I Need Your Help!

View of stairs from the front entry

View of stairwell from dining room

Kitchen yellow next to lilac powder room

Upstairs hallway (bonus question 1: where should we stop painting on the wall with the window?)

Yes, You. Loyal readers. We have one more weekend until the kids get home. We have one more place to paint to finish up. My problem? I don't know what colour to choose. This is where you come in. I need some advice, please!

I want to paint our stairwell. Here is the thing: once we start painting I think we need to continue it all the way down the upstairs hallway.

So far we have a chocolate milk colour on the living room and dining room walls, lilac in the powder room and front entry, and yellow in the kitchen.

Should I use one of the colours we already have? I think a purple stairwell and hallway would be too much. Do I use the yellow? Should I continue with the brown, or will that get too dark? What if we lightened the tone? I don't know what to do! Look at the pictures and tell me what you think, please!

It says to specify in comments, but we've already talked about it so.... yeah! You know what I think. :)

I think I would go with a cream color, or something light.

How about the brown on the bottom and either the lavender or the yellow on the top? If you're into wallpaper borders, you can divide the two colors pretty easily, also saving yourself a lot of trouble in trying to get them to line up.

I vote for a lighter colour of the chocolate milk colour. Probably about 2-3 shades lighter.
