    accent wall - tacky or tasteful?

    i moved into an apartment in brooklyn with my boyfriend before the holidays. we would like to paint. however, he wants an accent wall and i want to use color to differentiate different areas. it's basically a kitchen that kind of melds into the living room, that kind of melds into our work area. we have exposed brick along the entire back wall so that helps. anyway - i don't think the accent wall idea will work! what do you guys think?

    also, ideas for kitchen colors?

    and, what to do with all that space above the cabinets? i feel like there's a lot wasted there.

    It seems like the brick wall is already sort of an accent wall. I think you'd be better off with your idea of using color to separate the "rooms".

    your color definition idea seems to me that it would make the place feel larger, too. Im imagining three different shades of the same color.

    thanks for the suggestions/input. i think i'll use the 'exposed brick as accent wall' argument with him. i would really like to keep the colors kind of light and bright since our furniture is mostly dark wood.

    i would really love yellow-orange/gold for the kitchen, maybe khaki for the living room and aqua for our work space.

    never realized how much work it is to have your own place!

    I don't think it's an important theme
