the front and side walls of my living room I have Sherwin Williams' "Wool Skein", on the large back living room wall I have Sherwin Williams' "Barcelona Beige," and I want to transition the hall into "Contented". I wanted to carry Barcelona Beige down the back living room wall to the corner of the hall, and use Contented on the opposite hallway wall. I don't know how to paint the arch — specifically underneath the arch to tie into the other color:


I think the easiest answer is to use Barcelona Beige under the arch and on both sides of the hall until I hit the door, and then change to Contented at a natural change in the wall. My wish is to be able to use Contented all the way down the left hall wall, and I'm looking for any ideas or creative solutions to somehow tie the colors together. Thanks for any ideas!

Here are the paint colors.
