Default Who wants to help pick a paint color?

- North-facing windows: two large windows that open and two solid pane windows above them.
- Lots of bright, natural light but no direct sunlight.
- High walls and a high ceiling (the latter is currently painted purple That can also be changed )
- Floor is a blonde wood laminate.
- Going to be an office; sitting at the desk, the window light would be to the right.
- Definitely envisioning bringing in a variety of houseplants.

I tend to prefer really neutral colors (whites, tans, grays), but the light coming in through the windows is blue-toned and cold and a warmer color might be more enjoyable, especially during the winter months Or could a neutral color work with the right accents? I don't want it to be boring, but for a full-time workspace I don't want it to be "loud" either

There are a bunch of pretty beige/tan/browns that would look nice with house plants and feel warm. And still be neutral. Pick one that looks good with your blond floors.

I would repaintthe ceiling. I think you could do warm neutrals. I rent so have no experience with paint colors.

Butter colored that would go with the blonde toned floors? With white trim?
