Paint Colors

I need help!!!

I am building a new house and am picking out the paint (attached is the floor plan and my selections). I was able to choose 5 colors and have chosen the following for each of the rooms:

SW7104 Cotton White - All Trim & Closets

SW7640 Fawn Brindle - Foyer, Great Room, Upper Hall, Mud Room, & Master Bath

SW7032 Warm Stone - Dining/Morning Room, Kitchen, Study, Bedroom #3

SW7676 Paper Lantern - Powder Room, Bedroom #2, & Main Bath

SW6471 Hazel (Turquoise) - Master Bedroom, Laundry

I would love to hear peoples feedback on where they would put the colors. For instance - is fawn brindle to dark, too light, just right? Is Hazel too much, should I go with a more neutral tone? Should I paint the main areas on the 1st floor the same color? So many questions and my head is spinning. Choosing everything out prior to this was easy but i think the paint selection is going to be the demise of me...well either this or lighting which i have just started looking into!

I have been in search of a foyer light...were going to have a 2 story foyer...and I have no idea how big it should be or how low it should hang. I wish i had a designer to do all this.

You might want to ask the site admin to move your post to the Home Decorating forum. You'll get a much better response there.

The Paint forum is more about the technical aspects of painting.

Some of your undertones are clashing. the paper lantern color in particular looks off relative to the other colors you have chosen. Repost over in the home decorating forum and you'll get many responses.
