More on the north facing LR
Thanks for all of your input on the north facing room! yes, I think a warm yellowish tone will be good! here is another dilemma that some of you probably have great advice for:
The North wall is a big bay window .. Good ... But no direct light.
The West wall includes a fabulous mantel, chair rail, tons of moulding andetailing. it is definitely a feature! But... Too detailed and it would be awfully busy if I highlighted with white trim. My architect wants me to paint the entire room one color (instead of the traditional wall versus trim) and just use a sheen to bring out the detailing. I like the idea, BUT
Since I am leaning towards yellow, I am afraid that the yellow will over power and be, well, TOO Yellow. it needs to be balanced by white, but will the white of the ceiling and kitchen cabinets (adjoining room ... 4 foot cased opening) be enough?
I would love to post a pic but I don't think my iPad will let me ...
