So...Pink!

Imagine Writes: I have a kitchen with terra cotta tiles and am struggling to find a paint color for the walls that will coordinate with them. The cabinets are honey-colored and the counter is granite with pinkish streaks. I'd like to tone down the floor tiles so they don't seem quite so...pink! Any ideas?  See Answer From Nicole Balch »

Ceiling Blues

Anonymous Writes: My living room and kitchen are combined. I decorated in blues and burgundy. I want to paint my ceiling blue and leave my walls as they are. They are light beige. I just wanted to do something different, but don’t know how to go a darker blue or a light blue. I wanted a blue gray color to match one papered wall in the kitchen. See Answer From Michael Wurm Jr »

Choosing Kitchen Cabinet & Wall Paint Colors to go with Wood Flooring

Dan Writes: I just replaced my old tile floor in the kitchen with allure vinyl floor in vintage grey oak. I want to update my cabinets and walls with colors that would accent the floor. I am not very savvy on design colors - that is my wife's department. However, she is in the Navy and on deployment so she is not here to help. I would like to have this completed when she returns as a great surprise for her. Any ideas of what I can do? Thank you. See Answer From Diane Henkler »

Color for the Kids

Patrice Counts Writes: We are building a new elementary school in our community and would like suggestions on interior paint colors.  We are a small rural school in North Texas with an enrollment of approximately 320 low and middle income students in grades Pre-K through 5th grade.  Colors that are inviting, yet calming, but also stimulating would be great.  Any help you could give us would be much appreciated. Thank you, Patrice Counts, Principal   See Answer From Kate Riley »

Great Game Colors

Donna Writes: I am painting a basement (family room) and it will be used for our kids and their friends for movies, games (wii, playstation etc..).  I am a big Chicago Bears fan and have lots of blue and orange color on the walls with pictures, jerseys, helmets etc...  We have dark brown leather furniture and an area rug with warm colors like tan, green, red, orange in the carpet.  The floor is a light tan ceramic tile and there is one wall with brown paneling.  I really want a warm color and would love to possibly add some shade of orange on at least an accent wall and possibly add another accent color too. Please help... See Answer From Kate Riley »
