Accent Wall
amcox_usDecember 31, 2012
I want to make one wall my accent wall. I'm debating between the wall with the fireplace and the wall with the windows. Hmmm?

The third picture is the color that I plan to use.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

Hi---I say the recessed areas of the FP wall. You may want to check Hancock Gray amd Providence Olive-both Ben Moore. See how the colors look with your cabs, counters, and carpet. Good Luck!

Thanks! I will have dark hardwood floors throughout the first floor.

That is such a beautiful shade of gray. Do you know what color it is? Rever Pewter? If I were you, I'd use it in the entire space. The room is large and that color with your hardwood floors would look awesome!

Color: Benjamin Moore Berkshire Beige

I just didn't want to make the room too dark with painting the walls with with the really dark floors.

It's Berkshire Beige, not Revere Pewter. Yes, it's a pretty color. I think it will look nice, but do check the others too. [houzz=

I love that color. Here are other spaces: Palmetto Bluff - Private Residence 1 (love the mirror), Palmetto Bluff - Private Residence 2, Breakfast Room, and Master Bedroom.

Here is another photo with dark floors: Stair.

I would do a white ceiling and white trim. You could also paint the fireplace chimney white and the wall facing the windows white. It depends on the furniture selection, too. Most of the pictures show white and light colored upholstery.

I agree with Natalie about the accent wall in the recessed niche beside the fireplace wall.

I would do just the opposite and highlight the fire place. Darker colors visually push the wall away. I think that darker on each side would make the fireplace stand out to much.

The entire first floor will be dark hardwood floors. I want the kitchen and family rooms to have two different colors, but a shade or two off from one another.

With ten windows providing a substantial amount of light, you will find that the same color placed on all walls will show differently on each wall at different times of the day. You will get a two shade differentiation in the family room regardless of what's happening in the kitchen. I suggest you

Sorry, I hit the Submit button my mistake. As I was saying...
I suggest you put the color you want for an evening environment and then put samples on all 4 walls. During the daylight hours, stand back so you can see at least 3 walls at once in order to see the color variations. You may not need an accent wall.

I also do not want to take way from the windows, by over powering it with too much dressing. I'm thinking about just blinds.

Your windows are an architectural element in addition to providing natural light. You are correct in not wanting to interfere with this. If anything, blinds are the way to go...it looks as though they are installed now. I have to believe they are on remote control (at least the second level).
