I'm worried that pure white walls will clash with a darker ceiling, so I'm torn on what to do with them. One idea is to paint everything the same cream tone, to match the ceiling. Another idea would be to paint just the dark brown areas with a cream color (to match the ceiling), and leave the otherwise taupe walls, but I'm not sure that this will lighten the space enough. What do you all think? How can I lighten this space without clashing with the existing details?
