Entry Way/Foyer Paint Color--Help!!!!! Pics please!

erikamcOctober 29, 2010

Hello, I am picking paint colors for a new house and need help to pick the entry way/foyer color. The foyer is two story and will be well lit. We are using Benjamin Moore paint and are considering Smokey Taupe and Manchester Tan but are open to ideas. Please post pictures of your foyers!!! Thank you!

Here is an image in a foyer. I know Manchester Tan is a appears light. BM recommends it if you want your space to look big. Ethan Allen has it on many display walls in their store. Guess it depends if you are going for light and airy or warm and cozy.

Here are photos of our Entry and if you check the link from "My Page" you can see adjacent room photos where the colors continue.

Our colors are SW rather than BM. Not personally familiar with the colors you mention but ours are: Accent in Foyer continuing into LR - Latte; LR/DR and first flight of the stairs is Kilim Beige; then in the corner changes to Divine White. We also have good light on the 1st floor but used the Divine White through the interior hallway upstairs.

Our most difficult decisions were where to break the colors.

Hope this helps. Good luck in your new home.
