So I painted my living room, dining room and kitchen Restoration Hardware Glacier Blue as I wanted to brighten and lighten the area. Our home does not get enough direct sunlight and I found Restoration Hardware Silver Sage to be too greeny for me. We are going to enhance the color of the walls by installing walnut or maple colored engineered hardwood floors and chocolate curtains to make it not look so baby boy room blue. The problem I have is that I have two hallways and an upper floor living room (that connect to these rooms that are painted Glacier blue) which I wish to paint another color but I am having a hard time on selecting one. What would you guys suggest? Thanks!

Default Color Ideas

I would sample SW Convivial Yellow or Behr's Bavarian Cream. These colors could tie in the walnut flooring, brown window treatments and blue walls.

Upload or email a photo to RoomVues.com RoomVues - Capture Your Color! and let them virtually paint your walls with these colors or any other colors to see how it looks.

Don't forget to post some photos of your finished job.

I would love a cream or gray/white with the blue. You might want to look at Behr China White. I like it in my house, but you'd need to see it with your blue.

My personal suggestion would have also been a gray, but you want to stay away from those with a greenish tint to them. I'd have to see the color, of course, but I would think you want a muted gray.

I'm not sure exactly what your blue looks like but we painted our living room and dining room behr's prelude & silent tide blue, we recently painted the the hallway (which you can see from these rooms) Natural Twine from Martha Stewart I love it! It's a taupe color.

I am going to get samples of all your suggestions. My blue doesn't have green undertones in it. Its very icy baby blue. I will let you know what I have selected!
