I'd paint a soft tan color.

Jodi Ingram said...

My living room is two shades of tan/brown. The darker shade on the accent wall. I love it! It matches my chocolate-colored couches and adds such DRAMA to the room!!

Woohoo!! I used an HGTV word!

RenegadeQuilter said...

I would paint my living room a darker kahki color. Thanks for the giveaway.

Nicole said...

I would love to paint my living room a soft grey to contrast my black furniture and whit picture frames

Cathy said...

We were looking at living room paint the other day and picked out Summer Cottage a sweet light blue.

Debbie said...

Well my living room is PANELING - BROWN UGLY PANELING - but if I was to paint it, it would be a nice light green - real green not lime, not chartreuse but green grass color only light :) I really love the Green Tea color.

Judith said...

My living room is in a colour called Pointing which is an off white that goes slightly into grey/green and that is what I would always paint it again.

crickets said...

I love your grey idea, but I'm leaningmore toward a warm brown suede...I' d accent it with a bashful blue....

Julee said...

We are getting ready to paint in May, the whole house. Light tan for several rooms including the front room.
I also like Peeps along with any good choclate.

Kathryn said...

My living room just was painted a lovely shade of yellow. So many colors go with it that it will be easy to change accessories with the seasons. Kathie L in Allentown

Barbara McD said...

I like the color we have now - a nice taupe color - but it desperately needs to painted again. Anyone up for climbing on a ladder??

Thanks for the giveaway!!

Sandy said...

I would like a dark tan with white woodwork....ours is 1970's stained wood. I also hear that there are now chocolate dipped Peeps this Easter. I would love that because I love chocolate covered marshmallows!

sranft said...

We have just recently repainted a rich brown color with white accents. I love it!

pinsandneedles said...

I would also paint my living room grey...my new favorite. I recently replaced my curtains with a charcoal grey! However painting will just have to wait.

Candace said...

We are planning to paint our living room a bold red. Which isn't much different from the colour it is now :) The previous owners picked some dingy colours and we want to make our house even bolder and brighter with the new pine floors.

JustPlainLaine said...

I would paint my living room light grey with a red accent wall! Thanks for being part of the Hop!

Dawn said...

I would love to paint my living room a nice aqua or sky blue, something happy but not too bright. Of course, then I'd have to make curtains and a bunch of pillows to coordinate!

Sonia B said...

This looks like awesome software. I'm just getting up the courage to paint my living room . . . the color is called "wheat bread" . . . because I'm so done with the golden yellow color that is there now. Thanks for the chance.

Jenn said...

I WILL be painting soon, every room in our new house...and my kitchen will most likely be Peaceful Night by Behr. It's a rich midnight blue to go with my old Americana decor. :)

Lynda said...

if I had a living room (we travel in a RV) it would a very warm color,I love tan's,browns,probably two tone,light on one wall, dk on another,plus lots of windows I love light

Angie said...

oh my...me likey this software. And peeps - I heart peeps. Though I've never tried them frozen. Hmmmm...

My living room - I want it to be a soft green, but I'm beginning to think that after being there six years with nothing done it may stay depressing gray forever. *sigh*

thanks for the chance to win!

**nicke... said...

white! i love a clean palate.

PatSloan said...

i totally love you! What a GREAT post.. thank you for being in the QuiltAlbum blog hop

psstt... Peeps are my fav too.. but I dont eat them!

Deonn said...

This quilt album may be just what I need. I just reached my max on flikr without having to pay for the account. Actually, my living room is already the color in your post, which I love, but I want to replace the 1 x 4" wood trim with some nice crown molding.

Jodie said...

If I could just take over and make it more girly looking I would def. go with the Aqua color that is in the Bliss fabric line. Then I would have a fun red sofa with pillows made all from Bliss Fabric. But instead it is more tan with some green accents, but I am getting ready to sew a few pillows to spring it up!

Elizabeth said...

