Open floor plan help with paint colors
elisad77
December 30, 2012
Excuse the mess. I have 3 boys :)
Anyway I have an open plan and a friend helped me pick colors. I love the warmness but I can't stand the choppiness of it. I've halted anymore decorating because I'm not sure about the paint. The yellow room I have a big dark brown sofa, i just had new floors put in, and I have wine and brown curtains. I just bought them an can not exchange them so I need to work with those. How do I create a warm flowing house???

Without being in the room to see the best places to start and stop colors it is hard to make that decision. I would however not have that extreme color variation.

The 3 'bright' colors you have are fighting with each other. If you are looking for a more 'cheerful' shade, I'd suggest picking one and go with slight variation in other rooms.

OH MY. I would bring everything back to almost a neutral color in the beige family. I don't like the soffit brown color in the kitchen either. Houzzers can help you with paint if that is what you want to do. It is only a suggestion from me. I love your floors and would bring in warm colors in pillows, lamps, rugs and accessorizes.

The color are definitely not working well together the tones are off. I would pick the color you enjoy the most of the three and work with that color in accessories, perhaps some fabrics and paint the rest a muted shade of either grey or warm browns . Use the feature color on the far wall so the eye is drawn toward it. if the other rooms have accessories with that color and hue the rooms will look more balanced and flow better. Its a pretty house!

I love the green with the floor I don't know what neutral color to use in the dining and living area. I'd like to use different shades but the dining area goes up the stairs and I don't want it to feel cramped and dark.

For the first time ever I am going to suggest going with a beige. A very light beige or a antique linen. I think since one space flows in to the other it would be best if you eliminate the choppiness through a unified moderate color and then bring in bursts of color in furniture, pillows, linens, art etc.

The existing colors are definitely not working together. I would keep the kitchen color since you seem to have the most area covered in this. The rest of the rooms I would paint in a beige tone. Either of the beige colors in your palette would work. Like the "Bittersweet Stem" or "Outerbanks." Both would look great with your floors. I know you like the green, but it's just not working with the other colors. You could bring the green color into the palette with accents. Good Luck !!
