Colour suggestion for entryway

tllwoods's picture

Our living room is painted Oxford White (BM) and a feature wall of Porpoise (Behr).  We want to add a punch of colour in the entryway room (approx 4x8) that will be unexpected but also match with the 2 existing paint colours.  We have dark (espresso?) hardwood floors, 9 foot ceilings and open concept living/dining/kitchen.  You'll be able to see parts of the entryway walls from all of these areas.We are thinking maybe yellow or "Tempest" by Benjamin Moore?Any suggestions?  We are open to checking out any colour combination.thx

Well, currently there really isn't any other accent colours.  The entryway leads into the living room, which has the Porpoise accent wall right in front and the remaining walls are Oxford White.  I didn't mention our furniture because we plan on replacing most of it.  I'll list what will stay.  We have two black/chrome leather chairs in the living room & a charcoal couch.   The dining room is painted Oxford white and has a long Ikea white table and then dark espresso brown wood chairs.  We are putting up an Edison Bulb chandelier above the dining room table.  We will likely have most of our furniture remain in neutral colours and add accent colours/warmth from artwork (not yet picked out).
I guess this is a pretty hard question, just thought I would see what people thought.  We were inspired by the front of the Trends issue, with the grey carpet and yellowish walls.  But wanted to see if anyone had any other colour suggestions.
