Loving The Colors Of Autumn

Theresa Writes: Hi, I need help with paint ideas for my bedroom and kitchen. My bedroom is filled with dark cherry wood furniture and is painted with Glidden Dapper Tan. My kitchen is painted with Venetian Stucco and has black cabinets. I love colors that resemble a pile of leaves; anything brown, orange, green, yellow, or burgundy. I know what colors I like, but I’m not sure how to put it together. I am looking forward to your suggestions and help. Thank you! See Answer From Diane Henkler »

The Magic of an Accent Color

Faith Writes: I have turquoise walls and am planning to have black and white furniture, a white bed and desk, black dresser and bookshelf. I have ruffled curtains and a matching bedspread.  I am trying to find accent pillows. I couldn't find the type I wanted in anything other than a pale pink. Would two or three pale pink pillows look odd or out of place? Would adding a few other light pink objects help? Or should I just stick with white and black and go find other pillows?

A Paint Color to Complement Natural Stone

Tracy Writes: I have a bedroom which is about 13 x 20 feet. One wall is various colors of green natural stone and another wall is wood framed windows with off white blinds. The carpet is light green and off white. I would like to paint the other two walls, and I'm thinking of beige with green undertone.  What is your suggestion?                                                  See Answer From Melissa Michaels »
