Good Questions: Painting in an Open Plan Space?

We heard from Eric and Carla over the holiday break. They wrote: We need help. We are NY transplants to the Pacific NW and bought a small 2 bedroom. The floor plan is very open with the living room and kitchen separated by a pony wall. We have the "pancake batter" colored walls and are looking to moderinize, warm it up, and make it as cheery as we can for all of the gray days....

With how open the rooms are; do we need to have the same colors in both rooms, and if not what could we do?

Please share your advice and ideas with Eric and Carla in the comments below....thanks!
