    Everything in this slideshow

    • Mountain Style

      Caramel colored walls are a neutral, yet warm backdrop in this dressy-meets-cabin dining room. The casual linens and mix-and-match furniture contrast with the chandelier and pretty pottery to create a room that is eclectic and one-of-a-kind.

    • Wine-Inspired

      The merlot-colored paint in this room is balanced by a calm cream shade on the bottom portion of the walls. Autumnal fabric covers the furniture; sleek black and chrome chairs add a modern touch.

    • Monochromatic Look

      This open-to-the-outdoors room is bathed in dusty red from floor to ceiling. The dining table sits atop a gray rug and the room's decorations, mostly fresh flowers and fruit, are straight from nature.

    • Contemporary Safari

      Nature meets modern in this distinctive room. The reddish-brown wall color is rich and earthy, and the white animal statue is a unique touch. The leather chair, zebra-print rug, and log end table add a few more natural touches.

    • Elegant Study

      Orange, gray, and cream make a sophisticated color palette. Bathe your walls in a pumpkin-colored paint and then use neutrals to calm the look. Silver and glass accents add just the right amount of sparkle.

    • Keep It Traditional

      Pale gold paint is the perfect choice in this traditional living room. Striped drapes, dark upholstered furniture, and burgundy accents continue the time-honored look. A natural fiber rug is cozy and neutral over hardwood floors.

    • Color Your Cabinets

      Be creative when adding a splash of color to your kitchen. Instead of painting the walls a bold hue, consider choosing a neutral tan and then adding bright red paint to the cabinets. Combined with vintage artwork, sleek counters, and stainless steel appliances, the finished look is surprising and fresh.

    • Country Charm

      This orange wall color evokes the warmth of autumn. Casual country touches -- the rustic bench, cozy blanket, and natural artwork -- add comfort to the space. The white trim, door, and ceiling really pop against the saturated wall color.

    • Horizontal Stripes

      Two hues of orange painted in stripes add visual interest to this dining room's walls. The furniture and floor are simple, but a distinctive centerpiece introduces another bright color to the room.

      Sophisticated Living

      This red-walled room is classy and chic. The white armless chairs have clean, modern lines and the studded leather ottoman gives a warm touch. The zebra-print rug is fun and surprising, and the huge windows let in lots of natural light.