I've been debating the color of my living room since I moved in almost 7 years ago! If I had more natural light, I'd love to go with dark blue or navy for something cozy.

Kathy R. said...

MY living room is in desperate need of painting. I would love a pale buttery yellow with white bead board on the ceiling. The room needs a lot of brightening up. Quilt Album sounds like interesting software. Thanks for the chance. I love Peeps too. Have you tried the chocolate covered ones?

Karen said...

I would paint my living room creamy yellow!

Gerri said...

I want to paint my living room two different shades of gold with one of those neat dual rollers like I did in my sewing room. It turned out fabulous!

Lisa said...

Thanks for sharing...think I'll check out Old Navy for some flip flops. I would paint my living room light grey with a pearl finish. It looks great in my bathroom. Lisa S.

Kenton and Marianne Ogg said...

I've been trying to pick a color for a year now! But grey seems to be a color that keeps pulling me, so probably something similar to the one you chose. Only I have brown paneling to paint, so it'll have some kind of vertical lines to it.

Elisa & Mike said...

OOH! I am a seasonal room painter. My husband just adores me!!! I am wanting to paint out living room a very light blue gray right now. Thanks for the give away.

Sonja said...

I´d paint my livingroom grey, too! Lately they said on tv that it´s depressing to have a grey livingroom but I think it depends on the grey you use!

Tami said...

Oh, my new favorite color is "putty"! It goes with EVERYTHING!

Deb McHugh said...

I'd love to do a soft robin's egg blue but I'm not sure I have the nerve to do other than a neutral!

Pam said...

Bay Laurel from Restoration Hardware...sighhhhhh.

corinne said...

I painted my brick. We have alot of wood in the living room.

Gran said...

I'd paint my living room this wonderful silver green color I saw in a home about 10 years ago. It danced with light and was both warm and cool at the same time. I've misplaced the paint color and company, senior moments started a long time ago!

Kara said...

I guess I'm boring. I'd paint my living room vanilla. I like the natural light that fills the room. The software looks cool.

Julia said...

Tough question since I live in a very old house with wallpaper and 9 foot walls. Would love to get rid of the green wallpaper and go for a more neutral color. Thanks for the giveaway!

krisgray said...

We have cedar door frames, mantle,etc. So I would like a lt warm beige with a darker shade on the half way for the open stairwell.

Snoodles said...

Awesome software! Thanks for telling us about it, and for hosting a giveaway! I'd love to paint my living room a nice, pastel yellow....kinda like the sunshine coming in the windows!

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

I would love to paint my living room a soft shade of pink. With all white trim. Of course my family would never go for pink, but I could see it with light green accents everywhere. But for now it is Shaker Beige,and it looks great :-)

Bea said...

Our living room was recently painted Sherwin Williams Halcyon Green and I love it! The question is: "What color to paint the dining room?" Gold or red? I agonize over these decisions...

soren2go said...

I would go for a very light taupe. Taupe seems to be a good neutral for everything.

Shannon said...

Love the quilt album - thanks so much for sharing about it! If I had my way, my living room would be a dark pottery red. Mmmmm. :)

Bree said...

awesome giveaway!
I'd paint my living room in a fun and fresh green, called asparagus, by Behr. Oh..wait. I did. I love it. My laundry room's bright yellow, though, I'm not much one for neutral. :)

Ly + Alan said...

I recently painted my living room grey! Dolphin Grey to be exact. I love it!! =)

Sallie said...

Buttery Vanilla sounds nice, but I don't paint! The one time I did, we had to replace the carpet. So my DH does all the painting now. Thanks for the chance at the amazing software!

Becky said...

that program looks so cool.
I actually JUST painted my living room finally. I went with a bold chocolate brown and I LOVE it

I am Just One Mom said...

I love Behr's sample jars! And their creamy paint quality is superb. My walls are covered with Behr satin & flat in their Classic Taupe (hard to beat that color) & accent walls in Ocean Kissed (which visitors always want to touch...)

cvdnurse said...

