Need paint color ideas!!
kisak
January 26, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I am desperate to get rid of the gold paint in the dining/connected sitting room, but I cannot find a suitable color! Thought I'd found a great warm grey, but it clashes with the ugly bar cabinets in the dining room that my husband wants to keep. I am having a white wooden mantel built on fireplace with shelves on either side, so wanted a nice contrast with that and exposed brick. Any suggestions would be so welcome !!

Hi kisak! Will be back w/some color suggestions but had a question. Is that Uttermost's New Orleans pendant in your dining area?

It's not... it's from Ballard Designs. :)

I would paint your fireplace white and do your walls in a gray. Put up stainless fan maybe. Do a lighter gray paint on walls.

Why not paint the cabinets white? They will still function the way your husband wants them to, but will blend in with the style you are going for.

I think the grey would be the nicest choice for this space. The bar cabinets could be painted white or black to fit in with the rest of the space as well. I really love this color pallet!

I love the greys in A Class Above's pics!

You could go with a grey and paint hubby's cabinets either white as Janis suggested or black like your buffet & table.

P.S. I've attached a pic of the New Orleans pendant. It could be the same - Ballard sells the Uttermost brand too. If it is the same & you'd like to be pictured in our "Rooms Worth a View" section when you're done, let me know! :)

Thanks so much, everyone! Grey it is!! And I had a guy come in today to price out painting the bar cabinets... I think I might go with black. Lyvonne, it most definitely is the same pendant... and I'd be honored to be chosen for a "Rooms Worth a View" section, if the final product deems worthy!! :)

You are already off to a fabulous start & you've got great taste so I'm sure it will be more than worthy. :) Keep us updated!

Hi Lyvonne! SO slowly... the carpenter I hired to build a mantel/shelves off of our fireplace had a family emergency to tend to... I'm hoping we'll be all wrapped up by the end of 2013 (ok, sooner, but I'm putting an extra long time frame in my mind so I don't get frustrated by the snail's pace of it all). :)

Glad you chose a wall colour but keep in mind to replace the ceiling fan with something more stylish!

Hi kisak,
I experimented with a few colors. Hope this helps.

All the best!

Sorry it is going slowly and that your carpenter had a family emergency. Setting a longer time frame to avoid frustration is VERY smart! Keep us updated. :)
