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 »

Bliss in the Bedroom

Emilie Writes: I am wondering what color I should paint the walls in my master bedroom. I have gorgeous refinished oak floors and white trim. I have chosen a chevron patterned rug in a grey-blue and natural tone, the bedding is paisley with grey, slate blue and yellow on a white background. I have grey blue, yellow and white accent pillows. The iron headboard is black. The curtains are white with grey trees and the furniture is painted either white, black or grey. The room gets great light and I have a mirrored nightstand which reflects nicely. With all the grey and blue, I wonder if I should just go with a neutral white on the walls.

Shades of Grey for a Soothing Slumber

Carol Writes: I would like to paint my bedroom three shades of grey.  One color for one wall and the ceiling as well as one color for the other three walls and another for the trim and doors. I would like the trim and doors to be the darkest color in the room. I do not want tones of pink, green, or blue in the grey and I would generally prefer warmer tones.  Only the trim and doors should be the darker shade.   Additionally, the carpet is very light and there are two window frames, baseboards and louvered closet doors.  See Answer From Erika Ward »
