    @Leonard2B:  I actually don’t like any of them. They make the room look smaller.

    @Leonard2B:  I LOVE these colors!  I’m choosing a similar wall color to either Tony Taupe or Sands of Time (they look very close to me) for my palette.  Gorgeous! 

    I voted for Sands of Time because my hardwoods are going to be dark like the picture, and I’m going with eggshell trim.  🙂

    @Leonard2B:  There’s nothing wrong with the taupe color scheme but maybe just go with a lighter shade.

    The right color will depend a lot on the lighting in your particular space and the fixed elements that are already there. I would go buy sample cans of all of the colors you are considering, get some poster board, and make big color swatches for yourself. Then hold the swatches next to your counters, backsplash, cabintes, flooring, and furniture pieces. Which color looks best with ALL of those fixed elements? That is your color. Don’t forget to also consider your trim color and ceiling color as well.
