About This Space

this area begins at foyer/entranceway up staircase, and through a large hallway. it is currently painted yellow on the lower half of what seems like a chair-rail, then is violet on the upper half, up staircase, and through hall. i typically paint my rooms with neutrals like white, antique, creams, beigh's (boring, i know--but i'm not into yellow & purple). the trim all around this space is cherry. (Banister, baseboards etc.) this, i do not want to paint. the problem for me is choosing 2 colors, one for each half of the chair-rail, which will compliment each other without being too boring, but not over the top either.
