Can The Colors In Your Home Be Friends?

I received this comment in one of my posts and it was blog worthy. Can some color be friends in your home or will the forever be enemies?

Can all colors be friends?

Question:

“Hi Donna, I have terra-cotta tile floors, my den is Navajo white-painted paneling. My living room is SW latte. I want to paint the entry (which views both living room and den) silver mist. It gets natural light. Also visible is brick fireplace which is soft multi hued brick form grays to terra cotta–kind of white washed. Do our think it would blend ok with colors I already have? My sectional is pottery barn everyday tweed-latte. I have blues and greens in den too.”

Answer:

Yes it should Christie. Your tile and brick are basiclly in the “orange” family and Silvermist teeters from the “Blue” to the “gray” family. They are complementary colors and are close enough to being “friends” in your home. Test them out to be sure.
