Paint colors?

So I'm the worst with choosing paint colors! My living room sofas are a light sand color, and I have navy and white pillows and a throw blanket. I love the combo of navy, white and taupe but I have no idea what to paint the walls! Any suggestions? The living room is very open with alot of windows and sunlight.

  • me too! I'm afraid of it looking like baby blue though! Maybe I'll just poke around Home Depot and pick up 1000 swatches and experiment :)

  • do a sand/taupe color that is either a few shades darker or lighter than the sofa. Get some of those small samples and paint a small area near the couch to see how it looks. I love taupe on walls

  • I'm like that too, I can never make a decision on paint and so my walls are still off white, lol.

  • Sand or taupe is a great idea. Also, maybe think about doing a navy blue accent wall.
