What color to paint my living room that goes with connecting yellow dinning room.

Brenda YoungAnna Le BlancMichelle R


My dinning room and living room connect by a large arched doorway. I have painted the dinning room a Glad Yellow from Sherwin Williams. I really like it but now I don't know what to paint the large living room. I do not want it yellow too. Any ideas?

    My living room is a very pale green....if I remember right I think the color was called "haymarket" have been 5 years or so since we far we are still happy with it.

    Hi Michelle, my dining room is yellow also and for my living room I split it in half with a border and painted a slightly different yellow on top and a deep burgandy on the bottom. I honestly feel every color works well wth yellow but if you really want no yellow in your living room, go with your next favorite color or pick a shade from your dining room. Try to put a touch of yellow in your living room... pillows, flowers or a throw blanket- this way the two rooms will stand on their own, yet still flow together.

    It depends on the shade of yellow you used and the colour of the furniture in the adjoining room. If it's pale you can go with a pale shade of green or even a lavender. Can you post a picture of the dining room?

    So many colors go with yellow as its prime, I guess you should paint the adjoining room in a complimentary color chosen by the predominant decor colors in the room. Or choose a favorite from the opposite side of the color wheel and replace the accessories to go with your new fab color choice.
