      My hub and I are working on our sun room/family room right now and my dilemma is coordinating the colors which will enhance a room like that without being too stark..there is morning sun coming through a picture window..the colors I would like to work with are chocolate brown, medium blues, creamy beige and orange (for accent)..the flooring will be a medium to dark walnut..should I go lighter on wall or darker on wall?....will post some pics asap...any suggestions?...btw..frame around picture window is wood and hub will stain it darker to match floor. happy

        • Definately a lighter wall... a mid-tone beige... will enhance the warmth of the woods and the natural light. Accent possibly on the ceiling - not a white - will add to the warmth. always accent with one shade lighter than the paint chip - for an easy way to see what it will look like on the wall, put clear nailpolish on the chip,that will bring out the color on the swatch and show just how dark/light the chip will look. If you choose to accent the ceiling with a color, go one shade lighter, colors on the ceiling will slightly darken on the horizontal less lighted surface.
          Always have most of your accents come from accessories, area rugs etc. as they can easily be changed.
          one good hint for color is to start with an insprirational piece such as a vase, painting or patterned area rug.
          Have fun!
