Better Paint Colors for New Apartment?

Better Paint Colors for New Apartment?

Q: I need design help for my first (very small) condo. I will be moving in September and need some color suggestions for the bedroom, living room and entrance way...

I've already picked out my furniture (chair, couch and bed) and I was thinking of keeping the living room red, but hate the color of the bedroom and entrance way. I was thinking some shade of blue for the entrance and darkish green for the bedroom. I would like to have a modern contemporary feel to the place. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Editor: We love analogous colors for small spaces — subtle tone on tone transitions from one space to the next. It has the effect of making the entire space feel much larger because no one area is starkly different than another. With this dark black furniture, we'd suggest blues and greens in the gray family (less colorful, more neutral) and finish it off with crisp white linens and a few striped accents.

Your question made us think of this great modern condo in the North End — lots of tone on tone colors with dark wood. We think you'll find a lot of inspiration in the house tour: North End Contemporary Renovation.
