Color change needed!

jjcaprioFebruary 26, 2013
Looking to change the color in our living area. Currently have one color, but with the chair rail thought 2 colors would be better. Based on the photos, looking for some color choices?

Like the 3rd one, but do you think using two different colors above and below chair rail could work? What about the inside of book shelves?

Don't use two colors - it will just make the room look choppy.

So same color all the way around? Won't that be really dark? What about around fireplace. What are the color names?

You could wallpaper the bottom half and paint the walls and inside the shelves using one of the colours from the wallpaper. There are some great wallpapers out there www.designbycolour.net

SPACIALISTS. I am pretty proficient with photoshop, but I am very new to remodeling my house and picking colors. How do you make those sample images with colors that are actually real paint colors?

I think those apps are at the paint company websites.
