    well, i live in a cape cod house, so i have 2 dormer windows in my room.

    i was looking to do the dormer walls in the blue color, and all other walls in the beige color

    do you think these will look good together?

    If you go to Behr.com, they have a good color tool that gives you complimentary colors to whatever color you pick.

    Your two seem like they will look alright.

    they look nice together, but i would worry about how dark the blue is..dark colors tend to make a room look smaller..i know you are only doing it on one wall, but would maybe go a little lighter

    im kind off going for an east coast naval type thing, so the blue has to be dark and they both have to be kind off cold if that makes any sense?

    i actually got those colors off of behr :)

    i labeled what colors are what in the room

    I hate painting, but I do it because I know I will be neater than anyone else. I always get away with 1 coat, but I did a blue recently on 1 wall, and man that took 3 coats. I can see your dark color is going to take a few as well.

    Did you get your primer tinted? You'll get substantially better coverage doing that instead of trying to paint that navy blue over a white wall.

    The other lighter color won't benefit from a tinted primer, however.

    Generally in tinting the primer, a quart version of the formula put into your either gallon or 5 gallon can is used, as typically that's about all the room available.
