I have just painted my my entire first floor with different shades of gray and they look awesome. The gray on the walls looks really nice with dark chocolate furnishings and hardwood floors.

Hello woodrb,

Like I said in another comment, I just painted a large, bright principal bedroom in CIL's Antique White, and I absolutely love it. It's white, but really warm, perfect for large open-concept areas.

Good luck with the paint choices!
