let dry for 10 minute then put a 2nd heavier coat and after a few minutes remove the tape. Nice and crisp lines gives such a beautiful look.

It is recommended if you are using the furniture with dark color, you should go opposite with the wall color. I think you should go with any of these colors : grey, green or pink.

@havensinva,
I think the wall should be light, since the hardwood floors are already dark and you have navy blue chairs. It might be a bit too dark if you match with a dark shade too. Also, if you make your walls lighter, it'll give your house a bigger look! Hope that helped.

@havensinva,
It will be better if you try to match it.
