To anyone interested in interior design - I have a home which is about ten years old now and in need of some upkeep. Trim in every room is a soft warm white, very light, and ceilings are a similar off-white. I like the white trim - unifies the various rooms - and want to keep that. The walls in the main area of the house (kitchen, dinette, living and hall)are a light ivory with rose overtones. I have paint matched to this and am planning to touch up only in this area. It has some nice architectural details which are set off by crown molding, pretty clean and open design. If it were to be painted I would have to hire it done because of high vaulted ceilings, and that is something I absolutely can not afford to do at this time. The problem is I don't know what color to paint the other rooms - two small bedrooms, master and two small baths. My inclination had been to keep the white woodwork, paint the walls in the bedrooms (master, guest room, office)a very light shade of cactus green and the baths just a little darker green in the same family, but somehow that does not seem right. Everything now is currently white, and I do want some color, but am not sure what to do. I have the feeling the smaller rooms would look best in a shade lighter than the main area of the house, but that would end up being almost no color at all. My house has a mish-mash of furniture - antiques from my grandmother, forties and fifties early American stuff from my parents, a grand piano from my grandmother. I'd characterize it as somewhere between traditional and eclectic. Colors in furnishings are in various shades of green, some burgundy-brick, some lighter neutrals. Flooring/carpet is light beige. Woods are mixed. I like light warm colors. Does anyone have any suggestions? I am hoping I can do this. I thought if I just tackled a little at a time throughout the winter and set a goal of a room every two weeks with a break - my energy levels are really low, but having all this stuff that needs to be done in the background is not helping. I just don't want to make some major mistake in color to compound things. Thank you for any input at all!
