help me pick paint colors, attic remodel photos

nbethNovember 20, 2010

We are remodeling our attic and it is time to paint. We will have a king bed between the two builtins - the fabric is what will cover the headboard. The curtain fabric is draped on the chest by the window. A couple of furniture pieces are a honey pine. We are redoing the floor as well - uncertain as to the color/stain we will use. The glass block window is in the back of the shower. To its left is a gable dormer and to the right is the hall with closets and vanity space.

Our bed cover is light blue and pillows are browns and greens.

Any help you give with paint choices is greatly appreciated.

You can't go wrong with a neutral about the color of light mushrooms. It doesn't read white or beige, but somewhere in between. When this color was first recommended to us, I thought the sample chip was *way* too dark, but it's not. It will go with your blues and complement your green and browns.

And...paint's cheap. If you hate it next month, change it.
