(Almost) Settled

Time for another picture... slowly but surely, I'll have more up. This weekend, I spent some good time putting up pictures and getting rid of more boxes just piled up in our dining room.

Our large (even though it doesn't look so in this picture) great room. I need help with ideas for paint colors. 
What should we do with the great room?
a) paint the walls a color (we were thinking light green)
b) paint the walls a neutral color
c) paint the walls neutral, but make the fireplace wall an accent color
d) none of the above... I'll write my opinion in the comments section

our mantel 

In terms of paint, we were thinking a green that would compliment our wreath

Our guest room... just waiting for guests :)

Even our Henry Hippo is waiting to be a good host.

UMMMM-how about a color to compliment the stone in the fireplace-maybe a caramel color to warm up the room.
Get some paint samples and put them up-it's the only way to tell.

Neutrals with an accent! I'd go deep pumpkin, russet, or perhaps an olive green. I wouldn't necessarily base your color scheme on the wreath, which may change with seasons? If it's a big room, go big with the color - it can handle it!

I vote for c! Can't wait to see what you do with it! :)
