Help choosing paint colors to achieve a more modern look
I'm out searching for paint ideas for the first floor of our smallish town home. We are updating the kitchen and would like to repaint the living room as well. I'm attaching our floor plan. Overall we are trying to modernize the space from the previous owner. We are keeping the off white cabinetry, installing a light gray floor tile, gray quartz counter top, white subway tile for backslash. In the dining and living area we are laying a walnut hardwood flooring, and installing tall simple baseboards. Overall we are trying to achieve a clean modern look, without taking away a homey aspect of the place. Overall i'm a sucker for gray color, and feel that we can buy furniture to brighten things up a bit, but i also don't want the place to appear dark with minimum natural light we receive.
My original idea is to paint the longest wall "wall A" a dark gray color, and the kitchen a light graige. I'm not sure what to do with the rest of the living room... Our staircase and upstairs corridor is already painted an off white color.
any advise would be greatly appreciated!
