1,715 Contemporary Paints Stains and Glazes
As one of the easiest ways to add color to a room, your paint color is often the foundation of your home decor. While beige walls can create a blank slate for colorful artwork and furniture, a bright blue, green or red accent wall can be artwork in itself. The same can be said for stains, which can easily help freshen up your contemporary deck or modernize an old, worn piece of furniture. Before you pick out your paint, stain and glaze colors and brands, be sure to consider these helpful tips. More
I love Benjamin Moore's Calm, which is part of their off-white color palette. This color is a pale gray with the slightest of lavender undertone. I would use it on the walls.

My home office is painted a dark navy, but I love this sapphire blue too. Really, I like any saturated color, so choose one that makes you happy. Blue is my favorite color, and it's also rumored to be the 2013 color of the year, so it was the perfect choice for me.
In my dream beach house, I would have almost-white walls, but the paint would have the fairest hint of blue. I want it to feel like a really bright and happy sky.
I would use Benjamin Moore's Antique Pearl on a ceiling. It reads a subtle lavender and works well with window treatments and wall color in similar subtle hues.
I'd love to use this time of year to inspire me to refresh a piece of furniture. My husband Scott and I salvaged an old dresser, and I'm thinking the saffron (bottom left) will layer some warmth into it and the guest bedroom.
This mellow, neutral gray is a great contemporary alternative to the traditional, old-fashioned beige.
The ceiling of the room is painted with Benjamin Moore's Cliffside Gray, cut with 75-percent white. This is an idea you could easily use in your own home.

If you're in the mood for a new look but don't want to spend a lot of time or energy, then painting is your best bet. I like Cool Breeze from Benjamin Moore for a kitchen because it's calm and quiet, allowing for the food and company to be the stars.

Most rental homes I have lived in I have been able to repaint. It's a really cheap and easy way to update a space. I especially love to use chalkboard paint, as it adds a bit of a bistro feeling to the home. If you can't paint a wall, why not paint a sheet of wood and simply prop or hang on your...