I'd paint my living room seafoam green - love that color!
Susan

Kasey said...

I'm lucky because we moved into our house in December and the previous owner had repainted everything recently in very pleasing colors- our living room is a warm tan and I have no inclination to change it yet.... yet!

KevynB said...

We are in the middle of finishing an addition to our home. The living room is waiting for sheet rock to be hung (soon). I would love to be painting right now...a very soft grey.

Melissa L said...

I would love to paint my living room a sage green.

Pamela said...

Something in between a warm tan and cocoa, not too dark, but nice and cozy!

Charlotte said...

I would paint my living room duck egg blue :-)

Angie said...

I already bought this wonderful sort of mossy green color...just have to get around to doing it.

Judi said...

maybe a cool celery green. by the way, love the blue flip flops!

Sharon said...

Hi Rachel I would love to have this software I have been watching it for months now. See I too love Pat Sloan... Let's see I would really love to paint my L/R with the longest wall being like a barn red and the others being a tan a little darker than eggshell... P>S I have to agree with you on the flip-flops....enjoy your day.

KristyLou said...

I am thinking a grayish/ silverish/ purplish color. Although it would match nothing in ther :)

Wendy said...

I would paint my living room a deep grape color.....

Melody said...

I just bought some Max & Whiskers fabric too - to make a quilt for my two dogs...how crazy am I?

I totally recognized your poster want as I am a big Friends fan too! :)

I'm on a springy light turquoise kick at the moment, so if I was daring enough to do some color in my living room, I might like to give that a go!

Naomi said...

Coincidentally I'd also paint mine grey, a medium tone grey, at least on my one full one wall & maybe a lighter grey on the others. Right now it's boring builder's beige. Non-descript. Which I loved when I first painted it on there but now I'm bored of it 2 yrs later.

Marlene said...

I love Benjamin Moore paint. My fav color for the livingroom is Feather Grey and my perfect shade of yellow is Oriental Silk. Love it!
Marlene

Peggy said...

I painted my livingroom a mustard yellow. It is soft and warm.

Cheer said...

I just painted my living room Raffia Basket. It is sort of a warm tan. There is also an accent wall that is French Country Blue. I love me some blue!!

Dix said...

I'm a Rachel too. I would paint the Living Room shell pink

Andrea said...

a light and relaxing cream

Beth said...

I am ready to paint my living room a taupe or light tan. Has tobeneutral so I can hang my quilts.

momma said...

I wouldn't paint it, hope I never have to, I love the color, it's a dusty sage/ lambs ears green. I have no idea what color it is, as it was painted when we bought the house, BUT it is the same color as our favorite room, that we did paint back in England before we moved to NC. I think that's when you know that's your color.

VickiT said...

How funny about the Peeps. Does anyone like them right off the shelf? I buy them and open the packages letting them sit a few days or week until they are "stale" before I'll eat them. They're so good that way. Never have tried freezing them.

If I were to paint my living room right now (and WOW does it need to be painted) it would be one of two colors; Frosty Morning WB620 or Shell Brook 690E1 both from Behr. They are both a shade of white with varying depths of purple tinted into them. I have VERY ugly Smurf blue walls right now. WHY I painted them that color when I bought this house I have NO idea. ICKY!

Deb said...

I've been reading all the comments. Great ideas, which I may have to use for my living room after I tear off wallpaper. I'm thinking navy blue accent wall with the other walls a warm, light tan.

Rebecca said...

I'd go with a warm, buttery yellow for the living room walls! Maybe someday :)

Clyda and John said...

I am jealous. I so want Gray, but my husband thinks it will be too depressing. He doesn't understand I really just want the pretty Gray! Sigh, maybe one day I can convince him.

Vera said...

My living room is the color I want! It's Olympic's Plantation Moss...a really really light green/gray/white color that changes with the light.

emeggs said...

