Inherited Aunt Jane's armoire?
Bought an amazing red sofa?
  • If you want your furnishings to be the room's focus, a quieter neutral palette on floors and walls makes a good backdrop.
  • When you think color, think balance and contrast: Combining brilliant colors with subtle neutrals is like adding spice to a dish—it's instant drama and excitement.
  • Color affects a room's "temperature." Red and yellow tones warm up a space; blues and greens are cool and refreshing. Today's popular greys are cool, too, while beiges tend to be warmer.
MORE TIPS
  • Many carpets are being designed expressly to coordinate with hard surfaces—so look not just for colors but for textures that complement each other.
  • The current crop of rich neutrals—like charcoal, cinnamon, cocoa, dove, and wheat—can add a great deal of warmth and style to a space while still being easy for other colors to work with.
  • Check the traffic! When choosing carpet for high-volume areas, consider a handsome, long-wearing loop or twist. For quiet spots, like bedrooms—something soft, plush, and pretty.
