    a piece of flat trim which lines up from your railing, or if you are planning any type of gallery wall, you could put a big piece of artwork over where it joins...but that might be a bit weird .:)

    You could paint a wide boarder that incorporates both colors, that way it will not feel like two colors on one wall.

    I agree with the suggestion of the flat trim, or moulding, to extend the line of the railing. I have done this in the same situation and it looks great.

    Go with one or the other on that wall but not both which looks silly. Another idea is to paint alternating blue and green stripes assuming they coordinated.

    Trim it out if your going to use the 2 colors . A clean line of color to color is just not doing anything but bringing a person to the line as a focal point. :)

    One colour to unify the space , will make it look larger too

    Lovely choice of colors. Why not pint that wall to match your trim color? That makes it an accent wall and no conflict of dominant colors. Whatever you do, please post an "after" shot-OK?

    I had this same issue in my first house. I wanted a Victorian red dining room but it shared a wall with the great room. We bought a decorative column that was flat on one side & painted it white to match the crown molding & baseboards. Red to the right and yellow to the left. It looked great. That was 2002 but I may be abe to find a picture if you are interested. Good luck!
