We went with a neutral brown color for the upper living area and a nice, earthy green in the kitchen and dining rooms. I can't tell you how happy I am with how it looks!

I love this green. It's a definite improvement from the neon-heart-attack-green we had in our Brooklyn Park house. I have a decorating plan in the works for this wall that I'm very excited about. It's almost ready, so stay tuned.
