Ask A Decorator: Pro Color Pairing Tips

Beige and BlueA reader asked: “My family room is 23×14′, and I have peacock-blue, floor length curtains and beige carpeting. What color would look best on my walls?”

Paula, a residential paint color expert at CertaPro Painters of Bowie, says:  I have found that when working with carpet and wall decorations,  Sherwin Williams shades of beige work best on walls. If you like lighter shades of beige, I recommend SW6106 Kilim Beige. If you’re looking for something with a richer hue, then SW6108 Latte might be more your style. I use these two colors frequently as a main and accent wall. They compliment many ranges of colors in decorating your home. Check out some of our previous work for use of these colors in other homes!

    What paint color would go best with this comforter sardinia comforter set made by Echo? I have high vaulted ceilings that currently are a beige and the same as the walls. When I paint this bedroom should I also paint the ceiling the same color or change it to an off white?
