Good Questions: Hall Color Help, Please?

Above Narrow Entrance

Hello AT,

I moved into my house almost a year ago and I have been slowly painting and filling up the space. However, I'm having problems with selecting a paint color for my narrow entrance way and what to add in that space if any.

In addition, I'm having problems in choosing a color to put in the hallway between the dining room and living room. I've also have been told that my living room looks stark so if anyone has suggestions of what to change or add I would definitely appreciate it.

Thanks, Rich

Dear Rich,

These are big questions, and we hope that the crowd will have some good answers for you. We'll start off by saying that your living room is drab because you don't have any good "top-note" colors. You have no bling. You have no accent colors. You need some good table and floor lamps to give you good lighting as well. The lamps and shades would be a good place to insert color.

More strong color needed to punctuate the space.

As for the hallway, we would solve the problem by taking a nice deep orange and painting only one side of the halslway - leaving the rest as is. Here's a color suggestion that will fit in with your palette:

Calypso Orange 2015-30

Anyone else???
