    hegetsme:  It depends on what you like and can live with. I could never live with orange walls. I would not find an orange room relaxing.

    I also like neutral walls so I can change the color scheme by just changing pillows, throws etc. With orange walls, you are pretty much committed to orange.

    The difference is this:

    Personally, I would paint it all. However, if you like the orange you should keep it. I tend to prefer softer or more neutral colors in “common” areas.

    Also, I’m so sorry you have to remove wallpaper. We had to remove tons of wallpaper in our new home and I wouldn’t wish that on my worst enemy. You have my sympathy.

    I would definitely paint it all – make the space yours, new and fresh! That said, orange is probably my least favourite colour, so I admit to being biased. 🙂

    hegetsme:  I think the difference in your room and the inspiration picture is the size.  The room in the picture seems to be a small sun room.  Your room appears to be a lot bigger.  That is a lot of Orange.  I think you will be happier in the long run painting it a color that is more neutral and at most leaving an accent wall in the living room.  Long term, I think you will be happier just doing all of the walls at once.  That Orange is going to be hard to paint over.

    hegetsme:  If you like the color in the dining room i would leave the bottom part the orangy color but I wouldnt pair it with grey- maybe more of a beigy-?

     I would paint over the orange room maybe with whatever neiutral color you choose in the dining room. I kind of like it in small amounts, it reminds me of fall! Very home-y and warm. Just my 2 cents.

    Def get rid of the wallpaper. I’ve removed it once..it sucks. If you have the $$ I would total pay a professional to do it. They will do it faster and much better!

    They make wallpaper primer that allows you to paint over wallpaper.  In case you can’t get the wallpaper off.  Just FYI.

    Definitely paint it all. I’m not a fan of orange though.
