We just bought a home and have been struggling with choosing a new color for our great room (kitchen/dining/living room/walls going up the stairs/hallway/office with open glass french doors upstairs) in this unique home in the woods. The previous owners had a country style, hence the yellow paint they chose which is set against light pine floors, ceiling, and exposed brick. I, on the other hand, would not describe myself as country. My style is more a mix of earthy, contemporary, cozy, and sophisticated. I am leaning towards some type of tan (perhaps the color of the grout in the exposed brick?) or darker as I learned from the design shows I watch that there should be contrast. My leather furniture is brown with red tones in it which will remain in the living room. In addition, the office upstairs will need to be painted as well, and since it is viewable from downstairs, I was thinking a darker version of whatever is chosen for the great room area.
