    Painting is truly personal taste, I have open concept living areas and painted different colors.If you like it go for it.

    Of course! Make color fun and different. Just please use colors that work well together and try to carry the colors into the rooms with pillows, knick-knacks, etc.

    sure I have a white ash kitchen with a white quartz top and patterned splashe back. And oak solid wood living and dinning . And it's beautiful.

    I think so but I would suggest they be "in the same family" - perhaps one room a shade or two darker - I like rooms to "flow" one into the other.

    We did it (kitchen to dining living room) both warm colors (Mississippi Mud-Harvest Brown) It flows really well, and different times of the day (lightning) You can't be sure if they are different colors or if your eyes are playing tricks on you. We love the look.

    use an accent wall same as the kitchen and dining and paint the other walls solid basic color that is lighter tint or generic

    I would go for a change of 'hue' not color. The lighter hue would be for the room that is the main focus.

    Painting areas a different color will leave a chopped up look. Johnchip (above) has the right idea. What can make a difference and be cohesive are the accent colors you use in each room. Example: you have pillows with gray, white and coral. Use the gray as the main color with white and bits of coral in the first room. In the second room use coral as the main color with bits of white and gray. And then third room use white as the main color with bits of coral and gray. The formula is 60, 30, 10. Remember you can use different patterns as long as they have the same color combination.

    I was thinking darker, since the back is all windows. There is a lot of natural light.

    You're so welcome. You can google, "cohesive open floor plan colors." There you will find hundreds and hundreds of ideas along with really good information. Take your time and pin the pics you like....but NOT at one sitting! After you are done, lay it aside for a couple of days. Then go back through all you have chosen and delete the ones you do not like. It is amazing how what you love seems to come to the surface. Works every time!

    Thanks. I've actually decided to go with SW Mindful Gray in living, dining & kitchen.

    I had an open space kitchen, dinning room and living room all wrapping around each other. I made the living room peach walls, dinning room soft baby yellow and the kitchen egg shell white witch joined into the living room from the opposite side from the dinning room... needless to say it looked cool, in more ways than one. plus I had an island kitchen sink and that I put a wine glass rack on and it blended right in.