I would like to have my living room in terracotta orange, like the sun in Tuscany.
Erika from Austria

~Michelle~ said...

My living room will always be pretty muted... currently Navajo white (which is a cream), but I could go gray. The accent furniture is black, the comfy furniture is a light blue, so walls need to be a soft neutral, IMHO (which is now a real word, BTW).

Julie said...

My living room has either been a shade of green or tan for years, I need some color! I was thinking about going with aqua next time. Last time I painted I was not a quilter, I need some colorful walls and furniture to go with my colorful quilts now! Of course I did just paint my bedroom gray and the colors really pop against that so I might have to go that route too!

Heather said...

I'm all over the grey too. When I was looking at color last fall, that's what I gravitated to. My bedroom is a lovely shade of grey called Elephant's Ear from Benjamin Moore. It's so soft and relaxing.

Kari said...

RACHEL POSTER
I have finally found a website that has that poster. Started searching for it since I read your blog post today. It is at cooltvprops.com and look under "Friends" for "Rachel's Excelsior Poster" 24.95

kari

H2Ogirl said...

Wow.. I'm just in the process of choosing colors for my living room. I'm thinking of doing a red accent wall with tan/beige trim and other walls. I may have to think about good grey

SubeeSews said...

My kitchen is a happy gray and so is my bathroom. I am getting the URGE to paint my bedroom and I am thinking what color? Why gray of course!

P's Q's said...

We just took off all the wood paneling in my living room so we're trying to pick a color. I like a light pumpkin color my husband is leaning towards a tan or cream. Thanks for the great offer!

Kate said...

I wouldn't - is that an acceptable answer? ;) Our living room is a lovely light cappuccino color that's very warm and homey. And also very neutral for when we need to sell it next year. I actually wrote down the name of the color because I'd want to paint future living rooms this color.

Mikia said...

White or a creamy color.

Beth said...

Well...you have asked the question of the year. I grew up with "eggshell white" walls, which we have in our house now. I think of them as soothing and a neutral background for anything we might hang on them. My sweetheart thinks they are boring. We will be painting. I'm moving toward a soft tan or a warm gray, but he-with-the-other-vote keeps nominating colors so bright and energetic that I might never be able to close my eyes in our house again.

Thanks for the giveaway, and thanks a lot (unsure whether I'm being sarcastic..) for introducing me to something else I'd love to have!

Marie said...

Cafe Mocha - I am tired of pastels and want to go somewhere rich and dreamy.

Betsy Lynn said...

I would paint it a nice warm beige. I like to change out my living room with pillows and throws to give it a different look, and the beige pretty much goes with everything.

Quiltalicious said...

I just painted my living room - the colors are mayonnaise for the walls, and arctic white for the ceiling. If I had it to do over again, I'd use these same colors. I love them.

Kathleen said...

I would love to paint my 3 walls a light tannish color and paint my accent wall with a deep burgundy....

Kathleen said...

Sandy said...

I want to paint it a light dove gray or tan. Right now it is a sad/weird pink color. We were going for a tan color, but it dried pink. Hate it and can't wait to repaint. I would love to win this software. Thanks for the opportunity!=)

The One and Only said...

Ok, wierd, posted my comment but blogger is trippin....

I would paint my living room the same color as the family room which is some sort of tannish color I had picked out....but unfortunately the living room/dining room area has two and a half story vaulted ceilings, which means either hiring someone or getting scaffolding....not at this present moment!!!

Miss Nancy said...

I would paint my living room area a lovely creamy color called Malted Milk. Love the light bright color. Reflects a lot of light.

Have a super great day and thank you for this giveaway.

Pam said...

We just painted our living room. It is a soft butter yellow.

I just bought Moda's It's a Hoot to make a quilt for my grand daughter. I can't wait until it gets here and I can touch it!

TheaM said...

I'm giving some thought to painting my living room a soft gold - it gets the morning sun, so it would be very cheerful in the mornings and less drab in the evenings!

love to try that software - sounds wonderful!

