Please help me to decide the paint colours for our kitchen and living room!
Kitchen is going to be pale blue cabinet doors with oak coloured work tops and flooring. I was thinking white tiles and a slightly grey neutral like dulux white cotton. However, in the brochure, the picture for the kitchen we have ordered has a dark blue feature wall. We have an odd wall between the kitchen and dining areas which also has a narrow chimney that has been converted to a cupboard. Would it be too extreme to paint this a dark blue?
There's a similar issue with the living room. I was thinking of going for jasmine or orchid white but think it might be a bit boring so was thinking of painting the chimney breast (black wood burner and hearth, no surround atm) a dark red. We have off- white sofas, dark wood furniture and a dark beige carpet.
Is this kind of feature wall really old fashioned? We've lived in rented boring- magnolia houses for so long that I'd quite like some colour now we've got our own place! But the colours I like seem too much for a whole room.
All red might be cosy especially if you have light accessories
Feature stuff needs to be a feature by definition. If you paint sth random a strong colour that draws attention, it might not look very good.
