Accent wall color?

Jenn CassieNovember 6, 2012

Hello all,

We recently painted our living room/dining room (open floor plan) BM Revere Pewter and we love it. Then we painted the wall where our white fireplace is Ralph Lauren Mombasa Mist and I am just not loving it. It looks so cool and dark and steel-like, and I was looking for something that's still in the grey family but warmer and cozier. The wall also has a white-trimmed built-in bookcase. Now I'm looking for a new color. Thoughts? Thinking about BM Raccoon Hollow...has anyone used that color? Also thinking I could go in a totally different direction and do a color like Wythe Blue. Anyone have any thoughts? We're in Western Washington, so we don't get a ton of sunlight...just something to keep in mind!
