I'm painting what is now my mud/laundry room (in the 1st pic, using the color palette)
I want the inside part of the door to look as in pic #2.
I'm hoping someone can throw some ideas my way on the room and door trim color part..
Thanks

    Van Gogh said, "How lovely is yellow. It is the color of the sun" I think a llitle sun in a laundry room would be nice. The grey for trim would be a soothing companion.

    Remember, dark colors make a room look smaller - opposite is true for light colors.

    I believe you can use a gel stain to achieve that look.

    I see two possibilities ... all dependent on the rooms lighting: One, if room has great natural light = sage green walls, gold trim with brown door. Two, if its a dark and artificially lit room = gold walls, red trim and brown door.

    Two tips I will give: Take advantage of the sample cans of paint. Usually satin finish available only, but if enough for small wall or trim costs $1 or $2, hoorah. And no rule against getting 2 (maximum) in same color. Tip Two has worked great in my family. Don't paint entire room in same shade. A on wall 1, B on wall 2, mix together to create your own C shade. A different slant, I just did small bathroom in same shade except for wall above shower. A small can was plenty of paint in an accent color. It lengthened a small room.
