Paint color placement
Hello all, I have just finished my basement quite small 650 sq feet. The living room area is quite long and narrow in some what of a U shape I have chosen the colors I want but not sure how to use them. The stair way wall is cut out (triangle shape) I was thinking of green colors Using Benjamin Moore 2030-50 (Dark-medium) for the main color 2030-60(Light) for the stairway wall and 2030-70 (Almost white) for the stairwell or should the stairway be darker. Only one small window at end of living area.
Thanks for the help.

I wish I could help you, I just don't have any Benjamin Moore color swatches.
I do have a good set of Sherwin Williams, and Porter Paints. I would definitely have to see, to make an informed opinion. Light colors in the stairwell are good because they help brighten the area. It doesn't take much color to cancel much of the reflectivity and the light diminishes accordingly.

The plan sounds good to me,
