My home is a small open concept. Kitchen with oak cupboards & an island behind the island is the dining area & to the right is the living room & den. We love the colour it is but have done some upgrades. It’s a golden colour and we would like a change. Thank you

    I'd like to suggest Valspar's Oyster Pearl #7002-2. It's a very nice soft neutral color that will work well with your decor. Best of luck.

      Thank you very much for the great suggestion? I really like the colour and going to get a sample to see how it will look. 😁

  • How do you feel about green? Not a grass green but a dusty sage or olive toned green? Would look good with your cabinets and beautiful existing furnishings. Your home is very lovely! People either love or dislike green for some reason. I always start with paint color chips and tape those up and live with them for a bit, then narrow down to 3 to 6 colors then purchase samples and paint on various walls to narrow it down. How about using a color wheel? See if these links help you.

    I agree with Diana, an egg shell color on the walls will go great with your décor, with perhaps some accents from the colors in the rug would be great.

      Love your suggestion! I am truly terrible at picking colour, painting is my worst nightmare 🤪. I’m going to have paint samples everywhere lol. Thank you so very much.

    Blue-green (aqua, teal, sea, turquoise) is my favorite color, and I like medium blue, too. Try as I might, every room in my house has blue in it. Our house is mostly open concept, and I like how the various types of blue flow through the house. You could choose your favorite colors and feature them in various hues and shades through your house, too. They can even be the accessory colors if you go with another background like beige, gray, some shade of white, or brown. Please take photos and post your progress on Hometalk. I’d love to see what you go with. ☺️

      Great suggestion, thank you so very much. This is the first time I have ever gone on a site for help and I’m very happy I did. I honestly didn’t know where to begin and now have some amazing options 😁. Can’t wait until it’s done and I will post pictures 😁

    I would paint the kitchen a color that coordinates with the two rooms that they are adjoining for continuity and flow. Or at the very least, paint it a color that picks up one of the colors in the countertops. You have a lot going on in this kitchen so I would work with a color you already have, not add another.

    Thank you so very much for your suggestion, I really like the colour it is but was thinking for a little change to go a shade lighter but wasn’t sure. My husband is a painter amping other things lol & pained someone‘s living room & hallway and told me about the colour & he liked it very much! He brought the sample home & it was our exact colour lol. I’m beyond excited with all the suggestion, colours I would never think of etc. So happy I asked a question for the first time 😁. Amazing people to take the time to help. I can’t stop smiling
