Choosing Paint for a Small Bathroom

Janice Writes: Hi, I need to repaint my boys’ bathroom. When you walk in the room there is a white vanity with a black granite countertop with some speckles of blue. A small wall separates the shower area and the shower tiles and floor tiles are brown. I am trying to find one color to use in the small bathroom that will all blend well together.  See Answer From Melissa Michaels »

Lightening Up Wood Paneling

Tina Writes: I am going to paint the paneling in my living room.  The paneling was installed in the 80's and is a good quality, medium brown color.  However, I want an upgrade and to lighten the space some.  My furniture (which I won't be replacing) consists of a light beige recliner, burgundy leather sofa and love seat with a beige slipcover that also has a burgundy floral pattern on it.  Side tables are dark brown/burgundy wood.  Any suggestions?

Southwestern Great Room

Carolyn Writes: We are redoing our great room with new everything. It has two big windows in back and three long windows in front. The new carpet is a warm grey. I need to know what color of walls would look best. Also, we are going to get new leather furniture, because of our dogs. What color furniture should we get? We want to keep the warm look and right now we have a southwestern theme. See Answer From Diane Henkler »

Choosing Paint Colors for a Rustic Living Room

Sharlot Writes: I am looking for a rustic look. I would like to use greens in my living room, and in the past I have preferred more of a sage green color. I would like three walls to be a lighter green with one darker green as an accent color. My preference right now is the Dark Eucalyptus Leaf as an accent wall. Can you recommend a lighter green/sage color for the other 3 walls? I am using the Warm Caramel on the walls in the kitchen that meet the living room walls, so I would like it to compliment that as well.     Thanks for your time!
