I desperately need to paint my apartment! I moved in 4 years ago and my walls are still white! I have dark furniture in my bedroom and living room. My sofa is linen and my carpet is purple. Can you help?
Thank you, Alicia

To get the ball rolling, we say go with four colors:
We do a soft, neutral off white in the living room area, a darker color in the bedroom with the wall behind the bed accented, a bright color in the kitchen and a darker in the hallway.
We'd also go to your Matisse/Picasso poster for inspiration. The colors in that are most lovely and vibrant and seem to fit in well to your decor.
We would also highly recommend getting our book, Apartment Therapy: The Eight-Step Home Cure, and reading through the weeks on choosing colors and painting. A great deal of what you want to know is all right there.
