What color to paint?

8trishFebruary 6, 2013
I am replacing the carpeting with Bruce gunstock hardwood flooring. Can't decide on paint color. I want to remain light as the color will be carried through entire first floor. I want a neutral color that will also allow trim to show. Please help!

No doubt you will purchase a rug for this sunny warm space. Take your lead from that. Beautiful room.

Hi---check into SW 7037 Balanced Beige and SW 6079 Diverse Beige. Definitely add a rug to break up the all the wood once the floors are installed. The colors I suggested are light/medium... Your space is LARGE enough to accept the deeper hues... Hope this is helpful. Good Luck!

Try SW7036 -Accessible Beige or if you want something different - SW6205 - Comfort Gray - it's a Gray-Green-Blue - very livable color, both are from Sherwin Williams Coastal Cool collection.

I like a little bit of creamy yellow to accent all the wood, I just did hardwoods, and the color sure made it look richer

Take a look at Sherwin Williams' "August moon" - it's a gorgeous warm neutral that is somewhere between buttery yellow and beige and has an amazing tendency to go whatever direction you want: can be pastel, can be earthy, can be classic, can be funky. A fantastic neutral...can't get enough of it!
