That’s a very broad question kdee10!

Can you provide a little more info per room?

Kdee, I sympathise with your issues on your other post, re colour, but…..I often put one colour throughout a home with a few feature walls, I have done my home this way, I don’t think you will be sorry in the long run. It’s less fussy this way, and I very rarely do skirting and architraves a different colour these days. All depending on the style of the home. Your flow colour “Antique Ivory” sounds like a compatible colour for feature walls.
It got so messy in your HEN blog that I can’t remember wether you are even IN your home yet?? Are you? If so can you post photos of the rooms you would liked looked at?
I’m guessing maybe you’re not in yet so I’ll give it a go.
Theatre Room – These rooms need to be predominantly DARK, so I would choose a colour DARKER than your maroon lounge, I can’t help you here, as I don’t know how maroon the lounge is. Get some paint cards in the shadings of your lounge and go the darkest one you think you will be ably to live with, remember the darker the better! I would complement your window dressing with this colour as well, if curtains, a 3 pass backing will be need to block out the light.
Bedroom – Bedrooms need to be quiet and serene, with your Chocolate Brown Bedroom Suite, I would look at a deep cream doona cover or bedspread with possibly orange/tangerine and deep purple cushions, having said that lime green looks great with chocolate as well. Your feature wall could be a soft chocolate, not too dark. By keeping your bedcover a neutral no patterned cover, you are allowing the feature wall to be the dominate feature of the room.
Living Area – Back to browns again here….. Not happy about using chocolate again.
So I will need a little in put form you, how adventuress are you with colour?
Is your home modern? Are you ok with the new modern colours?
Lime greens/ olive, purple and Capsicum reds??
Check out the Dulux colour broacher, you will see what I mean. They have a Capsicum red wall and an Enchantress wall both will look GREAT with your carpet and lounge. Also look at the Slippery Moss, very nice, its in a bedroom photo but I can see it with your latte lounge.
I hope this has helped!!

In my last house I painted a feature wall with dark red! Feature wall had a window with chocolate border. All borders (skirting were chocolate and all other walls were china white (slight blend of brown). I thought that was working well.. but Michelle may reject all together!
I think the Chinese guy who bought my house loved the red feature wall

Cheers for that.. plastering wall and getting it even/smooth/square sounds like it might be above my patience/paygrade ;( I considered the door/window reveals, but…

Thanks for the feedback Of course you would expect to get the bush-off treatment from their engineer they are paid by the builder what do you expect him to say? As 2870…
