Good Questions: Wall Color for Patchwork Painted Floor?

Good Questions: Wall Color for Patchwork Painted Floor?

I am about to move into a new apartment in the North End of Boston and I get to paint the apartment however I wish. As you can see, the previous tenants really exercised their creativity! The hard wood floorboards in the living room have been individually painted alternating shades of green. I like the funky look of the floor, but I don't know what color to paint the walls. Any suggestions? I should also mention that the room gets lots of natural light, so I don't want a color that will look too washed out. Thanks, Alaina

Whoa! That's quite a floor. We'd recommend a white that's soft and neutral. It looks like you've got nice white trim to work with so definitely keep it simple and let that floor be the focus. Check out this post on the best whites. Anyone else?
