Grey is Grand

Judy Writes: We are remodeling our master bath in marble with a grey tile floor. We are also re-carpeting and painting the master bedroom.  We have had light tan walls and carpet and I don't think that I want to go with grey carpet--I think that I would be limited by it in the future.  We have two dogs, so I also don't want anything too light for the carpet.  Do you have any suggestions for colors on the wall and floors that would not clash with the marble/grey in the bathroom, but would remain neutral enough for us to us any bedspread that we might choose in the future? Thanks See Answer From Lindsay Ballard »

Passionate About Purple

Megan Writes: I have painted my daughters room Victorian purple and her comforter matches. I also painted her little side desk plum. I have a big desk that needs to be painted. She likes black but I don't want to go there, and white just seems so boring. What do you recommend as far as color for this desk? Thanks! See Answer From Erika Ward »

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 »
