SW Acanthus and Persimmon

julieanna21December 16, 2010

Our house is built and I have the colors picked out, I'm just unsure which ones are going where. The main problem is that the kitchen is open to the living room. One kitchen wall extends into the lr so the color of that wall in both rooms has to be same. There is a jog in the wall on the other side of the kitchen/lr that allows me to do two different colors there. I think Acanthus would go beautifully with the kitchen cabinets and Verde Peacock counters, but I don't love having a green wall in the living room. The rest of the lr is Renwick Beige.

So that brings me to Persimmon. Still looks great with cabinets, I like it in the lr, just not sure if it will go with counters, or won't be "happy" enough?

I wish I could see what it would look like in my head first!

Then I have dark emperador marble going in master bath and thought Acanthus would go great in there, but it's so hard to know:) Anybody happen to have experience with these combos?
