What Color to Paint My Basement Apartment?

Good Questions

Pin it button big

Q: I need help with my basement apt. It's half aw-shucks diner and half pretty princess pony castle. The diner kitchen and Berber carpet are low quality and will be eventually replaced ( I bought), but I'm looking for a more affordable fix for now....

As in paint.The adjacent bedroom is milk chocolate in color and the small storage room is deep red. I was thinking a deep peacock color, but am worried it will make the stark kitchen even brighter. I would love Apartment Therapy's feedback on this space.

Editor: We like the idea of picking up on the grey color from the tiles in the kitchen area for the walls - we've seen lots of lovely examples of grey walls recently ranging from very pale right on up to charcoal. What color would you suggest to Candice for this space? Please let her know in the comments below...thanks!
