Stair runner? I love the entire space! - Michael you are so gifted at what you do. I am curious about the runner in this space. What did you use? What do you typically use and recommend for stairs with high traffic volume that will stand the test of time and wear well?

Thanks for the kind words. I typically specify a fairly solid color 100% wool product for stair runners and either bind them in leather or cotton or have the edges serged. This stair runner has a tone on tone pattern which adds interest. I have never used a traditional style stair runner with mutiple colors and busy patterns.

Perfection! - I have a Georgian house where the foyer is in the middle with the dining room on one side and the living room on the other side. I have picture frame molding up in the dining room and wanted to do it in the living room as well but I'm not sure if that is too much? There is no molding on the foyer walls. Wanted to know your thoughts since this house has it in 2 rooms but there is more space separating the rooms. Thank you so much!

Need help choosing (faux) hardwood floor color - Mr. Abrams, I'm getting married next month & am remodeling my fiance's home for the two of us. Thanks to you, I've fallen in love with Shaker Beige and we want to paint the majority of the house in the color. So with shaker beige walls, mayonnaise celiengs, and the dark brown furniture that we already have, what shade of laminate faux-hardwood flooring would you suggest we have installed? I see in your designs that you tend to lean toward darker finishes on flooring, but I'm wondering if that would be too much with our espresso furniture...? Thank you!

First, I wish you happiness in your upcoming marriage. I would suggest a darker wood floor finish, it will pop against the white trim and use a lighter color rug to make both the floors and the furniture look great. Best of luck and I'd love to see a pic of both the new home and the bride and groom.

It could, in my opinion. Depends on the other tones/textures in the "space". (To me: the reddish tones of cherry/brazilian cherry that I've seen lean WARM not COOL. Creamy to me leans warm....thus my conclusion. See if Michael Abrams Ltd responds - he is the "pro" in this discussion. I'm a consumer such as yourself. Not that we don't have impact.....after all any good designer/builder may "warn" you but in the end it's your "space" so do what you will enjoy with some due dilligence mixed in for wisdom.

Home color palate - Hi Mr.Abrams....stunning room! I love the consistency of color used throughout. I was wondering if you could lend your expertise? We are currently in the process of choosing paint colors for our new build. Floor color is mahogany, trim is white, kitchen cabinetry is white. The floor plan is rather open and I'd love a light and airy feel throughout the house. My question I guess is this, how do you go about that without things looking flat? We love BM Revere Pewter and are thinking of going with that throughout most spaces on first floor. Would you choose a tone in the same palate that might be slightly lighter or darker to give some interest? Thanks for any insight and I apologize for the long post.

Wow - that's a great question. I would suggest the following; try interning with a local interior designer helping out in the office. Firms need help organizing the design library, running errands and general assistance. This way you can experience first hand what designers do on a daily basis. Another route is take a course in interior design at a local college; you do not need to necessarily pursue a degree but taking several courses can be both inspirational and informative. Best of luck and follow your dreams and they will become your reality.

I got a sample of shaker beige and it is much too dark and not how it appears in the photo. I found contemporary white in CIL paints to more closely resemble the hue in this photo. You can ask for a colour match in bher or benjamin Moore which are better quality paints in my opinion.

Would you use same color on ceiling and walls - We have a lot of detail on the ceiling in the great room and would like the moulding to stand out. It has a deep coffered ceiling and wanted to paint the wall and ceiling the same and then a deeper color in the coffered part. What is your opinion?

I had asked on previous question regarding copper/orange - accessories, which would be a perfect taupe color or a deeper beige, b/c I have the paint swatch of the shaker beige and it is lighter than what is shown here considering comp monitor and the lighting. I am interested in fall colors for my home...plymouth or valley forge brown for the living room, maple syrup for the kitchen, and then just a beautiful neutral for the rest of the house. Please help....thx

Shaker Beige on entire 1st floor and stairwell? - I have Shaker Beige in our Living Room and Dining Room with wainscotting. We are having trouble picking colors for the foyer/stairwell and kithchen/family room. Since we love Shaker Beige so much, can we use this color everywhere OR will that be overdone? Your picture looks like it is used in adjoining rooms as well. Thank you.

