First off I’d year down that wallpaper and those floral window treatments. What does your furniture look like? Our kitchen is currently a tan taupe color and I’m about to paint it a darker caramel.  We have darker hardwood though so you could go even darker on your walls if you wanted! I like chocolate, our living room is that color and the carpet is a similar light shade like your floors.

@inky_1:  Ok, that helps. I would go with olive tone in the dining room then.

I think a lovely gray would look wonderful on the walls. What style furniture are you planning on getting? More traditional? Modern? Country? That would help a lot.

It’s a beautiful space with all those great windows. Like others said remove the wall paper and floral valances off the windows. Change the paint colour and add some modern furniture you will have a totally different space

Keep the window bearing walls light in color= sand is perfect. 

The wall that all the light hits, and the doorways are located on, should be painted a rich accent color, if keeping with the greens, go with something a shade or two bolder/darker than the olive,  maybe a chocolate shade, a rich copper or a bold modern blue? The accent wall should absorb some if the light from the windows, and give you a color to play off of when it comes to linens and accents throughout the room. 

Without seeing your furniture I’m not sure which taste best fits you? 

 

ETA stainless steel appliances look so rich and elegant when paired with a truffle accent color wall in the kitchen.

What about gray? I was always a little fearful of color and mostly stuck with shades of cream/tan, but in my new house I wanted to push it a little bit and did grey in my living room. I am now IN LOVE with gray. 

I think a darker gray would contrast with your light floors very nicely.

Here are my light pale gray walls with the contrast of dark wood floors.

I would go with something darker on the walls to contrast with the floors.  Maybe a medium blue or green.  I would also get some area rugs in a style that you love and built the rooms around them.  How would you describe your style?