Ladybug said...

I would paint my living room a light yellow. It is the center of my house and I want it to be cheerful. For now it is the tan the builder painted the whole house when it was built.

Mommarock said...

Gosh I'm so boring!! I love that my whole house is cream.. I LOVE that about this house.. I do think it needs a touch up.. but I love it because I can just change the curtains.. make them toppers and they change with the seasons. My couches and floors are all neutral.. so just change the pillows.. and tadaa a whole room makeover in just pennies!! not to mention minutes!

Amanda said...

My living room is tan.

Jessica said...

I would paint mine light blue or a nice, light red :)

sleepycathollow said...

Sage Green...I love sage green, so calming and lovely.

Natalie said...

Oh, if my husband wouldn't get in the way I would paint my living room a nice red! I love the boldness and obviously I imagine it with the sofa and chairs in their upholstered in blk and white fabric. Unfortunately it is only in my dreams :(

maryc said...

Lemon Meringue! Happy color that works with almost anything.

Sharon said...

Actually, the place we just moved out of had 3 different (uncoordinating) shades of brick red throughout and the living room was a dingy cream with purple trim, so I am REALLY enjoying the clean, white walls of our new place.

Purple Quilter Queen said...

I'd paint my living room mocha. Jenn

Annie said...

I would totally paint my living room grey as well. It is one of my favorite colors, or if I were feeling more bold perhaps a dark red?

I too have been looking for that poster...this is where i found mine!! (If the link doesn't work...its cool tv props dot com)

My living room is already painted neutrals with a red accent wall, but my kitchen needs a facelift...maybe a green or yellow...something to liven it up!!

mugirl113 at gmail dot com

SHARON said...

I would paint my livingroom a soft blue. My walls have been white for years and a little color would be nice.

craftytammie said...

we painted our living room "grecian green" and it's the perfect combo of gray and green. happy painting!

anna said...

I'd go for a nice icy blue, or maybe butter? Like, real, closer-to-white butter, not margarine color.

JMNech said...

I would paint my living room a soft gray with brown trim.

Brenda said...

Since I am waiting for a very large doorway to be made somewhat smaller into my living room I can tell you I have been eying a very pretty green and some dark peachy colors.

Patty said...

Currently it is a walnut color but I've been eying me some grey color me likes it.

Celine said...

Well I tried my hand at wallpapering no later than last year so I wouldn't paint my living room again, especially as I still haven't done the curtains to go with the new paper. Bought the fabric for the curtains first and then spent so much trying to persuade hubby that the whole room needed redoing and the curtains are still not done.... well when I'll have some time. Anyway it is currently a difficult to describe colour, I would try tan with light silver motifs.
Thanks for the giveaway!

Shirley in Canada said...

My living has been painted in a rich taupey brown. Very wonderful with our walnut colored hardwood! Now for new furniture LOL Thanks for the wonderful giveaway and a great website!

Karen said...

After picking up sample colours of the entire Valspar blue gray range, I have decided on Shark Loop!!! Now to actually buy a gallon and paint. My living room right now is red, with primer and blue patches all over.

Melody said...

Funny that you ask about paint colors. I am trying to decide if I should paint my living room french vanilla or go with a dark tan. I need to have it fairly neutral to showcase my quilts.

Kim with a K said...

I'd paint my livingroom green and cream - just a few shades lighter than it is right now!
I always think I'd go white but...I love me some green!

Frances said...

I would love a soft,gentle green. Something easy on the eyes ans peaceful.

Val Laird said...

Thanks for another fabulous giveaway. I won't be painting soon because it was done recently - in a lovely warm shade of grey!

Laine said...

Funny you should ask. I need to paint my living room and have been thinking about what color to put on the walls. I think I want a warm chocolate brown. Guess I need to go look at some paint color chips.

lsandes@comcast.net

Giggles and Girlfriends Retreats said...

