My front foyer is Dorset Gold and the rest of the front hall is Shelburne buff. It is open to the upper hall and loft. The upper loft is Philadelphia cream and the dining room is Monroe bisque. The kitchen is Georgian green. The hardwood is honey oak and so are the railings and spindles. I want a light colour that will compliment the other colours. It is also a south facing space.
Hello. Not only would I have to look up every color you've mentioned, but visualize it in your space w/o knowledge of how lighting (natural and artifical) impact them. Carry your paint chips from these spaces w/ you to your favorite paint store. Taping them to a story board is even better. Then, browse chips that compliment the colors especially those in close proximety to the foyer (ie. Shelburne buff). Factor in flooring, furnishings, room size, trim and LIGHTING. Narrow down your search to a few and then view them in your foyer to see how lighting impacts them (day, night, cloudy days, etc.). Keep in mind that the foyer sets the tone for your entire home as it's the first thing guests view upon entering.
TIPS: Generally paint stores will offer for the taking booklets that suggest color teaming. Do note that other values on the same paint chip that's been used already in one space, might be a perfect candidate for your foyer.
