Q: We've recently moved into a new condo, and unfortunately, everything (and I mean everything) is 'condo beige'. I am desperate to paint something, anything. However, I don't know if I can paint only a few select walls to spruce things up, or if the whole place needs color.

I'd like to spend minimal amount of money for maximum impact, as moving alone has been very hard on the pocket book. The pictures I've included are of the space before we moved in. We've purchased only a dinette (which is a dark espresso brown), and a couch/loveseat set which is a neutral grey/brown color. I am totally struggling with color, since the space is so open, and because of the boxed in ducting in the livingroom and kitchen area. Help please! All of this beige cannot be good for my health!
