HELP! Need paint color to coordinate with brick fireplace
I am so glad to have found this forum. I am in a pickle. I have to decide on a paint color for my kitchen, livingroom and long hallway. The rooms all flow together. I have good lighting in my kitchen, not so great lighting in my livingroom and even less lighting in my long hallway. The biggest problem is that I have an old Chicago fireplace in the livingroom that looks taupe from a distance but in the livingroom it looks kind of orangish-gold, gray, brown, maroon and black. There are lots of colors in the bricks. Anyway, I need a wall and trim color to coordinate with the Old Chicago bricks. The painters are due to start this week! I had looked at Fairway Oaks but it might be too dark? Tooooo brown? I don't know if a light and airy look will work with this rich earthy fireplace either. Everything looks either too light or too dark. Help! Thanks to all in advance!
