Dear AT,

Alright, so I just moved into my new studio, and am unsure what to do with the walls!

The trim/woodwork is gray... is there anyway I can take advantage of all these gray+ color schemes (gray and yellow, gray and orange...) or should I paint everything white and start fresh?

Secondly, because I've condensed into a smaller space, I'm unsure how they can all work together in the same space!...

I have a camel colored couch, which I'm stuck with, and a bright green bookcase that I love, but am unsure how to fit it into the mix.

There is a lot of gray, and even though its gets quite a bit of light, I'm desperate for ways to brighten the place up! HELP!

Thanks! Meredith
