I am in need of some advice. I have ordered a purple carpet for my hall stairs and landing, but am stuck for a coordinating color for the walls. I would like it to look as classy as possible; what colors would you recommend?

Thank you!

Go With Neutrals



My daughter and I are painting her living/kitchen loft space next week.  She is looking to me for some color advice.  We have some ideas, but I would love to check in with you for some advice or thoughts.  The space has 12 foot ceilings and is an urban contemporary space with golden maple cabinets and similar toned wood floors.  It has a black granite bar and counter space, with off-white trim and plenty of light.  We’re looking for wall color to keep it sophisticated, clean and timeless.  She is considering Glidden's pale lemon.  Any other ideas or thoughts?

Warm Tones to Compliment Brick


I have a "used" or distressed brick fireplace in our family room. I am installing hickory wood floors, with 6 inch white baseboards.

I am looking for a paint color for the walls in either a soft gold, creamy ivory or pumpkin color.  I do not want the pumpkin color to look cheap against the brick, so thinking gold might be better?

Any advice is appreciated! Thanks

Working with Copper Accents


I am at a loss! I have natural pine cabinets (med color) & light gray floors (Kenecto Mist). I want to paint my backsplash & front of the island. My lights are copper verde & most other colors are neutral. Please suggest a color that will tie it all together!

Accent Color Dilemma


Hi There,

We just re-did our kitchen. We have dark cherry cabinets and yellow walls. Our counter top is quartz and has cream, brown, black and copper in them. Our floor is tan tile. What color would you recommend I use for a pop of color around the room?

Colors for Young Adults



I am trying to paint with paint colors that can set a positive, happy mood. My problem is my kids are adults.

One room is a studio with the kitchen next to the living room/bedroom for my son.

My daughter is starting to enjoy more color but she was in a black and white color base for a long time. Most of her furniture is black. I would like to choose a color that will make her feel happy. Any suggestions?
