So I'm asking for your design help. I need a new color. Here is what we've got to work with:
(except now there's a rug there- a rug with red and the exact color of the wall in it)
White shutters, white trim, white doors, travertine floors)
Walnut cabinetry, granite with grey, black, and a taupe the same color as the wall- as you can tell, too much matchy-matchy beige!
The entire downstairs is the same color. I need something lighter. But all my furniture is either dark wood or black! So I'm hoping to lighten things up strictly with paint. Here are my ideas:
#1: Do what Dooce Does
I like the idea of a multi-purpose, lighter beige.

#2: Add Blue

Any other great ideas?
