what color to paint dining room and Kitchen

I am remodeling my kitchen and plan to take the wallpaper down and use paint. My foyer, which is adjoining my dining room and kitchen is painted a ocher color (I don't know the exact color). I would like to have the rooms flow but I just don't know what color to paint the kitchen and dining room. The dinning room has very little light and currently has white and gold wallpaper. my kitchen has a northern exposure and has big windows so it has a lot of light.
I want my dining room to feel warm and inviting but not dark and my kitchen is bright and overlooks our pasture.


Thank you for your question. I would be happy to suggest paint colors that would complement your foyer, and available light. Because the rooms flow together, I like the look of using two colors that are similar, but one is a lighter shade. The lighter shade would most likely work in the dining room, but you could experiment with that when sampling. Best to use a sample board so you can move colors from room to room..

Without seeing the foyer color, I can suggest a few warm color combinations for you to sample.

Thank you,
