Making a bold statement is so hard sometimes. I'm tired of the boring "builder white" in my house. We have this "tower" in the front entry that I've been wanting to make a splash with. After 2 1/2 years, we finally got some paint samples and slapped them up on the wall.
After all this time of looking at colors on swatches, I've got to admit that I'm a little disappointed as to the colors on the wall. Here's the "tower" and then a closer up look at the four selections we thought we narrowed it down to...
I'm leaning towards the dark Firebrick red in the lower right corner. The yellow was supposed to be gold. The coral was supposed to be a softer Firebrick. The beige color is a surprise contender... this color is actually the color that was on every single wall in our Dallas house that we absolutely hated with a deep passion because the entire house looked yellow... perception is completely different when it's not the entire house... I wonder how the paint moved to Austin and why it doesn't look yellow... it was sneaky.
Any opinions? No burnt orange colors, and we have chosen a green/olive for the kitchen to compliment the cherry cabinets.
