Fortunately I've discovered that our local paint chain has a terrific colour-picker app which I've had a lot of fun playing around with. Its best features:
- A complete colour card of their selection of colours.
- Take a photo of a colour and have the app determine the colour code.
- Take a photo of a room and use the app to colour the walls from the colour card.
We've only been considering the first floor for now. The basement will come later, but likely we'll have quite a bit of a repeat in colours. I tend to like a larger varity of colours than Lars does, but at the same time I worry about it being too much... I just have to keep reminding myself that paint isn't permanent ;)
But here's what we've come up with so far.
The hallway will just be white. As all the rooms ajoining the hallway will be different colours, we thought that would be a nice way to seque from one to another.
The bathroom will be white as well. Mostly because it's white already, and nice enough that we don't have to paint it ;) Laziness FTW!
The 3 living rooms (lounge, dining room, library) will be a sandy yellowy-brown. That's the colour our current living room is, and we both really like it. It's warmer than a plain white, while still neutral enough to go with pretty much everything.
