Help! Need opinions on arch color

Posted by taracol (My Page) on

HI- Reposting....Need help. Need to decide by 4pm today- buying the paint today!
I would like an opinion on which to do. I am painting my dining room Benjamin Moore's Interlude color (like a brownish neutral). We have small entryway into the dining room (which is where our front door is) and it has an arch. My question is should I paint the whole entryway including the arch the accent color Frappe or just the actual arch? Which would look better? My husband and I have a difference of opinion. Thanks!

The Frappe appears to have some yellow/green in it, and on my monitor, is a much cooler color than Interlude. Have you considered Truffle for the entry or having BM cut Interlude and use a lighter shade of it? Personally, I'd paint the inside edge of the arch the color of the entry.
