Dear AT,

In my Brooklyn townhouse, I finally refinished the wood floors that had been hidden by ceramic tile, plywood and several layers of linoleum.

Now I'm trying to figure out what direction to go in with paint colors.

The living room hosts a Rochelle sofa from Crate & Barrel in Hydra (a sort of vintage aqua blue)...

Now I'm torn between keeping things simple and clean with either a weathered stone or china white vo. a deep, bold chocolate hue to make the couch really pop from the background.

Any thoughts?

I like a celery color for the computer room, but I'm also wondering if it'll clash with a brown.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks! Bruno