If I could paint my living room any colour and not get "that look from dear hubby", I'd paint it the teal of the carribean oceans....awe......relaxing!

Amy said...

I like the color I have which is a warm toasty color. I do need to repaint it but I think I will stick with what it is. Now every other room of the house, I am ready for a change. Thanks for the info. I saw chocolate covered Peeps the other day. I think I must try this. ;0

Laura said...

I'd repaint it green (mountain haze, to be exact). The color is fine now, but I'd like to touch up the scuffs.

Magoo said...

i would re-do our living room in a much lighter yellow/gold. (i just painted it 2 years ago...and its BIG...and i'm sick of the color already......but not enough to redo the whole thing!) thanks for the giveaway!!

Jen said...

I think I would go with a burnt orange, rusty color. Knwoing me it would turn out traffic cone orange though!

Tracee said...

I would have to go with a lovely fresh Antique White

Sew Good Lookin' said...

I'm loving the grey! I would go with that with fun colored furniture!

Jenny said...

id go with a hummus color.

mascanlon said...

A soft bluey green, makes for just such a restful back drop. No drama in my house...lol.

Annie said...

I'm a chicken ..... a creamy white or light tan. I like basic walls and then I use color in my accessaries. This way I can change them up any ole time I choose.

Bec Clarke said...

I would love to do a very pale green colour, almost so that you can't tell.

Nanbon44 said...

I am getting braver in my color choices... so instead of cream I would go a little darker... in shades of tans... plus add the gold to the paint to get some sparkles... Looks so neat on the swatch.

Sandi said...

Since our home is just four years old, I'm not going to paint now. In fact, the living room is painted a white that has a blue gray tinge and the room is empty because.......new furniture is what is going to add the color to the room and then quilts and artwork on the walls! Right now the room is a blank canvas. I got the call yesterday that our furniture has arrived and I can hardly wait for it to be delivered. Our previous furniture has been with us since 1985 and is now relegated to the basement although our adult son and daughter have both offered to burn it for me. :-) Since my husband loves it "comfortability", I am fine with it as long as it stays in the basement. LOL!
I love the idea of Quilt Album software and can certainly use it!

Valerie said...

Ours is only a two year old paint job, too. Tan on three wall is called "Cardboard" and the accent/fireplace wall is a fabulous red/maroon. Now if I could just get new furniture to go with it!

sandra said...

I would chose a grey, and paint an accent wall a red. Then I would use turquoise as accent color in pillows.

Megan said...

Deep deep deep (I'm talking DEEP) blue green. But just one wall, the accent wall.

Sel's Quilting Blog said...

Sunshine yellow to keep me cheerful and happy!

ladybug said...

We just moved into this house a few months ago - and the walls are the most wonderful shade of flesh/peach.... with undertones of gray..... it's fun to decorate on, because it complements cranberry, brown, red, and turqoise (in different rooms, of course) beautifully! It's much more versatile than I expected!

SkippityDoDahQuilts said...

Oh my...you're unleashing a monster here, but if my hubby wouldn't have a cow, I'd paint my living room hot pink! LOL, yeah I'm a little nutty, but it's all good!

www.skippitydodahquilts.blogspot.com

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

pale turquoise

Thread Tails said...

Thanks for the give-away, the Quilt Album program looks very interesting! Now - don't tell my husband but I'd like to paint a feature wall in the living room a sunset orange :)

Sandi said...

cool refreshing turquoise it will look great with my yellow couch and easy chair. Throw in some pink accents and you've got the colour wheel!

Patty D from NC said...

thanks for giveaway. living room is cream color.

Natasha said...

I would paint my living room a gray/blue color.

Ruth B said...

I think a light green since green is a neutral in my mind. Everything goes with green! Not a Christmasy green but more of a limey green. That software is awesome! What fun to be able to look over the things you've made and remember all the people you made them for.

