  • I would go with a light single wall accent color---the furthest wall when you enter--like a pale yellow, or pale pink...the other walls would be white.

    As for the pictures I would arrange them in a cluster collage fashion--as they are in the frames, and make them the focal point in your living room with a credenza or small chest of drawers underneath.

  • A light Coffee color or pale grey.

  • white would probably open it up a whole lot. or even an off white might make it look more warmer and probably match the furniture better than a plan white would.

  • Paint doesn't have to match everything. Go with a lilac or something pleasant and not so dark, to open up a part of your house.

  • I would say a tan color or do each wall a different color like maybe one burgundy wall and one tan or off white wall
