Going Green

Peggy Writes: I have a 1910 farmhouse, with the original mahogany woodwork (which I do not want to paint). I do plan, however, on painting the living room and dining room this winter.  The dining room has one large window and the living room has two large windows. The floors are maple.  I would like to paint these two rooms a rich green but not too dark. The rooms get a fair amount of light, though the very large windows face north.  Do you have any advice on paint colors? All the photos I see with green rooms have white woodwork.    Thank you in advance for any advice. See Answer From Michael Wurm Jr »

Sleeping at Tiffany’s

Michell Writes: Hello! I need some help choosing a color for my new room. I am 14 years old, and this is the first time I am redoing my bedroom, so I am hoping everything turns out perfect! I recently received new white furniture. I was planning on theming my room around Tiffany blue, white, and some black. What color should I paint the walls? I am considering painting them white, but I feel as though the white furniture will not look good with white walls. I have two large windows in a corner, each on a different wall, and as well another window next to those. Please help! See Answer From Eduardo Rodriguez »

Bringing a Bit of Sunshine to a Fall-ish Color Palette

Anonymous Writes: Hello! My couch is dark brown and my fireplace has colors within the orange family. My cupboards are also dark brown and most of the accents are dark brown, reddish, green (very warm and ‘fall-ish’). I want a paint color to brighten the house, do you have any suggestions?

Kitchen Accent Wall Color

Hazel Writes: Hi! I have a 26ft long wall in my kitchen and a 12ft wide wall at the end of the room. The other walls have medium oak units, with black-grey worktops and black-grey flooring. It is north-facing, so there is not a lot of natural light. Could you recommend a color that won’t look like ‘too much’ on the long wall? Maybe a contrasting/accent color on the end wall? Thanks.
