    I’m not a big beige fan, but that second colour is def a winner.

    I think it needs to be warmer… And more inviting. The green is too cool and not inviting lol.

    but that’s all I got.

    I like the pale grey too. It’s a little cold but you can warm it up with furniture and accesories.

    TheGridMonster:  agree with a light grey. Even grey tan or stormy grey.

    I would also go with a light gray. There is  too much going on right now and I especially dislike the contrast between the green and the orange tone of the oak trim and cabinets.  Personally, I’d paint the cabinets and pull out the backsplash at some point, but you don’t have to do everything now.

    I lime the color of paint by itself, but not with the kitchen cabinet/ floor colors. I dont think they match. I would probably go with a light grey?

    ExpectingBee:  I like the color in the living room and not on the other rooms. I agree try a warmer color.

    I think the second color would look great as well! I also think that part of what looks “weird” is that bulkhead/beam on the ceiling between the kitchen and the eating area is painted that dark color. I would paint that white to match the ceiling and the second color that you chose on the walls.

    I think it’s making your decor look dated and dowdy–it’s kind of a 90s color. 

    Your furnishings are basically neutral, so you could go in a lot of directions, it just depends on your personality and what you like. I could see a burnt orange working for some people, but not others, for example. My one bit of wisdom is spend the time and money choosing one you really genuinely love. It’s not worth it to live with a paint color that’s not quite right.

    It wouldn’t be my first choice. It would depend on my furniture whether I took the time and effort to redo it though!

    I would paint it a light gray, but with the color of the kitchen cabinets and the shades of the floor, backsplash and fireplace, I would also re-finish the kitchen cabinets. The light wood doesn’t really “fit” with the colour scheme 🙁

    • Wedding: A very pretty church.

    ExpectingBee:  The original colour is too dark/green/grey. A lot of things could improve it, but I think changing any of those factors would probably help. Preferring cool or warm is very personal but I think the original colour just feels heavy, without bringing interest. My bedroom growing up was a strong iris blue, so I have nothing against dark, but this…adds nothing and detracts in otherways. However you want to change it I wish you luck.