Jots Mum said...

for once and easy one for me :)

Our living room is white and will alsways be white as then I get to accent it how I want. At the moment I have cushions in 'Sanctuary' by Patty Young and fabric cirlces on the walls which are about due for replacement as I can't even remember what collection the fabric is :)

Lee Ann said...

It depends upon the size of the room. If it's large, I'd paint it a deep delicious chocolate brown. Otherwise, it'd be a light brown color. :-)

The Rx quilter said...

Quilt album software, very cool! To answer the question what color would I paint my livingroom...uhhh no color..I don't paint :) but.....I would have my hubs paint a shade of gray/grey...what is the right way to spelling gray? Love the blog, Lisa in Texas

PunkiePie (Jen) said...

Very cool giveaway. I would paint my living room a soft brown. It's currently gray.

Quilter in the Gap said...

I painted my living room about a year ago and it is a portobello mushroom brown and I love it (two tones of the same color on opposing walls) but if I were pressured to paint again I would probably paint it a soft aqua.

Neat poster. Not a TV addict, so never saw it before. I am opting for a Pale Rose for my living room.
Thanks for the give-away.

I'd love to paint my living room a nice, warm cranberry :)

bethanndodd said...

That program looks SO fun! Not for sure about the paint color...I would love to go bold but my walls are forever tall so I would/will probably go medium boring tan/khaki. LOVE gray though :)

Laura said...

My walls are all off white but I wish I had some accent walls. I would paint the accent wall in the living room a mustard color.

Jeanne said...

I'd paint my room a soft sunny yellow which to me is a happy color.

kc said...

Funny you should ask - we have just purchased a house, after living in an RV for the last 5 years, and we are painting the living room next - one wall is to be a medium spruce (bluish green), and the other 3 are to be the same buttercreme as the rest of the house. Cannot WAIT! Bathroom (I know you didn't ask, but I'm excited) is to be spa-zen aqua & white. whoohooo!

Behr has a great color called Moonstruck. It is a cream/ecru shade without the pink of beige. I like using a soft neutral in the living room. I can change the rest of the decor with the seasons without having to re-paint.

I would love to paint my living room a soft gray with a hint of blue!

Whitney & Ryan said...

I would paint our living room a soft suede taupe color that coordinates with my new furniture...if you find the perfect color let me know!! :)

Quilt'n Frenzy said...

I love sage green!

Erica said...

I would paint my living room an off white color. That way I can mix up the other colors in the room anyway I want.

Vicky P said...

We are thinking of painting it in a suede pattern using a creme or a light tan.

Anne said...

I think you are right on with gray color. I would use a gray with either a pale blue or pale green tint to it. PS, Peeps are a staple around here, but chocolate covered marshmallow is my all time favorite Easter candy. Last fabric was Bliss.

quiltzyx said...

Pale turquoise.
Yes, it would have to be pale turquoise.
Boy would my bright red chair POP!!!

Oh, and you can have my peeps too.

TheBorman5 Plus1 said...

Granite Boulder by Behr!!!! So excited!!!

Susie said...

I'd stick with an eggshell white that I have now. I have 3yr old twins that like to...umm...share their artwork and the walls have a tendency to be their canvas.

Life In A Pink Bunny Suit said...

I'd start with a background of tan...add accent wall of burnt orange with the entry wall of a dark, lucious chocolate brown

Gladys said...

Hola! Mi casa fue pintada antes con mucho color en cada cuarto. Pero, eso con el tiempo, cansa la vista, por eso ahora toda está pintada de un suave color tiza, que necesito repetir este año! Se ve muy interesante el Sofware de QuiltAlbum! Gracias por darnos la chance de ganar! Cordialmente,

Lee D said...

I just called in a decorator to help me chose a colour for our whole main floor which is a boring beige now. The Quilter's album sounds amazing

WoolenSails said...

