need help on a 2 story house!!??

Hi Diana, this is the picture of my 1st floor and my hallway. They both are just plain white paint for now. I was very interested in "Shaker Beige" by benjamin moore but I recently stop by Home Depot and found a new kind of brown it called "Harvest Brown" by Behr. I totally in love with both of them. What is your suggestion? Do you have any color suggestion that coordinate with those brown for my kitchen? I will sent you my family room on the other comment. Dont think the website allow more than three pictures per Comments. Once again thank you for your help Diana.
Thank You,

Hi, thanks for sharing the photos! I'll do my best to help you sort the colors out. You liked these colors: Benjamin Moore Shaker Beige HC-45

MyPerfectColor Match of Behr Harvest Brown 710D-4

They're both gorgeous neutrals that would flow easily into the rooms and halls in your home, especially with the arches and other architectural details. Harvest Brown looks a a bit darker than Shaker Beige -- definitely more of a brown than beige. You can order samples of each one, to test in your home, as colors can be darker or lighter depending on the lighting. I would also consider using the neutral color in your kitchen, as it looks as if you like to use accent colors in there. The key is choosing a color for the walls that works with your cabinets, so you can test both of those colors near the cabinets to get an idea of how it would look. I'm a huge fan of using painted sample boards to test color, especially if you're trying it out in different rooms. You can order those on the MyPerfectColor site, as well.

For your family room, you could definitely go with a blue wall color similar to Benjamin Moore Wythe Blue, as you mentioned in your earlier question. Here is a similar but slightly lighter color that you may want to sample, as well:

Benjamin Moore Sylvan Mist CSP-740

You could also use the blue that you chose as an accent wall in other rooms of the house, even test the blues in the kitchen to see if that works. Looking at the layout of your home, and the architecture, I would limit the wall colors to two or three, and use accent walls and accessories to tie everything together. It would creating a color palette for your home, using a neutral like Shaker Beige, Wythe Blue, and perhaps an off white or darker brown, then using those colors around the housse in rooms, hall, accent walls, backsplash, etc. It would really tie everything in.

Hope this is helpful, feel free to ask follow up questions or provide clarification.
