Table of Contents

Question 1 HOW DO I CONNECT ROOMS WITH COLOR?
Whether you restrict your palette to two or three closely related colors or indulge in a riot of hues, you can achieve a feeling of flow with a connecting thread of color that runs from room to room.
Color Concepts: color theory
Question 2 HOW CAN I CHANGE THE SENSE OF SPACE?
Common wisdom says to use warm colors in large rooms and cool colors in small ones, but it's more complicated-and interesting-than that.
Color Concepts: value and intensity
Question 3 WHAT COLOR SHOULD I PAINT MY CEILING?
White is the obvious choice, but not the only one. Try a hue darker than the walls for drama; paint it to match the walls for an envelope of color; or choose a contrasting hue to raise or lower the ceiling's perceived height.
Color Concepts: color and mood
Question 4 SHOULD THE TRIM ALWAYS BE WHITE?
For crispness and guaranteed good looks, yes. For special effects, however, color can be fun and expressive. In some cases, stained wood may be an even better option.
Question 5 I CAN'T CHANGE MY CARPET. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
You may be surprised at how effectively you can disguise an unloved carpet. The trick? Cover it up, or develop a new color scheme that quietly takes the carpet hue into account.
Color Concepts: seasonal change
Question 6 I LOVE MY SOFA. WAHT COLOR DO I PAINT MY WALLS?
Fabric is the perfect starting point for color schemes in any room in the house. Learn how to choose a color from the fabric that will create the mood and look you want.
Color Concepts: light and color
Question 7 WHAT COLOR WILL LOOK BEST WITH MYWOOD FURNITURE?
Whether your furniture is mahogany, pine, oak, or an eclectic mix, beautiful wood brings richness and warmth to rooms. Enhance the impact of your furnishings by choosing background colors that harmonize with or complement the dominant tones of the wood.
Color Concepts: color and wood
Question 8 HOW CAN I UPDATE MY KITCHEN AND BATH?
If your home has tile or cabinetry in colors you can't live with, use paint to transform them. Even bathtubs and sinks can be reglazed for a fresh, updated look. Alternatively, use cabinetry and tile as starting points for new color schemes.
Question 9 HOW DO I WORK WITH THE COLOR OF MY BRICK?
Play it up with contrast, play it down with harmonizing colors, or paint over it entirely. Here are guidelines and examples to help you decide.
Color Concepts: color schemes
Question 10 I LIKE WHITE, BUT HOW CAN I MAKE IT INTERESTING?
Use shades of white with lots of natural textures to create a serene setting. Or let white be a flexible backdrop for colorful furnishings and art that let you express your personality-or change your mind.
