Living Room Has Been Painted (Round 301)

I finally found a paint for the living room that seems to work with the new couches in both daylight and CFL lamplight!
Remember the issue I was having with everything that didn't look blue in daylight looking green at night? I wanted something that was either a light grey, or a light cream, and I found a Benjamin Moore color that manages to be both!

The color is called Timid White by Benjamin Moore.

You can really see in this picture from my mantle decor post how the color changes really dramatically with the light:

I had been looking for something with a bit more definite color, actually, but I'm liking this a lot. Lot's of options for accent colors!

Now that I've got the paint sorted out, I just need to figure out what to do with this LARGE empty spot above the couch!

I like the oil painting that's up there now, but it's just too small for that space (and actually looked REALLY good in the dining room where I stuck it for safe-keeping while I painted!) And Hubby was just so excited to see the large folding screen that I had up there before go away that I don't have the heart to bring it back in!
But have no fear, I've got some ideas and have been having fun with a photo editing program, so check back for my experiments!

I do like this color with all the new furnishings. Can't wait to see it in person.
