    Windows, trim and baseboards don't have to be always white - in fact, sometimes white will look
    all wrong, and a creamy/ivory color (or even a shade of the wall color) will work best.For
    more, see: Ch...

    Based on your description, you already have at least 5 colors in your decor. So to find a paint
    color for the walls, it's better to re-use one of the existing colors, instead of introducing a
    new one.

    Even though white reflects light better than most colors, it doesn't add light to a space by
    itself. The only color that adds luminosity is yellow, period. I recently wrote an article
    about choosing p...

    another idea is to do some faux wood graining on your beams - with the right tools and all the
    how-to information available now, you don't even have to hire an artist for that. Yelena

    Most paint companies have some kind of virtual painting software available on their sites. I
    personally like the one from Sherwin Williams - Color Visualizer: will take a couple of
    minutes to load, t...

    The current stain color is in a disastrous condition - to make it look really good, you have to
    re-finish the wood (wood cleaners won't help much in this case), and it's very labor intensive.
    So even ...

    you can pull it off - as long as you stay consistent throughout your entire house (meaning all
    the doors have to be stained, and all the trim painted). Yelena

    I would definitely continue with the orange color - the bars are not enough to visually
    separate your living room from the game room, so the space still "reads" like one area. If you
    paint your game r...

  • Posted in thread: Paint Color Advice? on 02-13-2010 at 04:57 AM
    Since you have only 2 colors in the kitchen (yellow and purplish-gray), I would recommend you
    to add a new color to the scheme. The best-looking color schemes have 3 or 4 colors. My
    suggestion is sage...

    I'm afraid there is nothing you can do now except repaint with a new/correct color. Applying a
    coat of red-tinted glaze over the walls might add some red to the wall color, but it's not
    fool-proof and...
