This room needs to be repainted to coordinate with the colour schemes in the rest of the house. The main living areas have been painted in a warm white - to me feels like a champagne colour. This room is a nourishing space - to read, play music, write - not the TV space. We want to put pops of colour in the art,decor and soft furnishing and keep the walls and sofas neutral. The ceilings are high (about 3m). Initially was thinking about making the walls to the picture rail a half strength warm white with above the picture rails the full strength of the warm white to subtly bring the ceiling down. I am now wondering if I should do the opposite? any thoughts?
