Q: My husband and I moved into our first home, located in Austin, Texas two years ago. I moved in and painted the tan/beige walls white and gave myself time to decide on a color. Two years have passed, more dirt is sticking to the white walls and I'm ready to paint.

I want to give the room more depth and contrast, but I'm in conflict because of the lack of natural light in the room. I'm drawn to cool colors, but I suspect that using a warmer colors on the wall will help me get the look I'm going for. What color should I paint it?
