Hey nesting bees! We are finally starting our interior painting projects… My issue is not knowing what color to paint a specific wall which runs between the kitchen and the LR.
I’m not sure if it matters, but the wall is probably 2/3 of the LR and 1/3 of the kitchen.
The kitchen will be ‘sassy green’ http://www.myperfectcolor.com/PhotoDetails.asp?ShowDESC=N&ProductCode=MPC0071552
LR will be ‘basket beige’ http://www.myperfectcolor.com/PhotoDetails.asp?ShowDESC=N&ProductCode=MPC0071479
My only worry is that if I paint the whole wall the green, it will be too much, and the beige will be too boring… Any thoughts??

Do you have pictures of the area? It’s always better to see it to help make a decision than to guess.

what do you mean by wall between walls? I’m having trouble picturing that.
The “sassy green’ color you linked isn’t green…it’s brown. did you link the wrong one ?
i have a very light beige and green room (called Olive White I think) in my house and I really like the color. The chair molding is a shade of light almond/almost white. The colors go together nicely in my opinion.

The ‘green’ color doesn’t really show up true to color online. I had to change my color settings for it to be more true to color. It is like a sage/avocado green. It reminds me of the ‘submit’ button color as I am posting this.
I am attaching two photos… The first one is the wall in questions, the second one– the wall in question is behind me, so you can get a feel for how the wall runs between 2 rooms. (please excuse the hand-me-down furniture; that is the next project to tackle)

paint it green as your accent wall and then leave everything else beige

Well, I want the kitchen to be green too (although there isnt’ a ton of wall space in the kitchen). I’m wondering if it will be too much if I paint the large wall green or too boring if I paint it beige…

I think you should paint both areas the same color, since they run in to each other and there’s no natural break. OR, paint both rooms a variation of the same shade. Pick your favorite color and go one or two shades higher/lighter on the color chart for the adjoining area.

I think the green would work fine. Or you could do a golden yellow sort of color (something like this or this). I know several people that used similar colors for a bedroom and it looked gorgeous — not too bright either. You could also do a warm cream sort of color. Don’t feel confined to one color for the space, though. We have friends that used three different colors in their living room/dining room and it looked great.
