Painting

Can anyone give me advice on interior paint colours? We originally had the green on the walls but decided to do grey on the one wall. Now we can see that the green and grey to not look that good together. Should we paint all of the green a grey colour? Paint the green the light colour that the rest of the walls are? Leave it? My one concern is that we will lose the tile around the fireplace if we paint that part grey. I also don't want to do too much in the dark grey because our house is not the biggest:)
(I know the grey looks blue in the above picture, but it is really grey...I hope!)
Green Wall #1 above

Green Wall #2 (do you see how I would `lose' the tiles around the fireplace if it was grey?)
Also, I was told yesterday that 3 colours in a small space is not a good idea:) So....any thoughts?

  2. I think if you pick a nice light neutral color that complements both the grey and the other light neutral color, that would look great. I think the bit of dark grey that you do have looks nice.
