We have an open concept home also and so we have coordinated the same colours throughout the entire downstairs!

Our colours are taupe (walls), tan (couch and floors), black and red accents!

My goodness1  My place is brown and green.  I originally wanted a red kitchen and had the same concerns as you.  I recently did a blog post and included pics so feel free to check it out.  http://frontpagechatter.blogspot.com/2009/11/its-our-anniversary.html.  Since it’d open I think the need to coordinate somewhat…you can do brown as your main color then do green in the living room for accent if you want and red in the kitchen as an accent…like pops of color against the brown.

I’m green and brown and white. Mostly green and white, but my sofa is brown leather (and I’m totally in love with it). I’ve been thinking about changing it recently cause I’m kinda tired of it.

Gah, purple (we’re phasing it out), white (so much of it) and periwinkle and other nasty shades like matte sage green (it shows scratches and was poorly done in excess). We did a light eggshell in the front entryway and hallways, the front room is taupe and cranberry, the living room has wallpaper (neutral, but still…we’ll probalby go with a warm taupe/brown), the kitchen is an ugly sage green, but has a tuscan wall accent and we’re painting over the green to make it “butter” yellow, the master bathroom is a wintergreen color, (a blue-green, bright color) and the guest bath is a spa like violet-gray/blue, and the bedroom is being painted with a yellowy-green accent wall (called Chilled Lemonade) and dove gray. The 3 guest bedrooms are TBD (one i’m toying with gray and peacock blue to match the accents in there) and the downstairs is white. DH wants to pain his office downstairs a hunter green.

The colors in our house were SOOOOO ugly and poorly done when we bought it. We hated it. I mean, who paints a HUGE room bright periwinkle?! Oh gosh. But it takes time to paint a whole house by yourselves! So all we have left is master bedroom, guest bedrooms, downstairs (which is a disaster still), hallway, and stripping wallpaper off the living room/repainting that

love the idea of the lime-er more crisp green with brown and white…think that makes it easier to add your pops of red and orange…

our living room walls are green, we have brown carpet. We are painting the kitchen a deep red…I plan to just use red to accent in the living room. Might even hang some red curtains, but I haven’t totally decided on that yet because the living room/dining room is a single space. Maybe we will do some deep brown curtains…we are very outdoorsy people so I think it will work well for us. Our furniture (when we get it) will be rustic pine so, it will all tie in. I think brown and green look good with deep reds. 🙂

The previous owner was a 60+ year old woman, who lived all by herself. I know it wasn’t professionally done b/c they didn’t move the appliances to paint (when we bought new appliances, there were huge gaps of paint missing). But man this periwinkle was just awful

our house is brown and green. We have a beautiful green kitchen. They say if you paint your room a color that looks out into a beautiful outdoor scenery it extends the feel of how big the room is in your house.

We chose a light brown accent wall in our family room with white walls. our Bedroom is light tan and our master bath is WAY different from the rest of our house. It’s a pale daffodil with black accents.

To be honest I think the green and brown makea home very inviting they are warm and contemporary.

Our living room is a bluish teal on three walls and the wall where the fireplace is a shade darker.  Our curtains have burnt orange and brown in them.  Our furniture is a creme color with orange pillows.

The kitchen which is right off the living room has the color called peanut butter on three walls and the smallest wall (has the least amt of wall space) is painted tiger orange.  We are getting new counter tops so I might change out the orange.
