Should I take the plunge on painting a dark color or no?
Currently our walls a yellowish/tan I guess you can call it. I recently painted our nursery a medium tan. I also took that medium tan and put it in our Foyer and did some faux painting on it. Everything turned out great, but the yellowish tan looks like it doesn't belong. I'm not sure if it would make the house to dark or not to paint it a darker color.
Here is a pic of the before. The wall on the right (behind the foyer table) and the closet on the left all around, was faux painted. I really like the warmth it puts off. Now we are thinking of changing our entire base color downstairs and up (2500 SQFT) to a darker tan. About half as dark as the faux base coat.
After I painted the faux in the foyer:
I bought some sample paint, but just still unsure of how dark it will make the house. If anyone else has pics of what they have done please do feel free to post =)
