Q: Help! After many heated discussions and many trips to Home Depot the boyfriend and I are no closer to choosing paint colors for our new apartment. He likes darker, warm colors (brick reds, browns, sage greens, burnt oranges, etc) and I like bright, ethereal colors (light purples and pale blues, bright yellows and greens) and we are having so much trouble combining out tastes....

Our apartment is rather boxy and we would like to have one color throughout to make it flow, with custom color in the bedroom and living room. After reading so many AT posts I'm now paralyzed with fear about choosing a boring neutral color. Please help us, AT, before we get so frustrated that we give up painting at all and live with our white walls forever!
