Need help with coloring for wainscoting...NO LIGHT COLORS!
S East
February 20, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We have 4 small children which means white wainscoting is definitely out. We thought a dark warm color such as Wild Truffle by Glidden might look ok????The cabinets are a shaker cherry color, tile is rustic earthtones and the wall above the wainscoting is painted kraft paper tan...any thoughts are appreciated...we are completely at a loss as to what to paint the wainscoting.

You might consider painting the wainscoting a truffle color and leave the upper molding in white like this combination.

I like that then we wouldn't be concerned about the white window trim it would all mesh....it just so frustrating we agree on a color and then put it against the wainscoting and hate it.....8 months of this....

If u go darker on the wainscoting, I would do a lighter wall color, and leave the trim white. Like in Micigammemom's pic.

could you suggest a color? so the kraft paper is too dark? there are so many variations on cream, do you know of one that would do well with the Glidden dark Truffle?

I cannot really see your tan color very well...sorry if I spoke out of turn..I was thinking a lighter color on top...but sounds like u plan to leave the walls the same color they are now, which is a lighter color....

I believe the dark one is the dark truffle...the lighter color on the swatch would look good..on the top part of the walls. I am sorry I cannot see enough of your current color to say anything about if it would appear to work or not with the truffle.

would door frames and window frames also be white? Crown molding?

I think you should leave your trim white, including the strip on the top of the wainscoting...as in pic
