What color?

I am trying to make my plans in advance before spring time. What color should I repaint my living room. It's about same size as doublewide size trailer. it's more narrow than width. I want to beable to match other colors easily with it. my couch is pain with maroon,navy blue light grey and tanish muti-colors. my wooden floor is redish cheery wood.. what do you think would look bright but nice. don't like dark colors. Also need colors for 3 other smaller rooms. Thanks!

  • i love the look of wood floors and a very soft yellow color on the walls with white crown molding...its bright and welcoming and still tradition with a modern twist

  • The only suggestion I have is to take a picture of your living room furniture and go to Home Depot or wherever you going to get the paint from and try to find a color you like. Sometimes they have color strips to bring home to see how it would look on the walls.
