This month's all about the Room for Color contets: beautiful homes, vibrant uses of colour, big impact. Yeah, sure, they're beautiful to look at,, you think, but live in them? No way. I'll just stick with white. It's Yes, it's fail-safe and it goes with everything. Well, it's time to branch out. Here are six colours that are easy to live with...

Benjamin Moore Aura in Peau de Soie: is deep cream that changes with the light. Try this in a bedroom. Not only will your room look beautiful but so will you; the touch of pink reflects off of your skin and gives it a soft glow.

Farrow & Ball Stony Ground: take it one step further. Try this in a living room, with or without a contrasting white trim border. Its warmth is a good foil for both traditional and modern furniture.

Benjamin Moore Aura in Grasshopper: is a simple way to try out colour in your home. Not quite beige, not quite green, it's a good choice for a living room.

Benjamin Moore Aura in Pear Green: Feeling a little daring? Ready to kick it up a notch? This is a fresh option for a dining room. It's a natural choice with the organic lines of mid-century modern furniture.

Benjamin Moore Aura in Woodlawn Blue: is it grey? Is it blue? Is it green? Try it in a bedroom to add warmth and coziness.

Sherwin Williams Iceberg: We like blue grey in a bedroom, especially in a warm climate. It's almost like sleeping in a cloud.
