I absolutely love blue and am trying to incorporate more of it into my home. A few years ago, I painted an accent wall in Tranquil Aqua. Now that I’m redecorating the living room, I’m reconsidering the color.
My goal is a restful yet classic, sophisticated room. Here are a few color palettes that I’ve put together using an online tool.
Scenario 1: St. Bart’s accent wall with Urban Putty on the living room walls. The hallway is Neutral Ground with Extra White on bottom half to simulate board and batten wainscoting ( a future project.)
Scenario 2: The same color scheme as above except the living room walls are Kilim Beige which is what they are currently.
Scenario 3: Tranquil Aqua accent wall (current color) with Urban Putty in the rest of the Living Room with Neutral Ground in the hallway with board and batten painted in Extra White. (current trim color in the rest of the house.)
Scenario 4: Tranquil Aqua accent wall with Kilim Beige in living room….both what I currently have. With the hallway being painted in Neutral Ground and trimmed out in board and batten painted in Extra White (current trim color in the rest of the house.)
I’m decided on the hallway. The difference in Urban Putty and Kilim Beige is subtle. I think Urban Putty may be more of a greige while Kilim Beige is tan. They are both warm neutrals, which I prefer. I think the “it” factor is in the details, so I’m willing to repaint to get the look I want.
I think I know which color palette I prefer, but I’d love to hear your thoughts. Take into consideration that the decor has changed. I’m looking more at the mood the colors create.
See you in class,
