Brown is a rugged color, created by mixing all three primary colors, red, yellow and blue. It is solid, earthy and connotes strength and reliability. Also warmth, security and comfort: think of all the wonderful foods that are brown: chocolate, hot cocoa, the crust on a roast, whole-grain bread. It can also be rich; think […]



Purple is an extremely rich and sophisticated color. It is associated with royalty, luxury, wealth and extravagance, presumably because the dyes used to produce it were once very rare and expensive. One of the secondary colors in the spectrum, combining red and blue, it combines the strength of red with the spirituality and integrity of […]



Since it’s still autumn, let’s look at another variation on “fall colors” for decorating, either seasonally for harvest tables and Thanksgiving celebrations, or just for a room in your house, because you like autumn’s mostly subtle shades. Here are some thoughts from yet another “shelter magazine”: Try pairing metallic shades with fall naturals. Copper has […]



Wouldn’t you think “Decorating with Autumn Colors” would mean an array of golds and oranges, with touches of red and deep wine and brown? Well, at least one “shelter magazine” this fall decided that “fall colors” means brown, brown and more brown, and makes its case with a dozen living rooms from across America and […]

What is October’s prime color? Orange, of course—the whole range of harvest shades of turning leaves and gathered crops that denote the end of the annual growing season. And the month ends with an orange-and-black holiday, where you’ll see more of the hue than at any other time of year. However, orange is not exactly […]

Sometimes there are good reasons for living or working in a space that is smaller than the usual house or apartment: location, for one, and convenience, for another. If you go this route, you have to make choices about what’s important; can you live with a small bedroom? A tiny kitchen? Very little storage space? […]
