Need help with paint color for walls and concrete windowsills

purplehoneypieFebruary 4, 2013
This room will be totally cleared out, staging for sale. Room is 700 sq ft and there are 6 of these window walls. What paint colors should I choose for windows and walls. Also any window covering ideas?

Thinking of a grey to match the stone color with a rich dark grey or some sort of tan/khaki color on the walls, again going for a woodsy look. Do I have to match the walls and the window wells the same color?

I say grey from the stone work as well and I would paint the walls the same colour as the window headers. These are not two areas you want to draw attention too, certainly not in the manner they are now. :) Since you're getting ready to sell I would remove all the pictures you have above the windows as well. I'd like to see the windows bare, it doesn't appear what you have installed is for privacy so I wouldn't worry about future buyers being concerned either. Lovely space.

Thank you so much. How do I tell the difference between a warm grey and a cold looking grey. What about the new Benjamin Moore grey color everyone is talking about? Something_____ Pewter? Am I looking for dark grey or light grey for the walls. Any contrast at all, or just all the same color as windowwells to keep it consistant.

Ask to borrow the Benjamin Moore colour designer sample box and chose your grey that way. You could go darker on the wall but keep it in the same family. I also think that if you use the same colour it will show up differently on the two spaces just given the two substrates
