Charcoal off-grays have very subtle differences in the RGB values but remain true neutrals, making them the perfect complement for most colors, especially bright whites, warm citrus hues and pinks. Because it appears so often in nature — think stones, storm clouds and the North Atlantic — it also works well in with natural materials like wood, marble and greenery. Cool charcoal pairs well with bright white trim and works with most wood floors. In a house like this, with period details and nice bones, it highlights the architecture while modernizing the room. Warm charcoal above the bright white wainscoting adds a lot of drama to this dining room but doesn't get too flashy about it. "A common mistake people use in selecting gray is using a 'cold' gray for a wall color. Grays with brown undertones can really warm up a room.
Coral, feminine and free, coral is a gorgeous shade to utilize throughout springtime or when your bedroom needs a face lift. It blends well with a lot of other shades too. Coral is a tricky paint color that many people don't list as a favorite, but I think it's a terrific color that is just misunderstood. Coral is often associated with tropical or coastal interiors, and for that reason many people are hesitant to use it outside of an oceanfront environment. It does describe the warm hues that define actual coral reef. It is also the color you'll see inside many sea shells, but don't confine this color to a beach house. Coral is also the color of the sky at dawn and dusk. I believe it is one of nature's most eye-catching hues, and with a variety of tones that range from reds to rose to orange, it works well in many spaces.
In the dining room or foyer, mustard looks great on your walls, and makes for quite the bold impact when it's used in heavy dosage. If you're wondering how to decorate the rest of your room when you have yellow walls, look no further. Since white and yellow work harmoniously to make a room pop, white furniture or trim will bring balance to the room and still allow for the yellow to make quite the impact. In a kitchen with mustard walls, consider having white cabinetry, and bring bright blues in as accent pieces throughout the room. This could be with dish towels, plates, appliances, or even vases. Remember, you want your kitchen to be a cheerful place to congregate with friends and family, so bring energy to your gathering area.
