Brie sent in a good question: Hello AT Chicago! Can you help me? We recently ordered new furniture and with the addition of these pieces, I'm wondering if I should consider a paint color change. The walls in my living room/dining room are green (shown below the jump) -two different shades. I'm not exactly loving the green in the dining room but there's no way to avoid it because the long wall from the LR flows in to the DR.

I'm particularly drawn to what I consider a very sophisticated and modern neutral palette found in this house tour: Karla's Asian Transitional Home. Does the AT community have any ideas for how to tone down all the green without eliminating the green paint all together? ....

Should I paint the long wall a different accent color? Or should I get rid of all the green walls and only have one as an accent? The long wall is seen in the photo with the picture collage. I've also included the existing color palette. The look I want to achieve is clean, warm and modern but still organic. Thanks for your help!
