what color walls would look good with terra cotta tiles?

Problem by mickey: what color walls would search excellent with terra cotta tiles?
the fireplace is performed in terra cotta tiles (which includes the fireside). there is a copper door more than the hearth opening. copper ceiling tiles, and darkish hardwooden panelling that goes about two 1/two feet up the wall from the ground. the ground is medium/dim hardwood. proper now the walls are kind of a putty coloration (like the color of an previous band support) its actual hideous–the earlier proprietors did it. this color would also have to extend into the eating area because the two rooms are seperated only by an arch. also what colour do you believe the window remedy should be? the only home furniture i have is a reddish-brown leather love seat and a massive rattan wing-again armchair. i have two mission-fashion table lamps with amber glass shades. the hanging mild fixture in the dining space is comparable. whats some ideas for shade and possibly household furniture?
you will find a bay window in the eating room and a significant ambigu window in the residing place. the leading 1/3 of the windows are stained glass (amber, red, and white)
the ceilings are 9’6″ substantial if that makes any variation.and there is a crown molding the very same coloration as the reduced panelling.
whats a “window scarf”?
hey boodles: wouldnt a mustard yellow clash with the copper? and what shade of orange do you believe for the eating area?

I would go with a kind of mossy green due to the fact the copper. You positive won’t want to go dim, I’d also use a semi gloss. Probably texture it for depth.

Include your very own remedy in the remarks!

    I would go with a really rich warm color. Not any pale beiges or whites, but maybe a tan, rich cappuccino, or golden tan. For the dining room, I would use the exact same color only about 2 shades lighter. Therefore, I believe one of your walls would be the lighter color along with the dining room and the other 3 would be the darker color.
    I would go with semi-sheer chocolate curtains or a gold sateen.
    For wall hangings, i would be tempted to go with black and white photos or landscapes with white matting and black frames.
    good luck!

    Go to HGTV and play around with the color wheel.
    Everybody likes different colors…I would stay neutral and accent with red and amber. Others like to go bold.
    Good luck!

    Since the wood is on the darker side I would use a mustard yellow, or some sort of a yellow to brighten things up while keeping it “serious”. You could put orange in the dining room. I’ve seen these in many beautiful Mexican houses, done in the rustic style-which sounds like your furniture already fits! I can actually almost picture it. Also, green would make a good accent color, in the form of plants or pottery, it would tie in the bright colors with the dark wood and bring it “alive”.

    SAGE GREEN WOULD BE FABULOUS! TRY AN EGGSHELL OR SATIN FINISH PAINT, I RECCOMEND “CLOVERDALE” BRAND IF YOU CAN FIND IT IN YOUR AREA. NOT A DARK SAGE, MEDIUM WOULD BE GOOD IN A ROOM THAT SIZE–YOU CAN STOP THIS COLOR AT THE ARCH AND PAINT THE DINING ROOM A DIFFERENT COLOR BUT I WOULD SUGGEST YOU FIND A PAINT SWATCH-WHICH CONTAINS SEVERAL COLORS IN THE SAME CATEGORY AND STICK TO THAT ONE SWATCH–THAT IS WHAT I DID (MY FRIENDS OWN THEIR OWN PROFESSIONAL PAINTING COMPANY) AND IT LOOKS GREAT. YOU CAN USE WINDOW SCARVES ON FANCY RODS AND THE 2 1/2 INCH WIDE WHITE BLINDS (THEY LOOK LIKE REAL WOOD AND ALSO COME IN WOOD TONES IF YOU LIKE THAT BETTER) LOOK GREAT BENEATH THEM. YOU MIGHT WANT TO USE RED SCARVES AND ACCENTS SEEING AS YOU ARLEADY HAVE THIS COLOR IN YOUR LOVE SEAT –DARK RED, NOT BRIGHT-BROWN IS GOOD ALSO–TERRA COTTA IS AN EARTH TONE SO ALL THESE COLORS WILL LOOK GOOD WITH THAT AND THE COPPER ALSO. SOUND BEAUTIFUL

    DAMn, it sounds like a great house.

    I would suggest your standard neutral light tan/ beige, whatever you want to call it….a variation on the old band aid color, yes, but a world of difference
