We both thought the Lotus Leaf was too green in the space, and would limit the colors that I could use for accents.
But I wanted to see it at night.
Definitely looks more blue. And so I'm not sure. We both like the gray and think there will be enough white in the room to not make it too dark.
And both colors would look pretty good with the rest of our rooms...we were concerned about the Lotus Leaf looking too green and making a 'Christmas' situation with the red dining room...
Here is a little representation of the paint colors we have throughout the lower level. I think that either of our contenders would look just fine with the flow of our colors.
So, my thought is to look for a rug and/or fabric for the windows before I pick a paint color.
I'm thinking floor-length curtains in the window nook, not too full, decorative only....with some 2" inside-mount wood blinds like these for privacy:
These are like the ones we ripped out and threw away, but a better color and real wood. But I could also go with some fabric shades, right? We need privacy because our neighbors are about 15 feet away, but I haven't decided what to do yet.
I can't wait for all the new trim to be highlighted by the wall color, whatever that may be.
The final coat of poly went on the floors and they are looking great! Hopefully next time I blab about this room we will actually have the walls painted, and my shelves up by the frig.
We'll see, I'm running pretty slow these days.
