The three areas were open to one another and we felt that the dining room should be the focal point. The client did lots of entertaining in this room and was going to be getting new furniture. She was excited to try something a little different in that room. But first we needed to choose a color for the entrance hall and living room. Those were the areas with the majority of wall space. The client wanted a warm inviting color. We chose Benjamin Moore 1122 Cocoa Sand […]

A New Kitchen and Den

I was called in to do a color consultation for a new addition that included a kitchen and den as well as some existing rooms. The construction had begun but only the walls were up. I helped the client finalize choosing the cabinetry, floor, and counter tops which should be chosen before wall color. Choosing those items is the most important part of color coordination in a kitchen. We don’t change those things every day. We have to be sure that we can live with those choices for many years to come. [...]

Using a Color to Make a Huge Space Inviting

The house had an open plan with rooms adjoining one another.  It was important to keep that nice open flow.  The living room was a huge space with a large stone fireplace as the focal point. The room was painted white with the fireplace wall painted a putty color. It was cold and uninviting. The clients had not chosen furniture yet. We needed to choose neutral colors that would look good with whatever furniture they chose. We discussed what their preferences were, so that I would have an idea of what direction [...]

Choosing a Fabulous Neutral Color

The center hall Colonial  house had not been painted in many years. Dated wall paper hung in many of the rooms. The clients not only wanted a clean new look but were thinking of possibly moving. They wanted the house to be attractive to prospective buyers. The center hall, stairway, and adjoining dining room were the first to get a new face lift. The floor in the hall was a tiled marble with a beige background and terra cotta veining.  The carpeting in the dining room was a deep eggplant purple. The [...]

A Different Color For Every Room

I had a client recently who loves color and is not afraid to use it. She wanted to have every room painted a different color. The question was how to make that work and look great, not just for each room but for the look and flow of the whole house.  […]

Red Dining Room

  Dark Red Walls in Dining Room Sounds bold and daring, doesn’t it? As the photograph testifies it is quite beautiful. We were choosing colors for the whole house.  Given the furnishings, we could get away with painting the entire downstairs shades of a warm beige or gold color. But the client was willing to try something different. The location of the dining room was the perfect place to add some color. We chose Benjamin Moore 2084-20 Maple Leaf Red, a warm terra cotta that was just perfect. The room [...]
