Please keep in mind - nothing in the living room is staying, the furniture and painting wont be there so disregard that.

I was thinking a shade of medium to light green. My girlfriend was thinking about a shade of blue.

This is an open concept livingroom/kitchen - we like contemporary design.

Your thoughts on wall colors please with accents ect...

Personally, since you have the large, open plan, I'd go with as neutral a color as possible. I would think maybe a darker taupe, grey, or a sage green. I don't think a light blue would go well with your kitchen. If you want more color than that, I'd paint just one wall a different color as an accent - such as the wall that the fireplace is on. Leave the rest very neutral.

We have the open floor plan as well, and the color we chose is Nomadic Desert, which may be just slightly darker than yours. We have plenty of color in the room from the furniture (red), area rugs, and wall decorations.

Again, that's just my taste. YMMV.

A sage green would look so much better with your wood floors and trim. Blue doesn't have any business being in those rooms.

Considering your beautiful foliage outside and the great views bringing that in with more green would be great.

It's a lot easier to match paint to furniture then it is to match furniture to paint. Pick out your furniture first, then figure out what paint you want to use.

I would do a warm light taupe/brown. I think the other colors would feel too cool.

I'm partial to green. I like it assuming it looks as good in person as it does on my monitor.

Personally, I'm more partial to this color green - it's closer to a sage green. I tend to favor lighter wall colors, as they keep the rooms looking brighter and bigger. I always think dark colors make a room look smaller and darker.

I think I might prefer a slightly lighter green as well. But someone told me with the brown trim, be careful going to light. Any truth to that.
