A Colorfully Behr reader is asking for advice with high ceilings and lots of windows. Read on for our expert’s color suggestions…
Help!!! I have a living room with 25-foot ceilings that have cedar on them. My floors are dark cherry wood. I have chocolate brown couch and lots of windows and light. Looking for a dark color to go on the walls.
Hi Tracey,
Thank you for your interest in BEHR paint products!
Since you have high ceilings and get a lot of light, you have the flexibility of using dark colors for your walls without making your space seem too confined.  The use of dark earth tones that complement your red floors and ceiling would be best to unify the room.  I have found five different paint colors that you may want to consider for your living room.
Five paint spills showcasing earthy color tones.

Colorfully yours,
