Need a Third Colour- Help Please

mmlarmondFebruary 27, 2013
I am painting my house. I have selected two paint colours and need a third that would be complimentary for a room in my open concept home that gets a lot of natural light. I have selected "Weimaraner" from Benjamin Moore for my hallways, staircase and kitchen. I have also selected "Sparrow" also by Benjamin Moore, for my family room. Does anyone have any suggestions for a 3 colour that would be complimentary to the colours I have already selected? Thanks!

I believe you will need a lighter color other wise it will look too dark.
Are you going for a sophisticated look?
Why not visit the BM site. I am sure they have colors that would complement this palette.
If your looking for a lighter color you might consider onion 2145-60. There are many others.

would you consider a yellow or green as an accent color to liven up the more subdued colors you've chosen? The green in the SUBMIT button below is a nice green. the yellow can be pale or bright.

I guess I should mention my funiture is white, that is why I as thinking a more saturated colour. However despite having a lot of windows and natural light- I will admit making my home appear "too dark" is a concern of mine.

What about Perfect Greige by Sherwin-Williams? or Maybe even Rockport Gray by BM?