I am boring, I paint my walls a sandy white shade, lol.
I hang a lot of my art pieces and quilts, so I like to keep them simple, so nothing contrasts. I am going for the shaker look I guess, wood and white.

I always paint my living room in white, so i Can change accessories( pillows, curtains, etc) and it Look great with all colors. Thanks for the chance!

UBee said...

What a great giveaway! I need a new coat of paint in my living room and would love to brighten it up in there, but haven't decided yet. Probably something creamy.

Cherie said...

I would paint mine grey, too, and then decorate with aqua and lime green :)

Debbie said...

Fun answers to the questionnaire, Rachel! I was just thinking about the painting thing the other day. Now we have a light peach on the walls, but next time I'd like to paint each wall a different color! Something from the orange family, Something from the green family, and who knows. Thanks for counting me in.

Thimbleanna said...

Those were some fun answers Rachel! I've been pretty happy with my living room color (which was painted before my time here), so I'd just repaint it blue. Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

michelle said...

Right now it is a very light yellow..buttery...but I would love to paint it a few shades darker, just to warm it up, as it is so light right now that you just don't know it is yellow at all unless you saw me with the paint can!!! =)

Annie said...

TEAL!

Alyssa Grace said...

Ohmygeez! Almost everyone said brown/tan/khaki!!! No thank you!!!! My living room would be a super crisp celery green (sounds weird, but the actual color I have picked out is so georgeous! And it would have wide horizontal stripes of a deep chocolate brown...pretty!

Tamie said...

I did paint my living room a deep golden yellow color and I love it. It feels warm any time of the day. That said, don't ask my husband how many shades of yellow went on the walls until we found the right one.

stichnRN said...

my favorite easter candy is the good chocolate covered marshmallow eggs. my favorite candy period.

stichnRN said...

i would like to completely redo my living room......new couch, chairs, tables, lamps. the carpet stays, it is too new to change. it is a deep plum and the curtains match. i would like to introduce more blue, but probably the trim. i like to keep the walls light neutral because there isn't much wall space and it opens up the room. i would probably paint it an egg shell or other light color. i know BORING..but i put the zing in with accessories.

Monique said...

My living room has already been 2 colors: a light green/brown depending on the light, and currently a deep brown with red undertones. I would love to paint it a rich gray/brown, I think Benjamin Moore has the color and its called sparrow. Its beautiful! My only challenge is convincing the hubby on round three!

Donna said...

I'd love a copy of QuiltAlbum! My walls REALLY need a coat of paint. I'd go with a dark tan with white trim.

Quilting_Chris said...

When we re-painted our rooms the living room went Swiss Coffee, with White Linen trim. The ceiling is a very soft white, white to make it look like it is floating.

Ummm, frozen peeps are the best. I am going to keep an eye open for chocolate dipped peeps.

vanos said...

we're getting ready to start painting all the rooms in our house too. I think that we might go with a swiss coffee color. kind of boring huh

Grammasheri said...

I am in the process of choosing paint for my great room, and am leaning toward a softened palette of warm tan with caramel and sage green accents. Good southwest colors.

The Kaonohi's said...

I am loving the gray idea. So in right now and goes with so many things.

jeff said...

Ours is currently panelled (the good knotty pine stuff but still...) so it's kind of dark. I think I'd go with a nice kona ash type pale gray with bright white trim.

amy said...

Oh shoot, I'm "Jeff" above, lol...bf was still logged in :p

Cindy said...

I am in the process right now of deciding what color to paint! I am also leaning towards a shade of gray but not sure yet. Would love to win the QuiltAlbum since my memory is not so good!!:)

rebecca said...

I would paint my living room an off white. Boring but, fun.
Fun blog hop!

laura said...

My living room is already painted my favorite color (well at least one wall is)...dark burnt orange. Love it!

Stray Stitches said...

I think I would stay with the same color that is already there - a soft, pale yellow. Thanks for the opportunity to enter your giveaway!

Linda said...

I would love to cover the beige walls with a soft green.
