Choosing a Paint Colors to Coordinate with Existing Window Treatments

Kathy Writes: The curtains in my bedroom are maroon and mustard colored, and made from fabric from Africa.  I want to paint my walls and I thought I should use a neutral color, like light brown.  Does that work or is there a better choice?  What color should I use for highlights?  Thank you.

Dividing a Long, Shared Wall

Mary Writes: My living room and kitchen share a wall.  The living room is painted a light grey with one wall being a darker grey.  This dark grey wall has a large picture window in it.  The light grey wall is the one that is shared by the kitchen.  Do I have to paint that shared wall the exact same color?

Adding Color and Contrast to a Light-drenched Home

Joe Writes: Hello. I have a large condo - 15 regular size windows throughout - and all walls and ceilings, including a cathedral in my living room, are white. It can be glaring at times, even with beautiful trees just outside, and I am considering a couple of accent walls for contrast. The first one would be in the living room behind a tan bookcase/tv platform. The second wall would be in the dining room which is in one of the darker portions of the condo, only one window on that side, large bright multi-color batik on that wall. The carpeting is tan and most furniture is a medium colored oak and there are large and small white leather couches.   Please give me a couple of ideas on color...I like terra cotta and burnt orange, if those are the correct names. Just looking for some contrast. Thanks very much. See Answer From Eduardo Rodriguez »
