Cast your vote – I need help!
Today’s post is a cry for help! Since it’s been over three months that we’ve called our current house our home, I have pieced together a general idea of what every room will eventually look like after I get the time and money to paint, buy accessories and furniture for them. Every room except for one.
Here’s a close up of the tile that’s become a thorn in my side:
Now I did take a color composition class in college, and I understand that blue is orange’s compliment, and if you add black to one color you add white to the other – so technically the light blue goes well with the reddish-orange. I’m also a huge fan of blue as you must know by now, but for whatever reason, the color combination in this room just isn’t doing it for me. I keep imagining the perfect cream color in here that may have a hint of grey but I just can’t decide on that color. Here are some colors I’ve tried so far:
From left to right: Benjamin Moore’s Manchester Tan, Laura Ashley Gold #3 (it matched some fabric I considered making drapes out of but that got scratched when I couldn’t complete the drapes for the living room) Lowe’s Eddie Bauer Barley, and Lowe’s Eddie Bauer Wicker (same color as our living room).
I began priming the trim last night and it will all get a nice fresh coat of white paint. So here’s my desperate plea: please help me pick a color! If you have a great cream color (or a different suggestion, it doesn’t have to be cream/beige/brown or tan) that you think would work – please send me the name! I’ll be sure to give you credit when I post our den’s makeover!
