Color, color, on the walls??

Okay, folks, I need your help again.  I've narrowed the wall color down to these two.  Should I go with the safe dark khaki (aka Mountain Trail) color below?





Or this soft green (aka Patina)? 



The true green color doesn't really come through.  Any suggestions on how to get a better picture?  I'm leaning toward the green, even though I turn green thinking about all that color on the walls....

I like dirty colors....so I like the brown - it is very rich looking.
Good luck !

i love the fabrics and both colors, although, like you said, the green isn't showing up much. maybe b/c of the flash? i sometimes have to turn it at a diff angle or turn the flash off completely so maybe try that?

Just judging from these photos, I would go with the first color.

I LOVE green!!!! That is one of my favorite colors. I just bought some drapes to go in the living room this year...and I bought different colors of panels...browns & greens!!! So...go w/ green. The two will look adorable together! Although...if you plan on changing color schemes, the brown would be better to adapt to later on...but then again, repainting is always an option! *ugh

I like the green. Try turning your flash off and putting the bedding and paint sample in the sunlight.

Go green! Is the room well lit with natural light? If not, that brown could make the room very dark. It also might be just a bit too much tone on tone- unless that is the look you are going for. I'd paint a 2 ft. patch of the green on the wall and live with it for at least a day and a night to see how the color changes. But I think it is the way to go, IMHO.

Hi Beverly! I'm sorry I'm just getting back here. I left my last comment in a bit of a rush. I wanted to explain my color choice. In the photos that you sent me it looked like your carpet was red/burgundy (I could be completely off here, that's just what it looked like in the photos). If you choose a green paint (which is the complimentary color to red) it will make the carpet seem even more red. that's why I thought choosing a more netural color would be better. Hope that makes sense. Have a great weekend...
