Any ideas? I don't care if it is Ben Moore or Sherwin Williams.
I happen to be going through my fan deck of S.W paints and love the Whole Wheat color. I love their new colors.

We want to enclose our 2 story foyer to gain access to a 2 story living room that we want to make into another bedroom. In order to gain access we need to build a walkway over the foyer and the foyer would become a walk in closet for the room. The big paladium window would be in the walk in closet. We are having a hardtime picturing this and what it would look like. Any regrets, do you have pictures you could send to me? I have not had much luck in finding anything about this. My e-mail is [EMAIL="charrida@aol.com"]charrida@aol.com[/EMAIL] Thanks!

I posted our entryway about 9 months ago. We had the same dilemma with the 2-story foyer. We have lots of light and I wanted to bring the ceilings down a little. We went dark and bold with our color choices, as the foyer is open to the formal living/dining areas. Since the entryway is so open and airy, dark colors don't make it feel closed in at all. In fact, it makes the space look larger. We pulled the wall colors from furniture already in the space. Benjamin Moore Blair Gold and Wethersfield Moss.

We have Sherwin William's Whole Wheat in our family room and it isn't very dark. It is a warm neutral and we get tons of compliments on it! We have Believable Buff in our hallway, but I would prefer Whole Wheat...it ia just a tad darker...and warmer!
