paint inspiration: dark blue + brass
We want to add color to the fireplace/sculpture wall. I'm leaning toward a dark blue. I was inspired by these brass + dark blue combinations. It should keep our beige brick fireplace from looking yellow and it would compliment our aquamarine lamp and desk.

Meanwhile those archiver squares I mentioned monday are helping us define the right color.
Our floorplan is small (about 600sq ft per floor) so we're planning a light, neutral tone for the other walls. I'm over beige. Any suggestions for a warm grey? Or off-white? We tested benjamin moore abalone in our dining area but it wasn't quite right. I do like the SW popular grey in our bedroom.
[ps] ...we still plan to do something fun for our dining area wall. My favorite idea this week is creating a design with metallic contact paper (idea via Lay baby Lay). If you have any paint color advice we'd love to hear it!
