@AmeBee:  Benjain Moore- Beacon Hill damask HC-2 OR Dill pickle 2147-40 for a green and Wedgewood gray HC-146 for a blue(my pick). Congrats!

Is that the only spot that the wall is red?  If so, I would suggest a bolder color and use your blue/grey idea where its yellow.  I say that only becuase it looks like a bigger space.  If I have it backwards then I would put the bold color where its yellow and your blueish grey over the red.

I think blue would look nice. What color is the floor (is that red/grey rug part permanent or is that gone)?

I think going with a rich color for the living room, and leaving the pastels in the eating area makes sense.  Bluish gray would probably be nice for the living rooms, but I wouldn’t do light green, unless it’s a pretty rich hue.

We moved into our house which is painted all these intense colors, but we sort of love it.  Mustard for the living room, terra cotta for the dining room, one bathroom is blue and the other is grayish-purple…keeps things interesting.

@AmeBee:  Our living room is Benjamin Moore pewter. Its a lovely grey, it would look awesome in that space. Personally, I don’t like walls that aren’t white or a lighter shade of grey. I love the clean, modern look they give the room.

Congrats on your new home! I think a muted grey would be perfect with the yellow in the background. 

@KC-2722:  I’m the same way. Grey and white walls are perfection in my book 🙂

I think the blue grey would be awesome. Benjamin Moore “tranquility” would be perfect and they have it paired with a lemon sorbet it’s lovely. but I also agrees that a plain grey would be great too

Check out Ben Moore Coventry Gray.  It is definitely gray but with blue undertones.  I have it in in a bedroom and bathroom paired with chartreuse…it looks great with yellow and is such a soothing color.
