Help me pick a colour!
I'm looking for your thoughts/opinions. Originally, I really wanted the same green as my aunt's living room which is the green on the walls in this photo:
But I'm pretty sure it will look too dark, and I won't like it as much as I think I would.
However, I do like many other dark green rooms I've seen, like these:
But then I like some of the lighter shades, too...
What do you think? Am I just being a chicken and playing it safe, or should I aim for a bit of a lighter colour?
Why does it have to be so hard to pick colours?
Anyhow, these are the three samples of green that I have currently.
- In the top left is "Shy Blossom" (by CIL) which is a bright, fun pistachio shade of green (towards the yellow spectre). It looks pretty close to the photo above with the basil plant.
- Below it, is "Sea Drops" (by CIL) which is the colour I had planned to use in the upstairs "L" Room. This one is in the light grey tones, but is a night light green shade.
- On the right is one shade darker than the "Sea Drops" and this one is "Woodland Mystery" (by CIL). I like this one the least, and it's a bit too "drab grey". I'm worried it may look a bit too lifeless and boring, like the photo below:
I don't have an actual sample of the "Olivine" but it's much darker (2-3 shades) than all three of the samples I've got on the wall currently.
