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

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...

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
