Choosing Paint Colors for a Farmhouse Feel

I am changing my kitchen and den to country decor with roosters. I painted the kitchen walls in a brick red and want to paint the den walls a tan color. What would work with this feel I'm going for? --Jenny


Look for a tan color that is at the same position on the paint strip as your brick red (there are usually four to six colors on each strip). Your objective is to find a tan that is the same depth as your red; otherwise, the red will overpower it. When in doubt, go darker.

Whatever fabric you use for curtains and accent pillows, make sure to use it in both rooms to cross-pollinate the color palette.
