NY Good Questions: Living Room Paint Color?

Pin it button big

Hello AT,

I am not sure how this works, but I live in a rental in Brooklyn and would really appreciate your help in figuring out how to paint and redecorate our living room.

As you can see from the photos, it is a ghastly pea green as of now, with dark green curtains and carpet.

We are ripping up the carpet and sanding the wood floors, but are not sure how to paint the room...

(Note: Include a pic of your problem and your question gets posted first.)

I was thinking gray with an accent wall in turquoise to make it more tropical and funky.

Not sure which wall to paint, and I was even thinking of continuing the accent paint into the kitchen on the cabinets or something.

The room right next to the living room is our bedroom, which we just finished painting lavender. Let me know if you have any suggestions.

Thanks! Sarah
