I purchased floors called Black forest oak, they are being installed all over my home, I have chosen three colors: All Benjamin Moore Stone Hearth 984 (Greige), Mt. Rainier Gray 2129-60 (Blue Gray) and Deep Caviar 2130-20 (its like a charcol with hues of purple, brown, black) my question is how can I incorporate all three of these colors in my living room and hallway? ive attached the colors and a photo of my living room and hallway PLEASE help! I have neutral furniture and the decor I can do accordingly the hard part is just picking walls and assigning color I was thinking of doing a striped accent wall with all three colors? but which wall should I do!!! All advice welcome! sorry about the mess I'm litterally remodeling NOW!
Looks like good space and sounds like a fun idea, SSB! Love the texture/grain of your floor. Assuming you lean contemporary given the high contrast. True?
Can you post add'l photos, say all 4 walls of the room? (Could be just me but it's tough to get a feel for the entire room from the hallway + 1 open wall.) A quick, uploaded sketch indicating your proposed furniture placement, windows/doors, focal walls/TV placement and fireplace or other focal points would also be helpful. Have a feeling you'll receive many responses, if you add more info.
WRT the hallway, what's your color plan for the remainder of the home? Do you plan to use 1 of the colors (the greige?) for all of the hallways? Or white hallways? Color scheme for the remaining rooms, in general?
Have you considered color-blocking? Could be fun -
Only JMHO. Good luck with your project!This message has been edited. Last edited by: AguaBella,
Definitely agree. Always easier to start with fabrics, paper or another inspiration piece pulling all 3 colors together and then simply match the paint to it. Otherwise, you may spend numerous hours attempting the reverse.
Did you already commit to these specific paint shades, SSB? Can't tell exactly what's on the wall in your photo and had the impression you'd committed.This message has been edited. Last edited by: AguaBella,
I have 100 percent committed to the stone hearth 984 the other two colors I'm not that committed my walls are currently a gray color and green hate them they came out too dark I want something neutral so I can play with colors they accessories pillows curtains etc. I'm attaching a photo with a striped wall that I love my goal is to pull off a striped wall effortlessly. But how do I choose which wall to put it on? I know I don't want the stripe all the way around the room, perhaps the wall that my sectional will be up against? (The longest wall u see in the photo) or across the room from the sofa it be something the eye catches when u sit?
Everyone gets their inspiration from some place different. As a design professional with over 25 years experience I have never picked a wallcolor until after my fabric, rug and wallpaper choices have been settled on. Having a paint store "tweak" a color to get it right is possible,certainly easier and cheaper than custom colored carpet or custom wallcovering.
You should do what makes you happy, but you certainly made your job a lot more difficult by picking paint color first.

Thank you I have already chosen my furniture rugs accessories etc and the colors chosen coordinate with everything I just wanted advice on how to include the striped wall that's it (which wall to put it on so it doesn't look tacky that's all) my furniture just isn't in my living room bc of renovation going on the colors were chosen after the fact not before
My answer would be to simply use the striped wall on the wall you choose as your focal point wall. The room in the picture shows a very attractive set-up and I think yours will turn out the same. Have fun with it.
