bridging the gap with paint
I need some paint color advice and you ladies rock in that area!
I am getting ready to do a makeover with new flooring and paint in our dining room, which most of the time serves as our home office but by putting our laptops, etc. away, can easily slip back into dining room mode when needed.
It is situated between two other rooms (living room and kitchen/family room) that can't be seen from each other with french doors between each transition on perpendicular walls.
I have gone with gray walls and silver metals in the family room/kitchen and with golden beige walls with brass and bronze accents in the living room. There are numerous strong black accents and furniture pieces in both rooms.
The dining room which lays between these two rooms currently has deep, dark wine colored walls. They were fine when we just used it as a dining room, but now that we are in there daily for office work, it's dark and oppressive and we want to lighten things up.
So, my question is this. What would a good wall color be that would coordinate well with both the gray and the golden beige in the two adjacent rooms? I definitely tend to gravitate towards neutrals. As a side note, there will be a lot of black in the dining room/office as well, in the form of large glass front hutch, mirrored and black table, and black leather parsons dining chairs.
Here is a pic of the living room where you can see a peek of the french doors that lead to the dining room on the right. I'll do a pic of kitchen/family room in replies:
