Texas Leather for a Family Room
Wondering what anyone thinks of painting a family room in a dark color? Every time I show people the color I want, they comment that it is VERY dark.
I don't know how to upload a sample from the BM site, but I think it is such a warm and inviting color.
We are building a new house with a large family room. The room is 24x18 1/2 and will have a coffered ceiling (15 feet).
The back wall of the room is essentially all windows with a window seat below.
The front wall will have a fireplace and built in book shelves with windows above.
One side of the room will have a 6 foot french pocket door opening to the kitchen and the other side will have a doorway to the mud room.
All of the trim will be white. I am hoping that the abundance of natural light as well as the white trim will make the room bright enough yet still cozy despite the dark color.
What do you all think? I thought I was confident in this decision but the reactions of others is making me question myself?!
Any and all opinions are appreciated. Thanks so much.
