I am considering gold in our family room ... and beyond.
I am considering painting the family room a gold, a shade lighter than what you see on the fireplace. This colour would also go down the hall and a very tiny amount into our kitchen. The kitchen opens into the dining and living rooms so I have to consider them also. The furniture in the dining room is black with glass table top ... so I think the gold would go nicely in there. I'm not sure where I should stop with the gold ... or if I should just do the whole area. I like my rooms dark, but not to the point where they would look depressing. The view is north facing. The living room is the room that gets the bright light from the East in the mornings. The family room gets zero sun.
I appreciate that you've taken the time to share your thoughts.
