Maggie, One more thing...Because the living room opens up to the dining room, she should treat the two rooms in a way as one. She needs to work the Aquarium paint color, in small amounts, as accents into the next room (living room) to unify / tie together the two spaces. Throw pillows for a sofa, aquarium as part of the color ways of an oriental / patterned rug, ceramic lamp bases, some aquarium colored vases, a throw on a chair, or even a chair upholstered in a fabric with aquarium as part of the patterns color-ways, would help move the color from one room to another.

Maggie, have your daughter go to a fabric or wall paper store with a sample of the paint (Aquarium). Look for fabrics or wall papers that have that color (aquarium) as part of the over all color scheme. Don't pay that much attention to the patterns, BUT look at the other colors they used when they made up the fabric or wall paper designs. Those colors will all be colors that she could use in the next rooms. Comment by Fred Gonsowski Garden Home .com

Soft Coral Pink, Chocolate Brown, Plum-Maroon and Silver gray would go great with Aquarium by Sherwin Williams. Comment by Fred Gonsowski Garden Home .com

I think Marigold would be best used in a room that does not get much sun (North Facing). If a person lives in a city town house, or apartment, it could possibly give a more countrified feeling to a space. I think it is a color that should be used sparingly, as an accent color if it is an intense shade. If it is softened to a pastel tint, it could be used in larger amounts. Yellows can go from being soft and happy, to overpoweringly "Get me out of this Space, the color makes me SICK", so tread carefully, if you think of embracing this color.

I live in a 1950's split level house, that at one time or another, had aqua-tea, in almost every room in the house. The kitchen was aqua-teal, white and carrot orange. I friend, who is now in her early nineties said to me " In the 50's that color was all the rage" Aqua-teal is fine in small amount, BUT i had it in a two car garage, and even all the trim on the outside of my tapestry brick house was that color. Aqua-Teal, has to be the IT color for someone else. Been there Got Rid of That!
