Color suggestions


I'd love your color recommendations for my living and dining room. Getting tired of the earth tones and considering Palladian Blue HC-144 with a slightly darker accent wall in each room...but not sure which wall. I think blueish colors would go well with the wood floors and dark furniture.

For the exterior, I live in a warm climate (Southern California), so want a light color that reflects light and heat. But I do want trim colors that pop. Something like a light green for the exterior, brown and yellow trim.

Anyway, pics are attached for your consideration.


Thanks so much for your questions, and the photos. I love your house -- it's very Southern California! The wall color you have now looks great, but I understand wanting a change. A subtle blue would look great with the wood flooring and nice white trim. It's possible that you could leave one of your walls as painted in the rich brown, for your accent wall, or choose another deep brown. Be sure to sample the colors as lighting and flooring can affect how a color appears once it's in the space, as well as differences between computer monitor color rendering.

Here are a few similar blues to consider:

Benjamin Moore Seacliff Heights

Benjamin Moore Heavenly Blue

Benjamin Moore Bali

For your exterior, here are suggestions to sample in light green. Once you choose your exterior color, you can sample trim and accent colors. It's also important to sample exterior paint, as it can appear brighter on large surfaces.

Benjamin Moore Chameleon

Benjamin Moore Country Green

Benjamin Moore Soothing Green

Benjamin Moore Warren Acres

I hope these ideas are helpful,

Thanks Diana, these were very helpful!
