I want to paint my L-shaped living/dining room a distinct color (soft mauve), but I don’t want to run the color down the hall into the rest of the apartment. Where do I stop?
The office is pale aqua, and the 2 bedrooms are pale yellow. The doors to those rooms usually remain closed.
Should I paint the hallway a lighter version of the living room mauve? Or leave it as builder’s white? Is there another option?
We usually paint halls that run off the living room, the same color as the living room, but it's really up to you…
