Good Questions: Paint Color For This Space?

Good Questions: Paint Color For This Space?

Hi Apartment Therapy, I have a color and "room flow" dilemma — when I renovated my kitchen, a friend suggested high gloss red cabinets. I thought it sounded cool, and it turned out great. The living/dining area was painted a neutral beige, not taking the "flow" of the apartment into consideration. There is a pass-through window from LR/DR area to the kitchen. And the beige and high gloss red do not play well together. Since the kitchen works, and painting is much cheaper than getting new cabinets, the L/D area is getting a new coat. The question is, what color? Am open to anything, including dark colors, but some things to note about the space...

(Note: Include a pic of your problem and your question gets posted first. Email questions and pics with QUESTIONS in subject line to: newyork(at)apartmenttherapy(dot)com)

• the floor and most furniture in the L/D area are dark wood, stained walnut
• the space gets a TON of light throughout the day
• bedroom is green so would prefer something other than green

Thanks!
Jeff

Anyone with advice for Jeff?
