Paint color help?

Posted by CKGM (My Page) on

I need to repaint the family room to match the rest of our first floor which is mostly BM Shaker Beige, one dark brown wall in the entrance living room, and bookcases on one wall of the family room that are dark maroon with bright white trim. Right now it is a yellowish beige and the house is looking WAY too beigeish. I do like darker colors but think we need to lighten up this room a bit. Off the family room, I just repainted our master in a very dark olive toned brown.
Any ideas that go with that color palette?

CKGM, what color is your furniture in the room? Are you looking for another neutral, or to introduce some color? Were it not for the maroon bookcases, there are many directions you could, slate blue, etc.

It is the maroon bookcases throwing it off- I like neutral colors but getting a bit overwhelmed with them. Our couches are a sand color as well:(
