Paint colors.....


Color on the left is what I picked for the trim color and is called Bittersweet.  The middle one is called Baked Scone and was used in my living room and kitchen.  The Paprika card will be used in my dining room, the entry way as you come in from the garage and maybe the top wall in the master bath.  We are planning to put bead board in the bathroom and then paint above that.  The remaining two bedrooms, hallway and guest bath will be oatmeal (I forgot to take a pic).  Do you think this is too many colors?  I don't want a crayon box but I do like having some color instead of just neutral.   

All we've done so far is paint the red wall (see about four posts down at my Christmas pictures) the baked scone color.  I went today to pick out a new insert for the fireplace.  We are going to remove the tile, put in a larger insert and finish the fireplace out in wood instead of more tile. 



Should I paint the fireplace bittersweet too?  Arrgghhhh, I am already second guessing myself.  Good thing I haven't gotten the paint yet!!!  Going tomorrow though, so I need some input prim  friends. Any suggestions???  I would appreciate it!  Thanks!!  Chatty Kathy

Love, love, love that color palette! Can't wait to see it all finished!My input is yes, paint the fireplace Bittersweet...it will be gorgeous!

Yes, paint the fireplace! I am with you about the colors in a house. I think as long as you use the same color palette throughout the house, it will work. I am sticking with white walls, a dark khaki, olive green and a turkey red throughout my house and I just love it.

I love your color palette, too. Heck, who am I kidding? I just love Colonial colors!

Huh. The color cards don't appear for me, so I can't even offer my opinion. And they sound so awesome.
So, carry on.....
