Q. Hi Jordan,
I’ve been following you for years and years, but this is the first urge I’ve had to actually ask for help!
My boyfriend and I are moving into a duplex in a month. The current paint colors make me physically ill, but I don’t know what colors to choose without making myself equally ill a month after re-painting it.
I’d like to have SOME color…Ugh, but what color?! And where?!
Thanks in advance!
A. What an AWESOME apartment – seriously, I love it!
I agree, though – those paint colors are a little loud…and you really don’t need them to be, since the room itself has such personality.
What I would do is choose a color that’s isn’t so distracting that it takes the focus away from that incredible ceiling. How about a super-pale lemon yellow on the walls, and then a slightly deeper shade on the curved wall? Alternatively, you could do a pale dove grey accented by charcoal on the curved wall, for something a little more stark and minimalistic (if that’s your vibe).
I’m actually repainting a room in our home-to-be a pale lemon shade; I’ll (hopefully) be posting pictures and links to the paint colors in just a couple of weeks!
