Dreary, gray, dilluted versions of true color are overused. Too many institutional creams. Creams can at times be lovely, but more often than not they are sad and feel dirty and dated. Instead of cream, opt for true, crisp white. Instead of sand, try cocoa. Any specific rooms that are great for experimenting with color? Dining rooms are a great place to try out your first move in the color department.
Case in point, the walls of the breakfast room are coated with a similar blue to the family room, but this time with paint, and as in the entryway, a pop of orange upholstery has a striking yet grounding effect. A genius way to get even more mileage out of a small group of colors is to do a flip flop of sorts, pushing what was previously used as an accent color to the foreground.
