Continuation of family room re-do and need color addition advice
patriciarhall
November 23, 2012 in Design Dilemma
originally posted about the entertainment center overpowering the room. From the wonderful advice, I painted it creamy white, added a painted chest for coffee table and new pillows on sofa that reflect upholstry in the room. The wall color is BM Whole Wheat and area rug is drab gold. Now, I want to incorporate the predominate colors from my large painting into the room. With new rug? With accessories?

I'd go for picking them up in the accessories. A couple of pillows, a vase or piece of blown glass. Just a few should be enough to get what you want without overpowering the room.

Forgot to add how lovely your entertainment center looks painted! You did a wonderful job on the whole room.

still under consideration is replacing drapery panels with linen sheers hung higher, relocating the vintage secretary and painting that narrow wall a orange-red and placing a larger plant there also. What do you houzzers think about making the entrance wall (with the small mirror) an accent wall of color from the painting?

creeser, the predominate color in my painting is a orange-red. I haven't identified an actual color chip yet.

I saw that color, but there are golden yellows and a couple of lovely blues as well. I think it would look very nice to do that small wall in the hall in an accent color, but I think the orange red may be a bit too strong for all the other colors you have going. I think the deep golden yellow or one of the blues might work better with your colors. Deep and strong, but doesn't overpower your living room walls.

2 chairs are upholstered in a grey-blue and I painted the coffee table chest in a similar color. Maybe i could go deeper with the inky blue for the entry hall or are u meaning the "hall" in the archway? either one sounds pretty good.

I was looking at the entry hall (I think) with the mirror, but either or both would work! I really love that dark inky blue with the colors you have and then use the orangey red just for a couple of accent knick knacks.

I love that idea. The sofa pillows have that inky blue in them as well. The entry hall definitely needs some love. Painting the one wall inky blue, adding a floating shelf beneath the mirror and adding a rug with some of the muted blues and a bit of orange-red should do the trick! Then, I can add an accessory or two on the floating shelf as well as a spot or two in the family room. Can't wait to go shopping! Thanks so much for thinking with me.

You are so welcome! Most of this you already knew, you just needed to bounce the ideas around. Post some pictures when you're done. I'd love to see it. I know it's going to look great!

I think the style of the furniture is too traditional for this art. You might want to put this painting on the hallway wall.
