Ask Casa: I Need a Paint Color


Hi Casa,

I would love to pick your brain for a quick second. I'm moving into a new apartment and my new room is currently light chocolate brown. My furniture is all dark wood, and most of my other accessories are in the blue/green family. I'm thinking that I'd like to repaint the room (maybe a light shade of green?) but was wondering if you had any advice. Have you seen any amazing lighter colors recently that might work?

Thanks!
Ramya

Hi Ramya,

Without knowing the exact shades of your green and blue accessories, it's hard for me to say exactly what shade of wall color would be best. I can tell you that using a semi-gloss paint will help to visually expand a room, while an eggshell or satin finish will add a more subtle sheen.

Your chocolate brown furniture will add coziness and comfort to any room, while the blue and green accents contribute serenity, calm, and a healing energy to the space. This is a great foundation already!

I agree that changing the light chocolate brown shade on the walls is for the best. I would lean towards a blue-toned neutral. You could go for a crisp white that has a blue-tone base, or go a little more dramatic with a grayer shade, which is very trendy right now. Try Benjamin Moore Gossamer Blue for a refined, blue-tone gray.

I hope this helps!