In this project I used Shaker Beige throughout the entire first floor with the exception of the dining room and foyer where I used a grass cloth wall covering about the wainscotting. The paint color continues to through the stair hall both up and done while the bedrooms and abthrooms and bathrooms are all different colors. If you have a nautral break then changing color is OK - if not I prefer to remain consistent.

Michael, I love the designs and paint colors of your projects. Is shaker beige the right color for me? - I really love the look of shaker beige. I have somewhat of an open floor plan. My carpet is light tan and my wall colors are off white. I would like to paint a couple of accent walls , in the family room/breakfast nook area shaker beige. My house does really well with getting natural light, especially in the area I am looking to paint. Would I need to go up a couple of shades, due to the current tan carpet? My kitchen area is adjacent to the the family room. I have gold/tan tone cirramic tile.

Michael, you did an awesome Job bringing this space together and obviously have a great eye. When it comes to beige, I often find myself gravitating towards Shaker beige and Bleeker beige but always torn between the two. Have you ever used Bleeker Beige? I'm curious to know what you see between the two colors. Also, With that, would you consider a trip to Northern Westchester NY?

Trim and wainscoting color question - Love your work! After seeing your photos I've chosen shaker beige for my wall colors. I may go just a hair lighter in the hall. I have BM's cloud white (967) that I had planned on using for all my trim and wainscoting. The ceiling I was going to use Kelly Moore's lovely lace (OW255-1). But after seeing the white linen you use I'm wondering if I should use that instead of the cloud white. What do you think? My floors are travertine, versailles pattern, furniture chocolate brown. If this helps. Thanks!!

Hi again to my favorite Houzz designer. I've used the shaker beige in my family room and adjoining dining area. I cut the color 50% with white to use on my hall walls. But it still seems a bit too dark. Is there a color you could recommend that would blend in nicely with the shaker beige or should I have the color cut by 75%? I also, used the cut version on the 4 small areas above kitchen windows but not sure if I like it or not yet. Thank you for your kindness in helping all of us.

Hi Michael, I had a client send me this picture in their idea book. I was curious as to the color because I knew it was not SW. So I clicked on your site. There was no way I was going to ask you the color,( only because EVERYONE asks the paint color instead of just reading on) I figured you would have it on here somewhere and I must say you should be knighted into sainthood! How you have the patience to answer each and every question is beyond me. Holy cow you are a sweetie!! Hats off to ya!!!

Love the colour palate. What's the colour used on the trim. Is it the crown moulding the same as the ceiling or the same as the rest of the trim? THanks!

Loving the colours! - I love the colors here and would like to do this to mine home. However the colour of the walls are the same colour as my kitchen cupboards with white bench top and choc coloured back splash. So my question is would it be too much if I was to paint the walls this colour? Thanks Mira

My sofa is off white with damask beige with very fine line (knoxville grey HC 160 Benjamin Moore paint color). My question is other than having blue (ish) coloured pillows, would painting a blue wall be to striking as I like softness in the room??? The lay out of these rooms are quite similar to mine. Thank you for all ideas.

Vanessa Brunner added this to Readers' Choice: Best Living Rooms of 2011
11. Readers loved how this living room is in the middle of everything, but still manages to feel like its own cozy refuge. Classically designed pieces in soft neutral colors make this a comfortable and approachable but sophisticated design.
Kristie Barnett, The Decorologist added this to Mood Makers: Small Rooms, Spacious Feel
This interior illustrates how a warm, neutral wall color throughout an open floor plan, along with lots of different light sources, draws your eye all around the space and expands the sense of size.Tell us: How do you make your space feel larger?
