Good Questions: What Color for Our Entryway?

Pin it button big

Hello AT,

We need help picking a paint color for our small entryway. As you can see, the music room/office (where we keep the piano/drums and a desk since we are both part-time musicians) is painted a dark green (Benjamin Moore's Webster Green to be specific) which we love, but we are at a loss as to what color will lead well into it, since you can see the music room when you walk into the door.

Also, we are in a rental, so unfortunately the black and white floor tile is not changeable.

Any suggestions? Thanks! Erica

Dear Erica,

You've got a cool green in the music room/office, so we would contrast that with a warm color in your entryway. The black and white tile may not matter too much, but we would cover it with a rug or runner just to take the edge off.

Since you like the Historical Colors (Webster Green is one), why don't you take a look at

Hawthorne Yellow HC-4
Ansonia Peach HC-52
Lancaster Whitewash HC-174

Anyone else??
