A Red Accent Wall?

anonymous Writes: My livingroom and kitchen are connected by a long wall which is the wall your eyes go to when you first walk in the front door.  In the kitchen there is a big sliding glass door that let's in a lot of light and in living room 2 tall windows.  The furniture is neutral mocha and cabinets and trim are light oak.  The walls now are all a light neutral but I want some color. My decor Is a deep red and burnt orange (the big accent piece also has a touch of goldish color) I was thinking of painting the wall a red color and keep the rest of the walls neutral but I'm nervous it will be too dark and make the space feel smaller than it already is.  Should I go with a red or a different color?

Paint Colors that Complement Brown

Vicki Writes: My question is, we have built a home made out of block but with sheetrock interiors.  The exterior has been painted a chocolate brown color. My question is I do not know what trim color to go with for my exterior doors.  I also have a dilemma for the interior cause I have almost espresso colored cabinets and I want to incorporate a grey that I can paint on my walls that will go with both browns.  I am looking for both wall color and trim color.

Creating a Cohesive Color Story

Jenna Writes: Hello!! I really need help picking out a dining room color. I just painted our entrance way a very light tan (more towards off white) and the kitchen a medium tan. I really want the dining room to add color to the first floor; my first thought was either an aqua or teal (the colors in our house are tan, brown, aqua, green, and red). However, I am having trouble picking out a color, because I also painted our front door Glidden Totally Teal- which I absolutely LOVE! When I painted the door I painted the front and back to add color in the entrance way, but now you can see it from the dining room. I guess my question is, what would be a good color to paint the dining room that goes with the different shades of tans in the kitchen and living room, but also with the Totally Teal door? Thank you for your help! See Answer From Eduardo Rodriguez »
