Color choices are usually easy for me, but I'm scared of this one and am driving myself crazy. I live in what seems like a tree house. I'd like to bring some of the greens from the trees inside. I have fairly high ceilings, lots of windows and great views. I would like to paint the ceiling "Zen Mist" but then I'm stuck on the wall color. I want it to be warm. HELP

Gina,

Zen Mist is a great color, but be aware that it's very bright, which makes it a little trickier to work with. I'm sure that's why you're having such a hard time choosing a coordinating color! If you like a bold look and you want to bring in some warm tones, you could try pairing it with a zesty orange like Pumpkin Patch. Or if orange isn't your thing, might I suggest you choose a rick, dark brown like Fresh Baked Pumpernickel, or even Walnut Bark? A dark color would really make your enviable view stand out, and because there are so many windows, you don't run the risk of the color feeling oppressive or too overwhelming. I think it would be a stunning choice!
