Q&A: Color Consultant Amy Krane on How to Pick Paint Color

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This photo is of Privet House, an antiques and curios shop in Connecticut; it shows what Krane considers to be a good use of dark color on walls. The space’s size and abundant natural light keep the dark hue from making the room appear smaller. Photo by Amy Krane

Here is our Happy Home layout with dark walls light floors for balance and double hung windows. Note the seating circle is in the middle, leaving the windows easily accessable. The dining table is almost part of the living room.

Dark, deep and warm colors expand and make it look smaller. This is not necessarily a bad thing, though; many spaces call out for dark, rich colors.
