I agree with rdwj. The wall around the fireplace can be a deep, intense color. If you want orange, a real earthy orange, something very organic feeling, autumn leaves kind of color would be good. "Parchment" is a good thought too for the base color. I would put the red, which I am assuming is a pretty intense color, in the kitchen; with those cabinets, it'll look outstanding. I'd do both walls in the kitchen.

Looks like a newer house in pretty good shape. When's the housewarming?

If you want orange, one that's similar to the pic at the top of this page would look sweet

Here

you guys are a little too good at this stuff......

Thanks for the input, I do like that orange. I guess what I'm thinking for colors are "earth tones" a lot like when bird said autumn leaves. I'm sure SWMBO will love that since she is a hippie from Vermont.

A Couple more tips -
  1. make sure you use a tinted primer if you're using dark colors. They make coverage MUCH easier.
  2. Use the blue painters masking tape for your baseboards, ceiling and cabinets
  3. When you have a point where one color meets another in a coner, overpaint the corner with the light color and use an edging tool to make a nice crisp edge with the dark color.

Here's another.

It's a lot easier to work on a heavy painter's tarp rather than the rolls of plastic that you can buy at the Depot. The plastic is slippery as hell.

Boy! That looks a lot like my place. Just put the sink where the stove is and the stove next to the fridge spot. I don't know what your kitchen has on the fourth wall, but mine has a shallow pantry. very useful.

I really wish I had replaced the carpet before I moved in. The paint was new, all beige, but new.

the doorway that you can see in the kitchen photo faces the pantry. The 4th wall is just windows. All of the carpet is new but like your paint, it's all beige!

we have a huge plastic tarp that has been wrapped around a queen size mattress 3 times so I hope that's big enough!

The only painting advice I can offer is to get a Paintstick, the handle is filled with paint and it makes painting so much quicker. Excellent for doing ceilings and higher walls.
