He previously painted the room blue and left the trim and fireplace white. He likes it as-is, but I feel like it's kind of off. Perhaps because the floors are a warm, reddish brown. I think the blue also makes the room feel quite dark. My husband has agreed to let me paint the color I think would be best, as long as it is not white or beige. I like a lot of brown and oranges, black furniture, and turquoise accents. But I don't really know where to start. My instincts are a light terra cotta color or to make an accent wall of the fireplace in a more turquoise-blue. Should the color mesh with the adjacent room (pale yellow/burgundy)? Should I paint the fireplace? Should I paint the trim? Help! Sent by Elle Editor: Leave your suggestions for Elle in the comments — thanks! • Got a question?
