OMG. The anjou pear (onscreen) looks very close to the carpet color in the adjacent living room (and all upstairs). Wow. Does that matter? I like the color, maybe a little lighter? The rooms aren't very large, it won't make it too dark?

That color also looks very close to the Behr spiced beige (looks nothing like the swatch online) but I have the chip. That's one of the colors the guy recommended.

What's the general rule on wall paint color? Does it usually appear lighter or darker when you do the whole room? As in, when we chose carpets, they said when it's actually in that it will appear 20% lighter than the sample because of the size, lighting, whatever.

And what about trim color? And a ceiling color if I go with something like the anjou pear?
