Nice and Neutral

Jessica Writes: I want to repaint my living room but am having a hard time choosing a nice neutral color. The furniture is dark wood and the floors are medium toned, but the problem is my couch and loveseat; they are a reddish brown color (henna). The room is painted gold now but it is way too dark and this room does not have much natural light. I am also hoping to bring the color into my kitchen. The cabinets there are an orangey oak color (planning on repainted them white someday). Is there a color that would work in both rooms? Thanks! See Answer From Lindsay Ballard »

A Big Trend in Kitchen Design

Paul Writes: I have an old kitchen with white appliances, odd blue laminate counteracts, light blue walls. I would like to paint my old white cabinets, but I’m not sure what color I should shoot for. I was considering keeping the top cabinets white and paint the lower portion. I am thinking about a grey color or maybe a dark brown. I definitely need some advice!  Thanks.  See Answer From Eduardo Rodriguez »

Light and Fresh Kitchen Colors

anonymous Writes: I am renovating a tiny kitchen that gets very little natural light. I can change everything but the appliances which are white, and I want a color scheme that is light and fresh. Naturally I thought I should paint the currently brown cabinets white, but how do I choose the right white if I have white appliances? I've heard that a pure white is good to use when you have white appliances, but that without ample natural light they can look dingy (versus bright and sparkly). What are my options for cabinet paint colors and what other finishes for floors, counters and walls would you recommend with it? I am also open to non-white options. See Answer From Diane Henkler »

Loving The Colors Of Autumn

Theresa Writes: Hi, I need help with paint ideas for my bedroom and kitchen. My bedroom is filled with dark cherry wood furniture and is painted with Glidden Dapper Tan. My kitchen is painted with Venetian Stucco and has black cabinets. I love colors that resemble a pile of leaves; anything brown, orange, green, yellow, or burgundy. I know what colors I like, but I’m not sure how to put it together. I am looking forward to your suggestions and help. Thank you! See Answer From Diane Henkler »
