Q: My partner and I rent a fantastic victorian-style apartment which we love - the only problem is that it was remodeled in the 80's and each room is painted a different (occasionally clashing!) pastel. The biggest eyesore being the entryway/long hallway which is TWO horrible shades of pink.

We are tired of living in a bottle of pepto-bismol, but are having issues deciding on what colors to go with. Ideally I would like to keep the theme of a lighter wall and darker trim, but don't want to go too dark as the hallway is quite long.

Choosing the perfect colors is essential, this is going to be a ginormous job to paint so much wallspace.

Thank you in advance for any suggestions you can offer!
