We are re-painting my whole apartment.
Just to give an idea of colors that were already chosen:
Bathrooms are going to be a light grey
Master bedroom- lavender purple
Kids bedroom- light green and beige

And now we need help deciding the correct color for the kitchen/living room and hallway (which is basically one continuous space).

Ideas?
Attaching an image of our living room so you can see the amazing curtains my mom made for me (that the color of the room shoudl not contrast with).

Thanks hometalk!

    Because that furniture is so dark I would stick with a lighter color. To be conservative, I would use any color in the beige family. Or, you can add a pop of color this could be just about any color as long as it is a pale and goes with those pretty curtains your mom made.

    To go with the other colors, I would choose a light gray and then buy an accent rug and pillows for the couchs for the living room to bring in other colors.

    I agree with grey. Perhaps a darker grey. In spite of white or lighter colors seemingly make a room appear larger, the darker colors make a room appear warmer, cozier, without adding smallness or closing in the room. I just did this with our living, going from light to dark and painting all the woodwork trim white. Everything pops and it's just so cozy and warm in there now. Pillows for the couch should be color of the curtains plus grey plus black. Accent colors could be opposite, too, like lighter greens. If you get an area rug, I'd go with a color as close to the walls as possible in order to create flow and oneness. I'd even take the fan blades down and paint those white, too. Best wishes!
