Arched open doorways create stylish movement throughout the turns of this foyer design. A sea green wall color softly livens up the space. Hardwood floor is used in each room for a cohesive and polished finish.
This transitional dining room features earthy accessories, which brings a sense of warmth to the space. The window treatments complement the shape and style of the dining furniture, and the green wall color pulls the room together creating a warm, inviting space.
White furniture shines against the dark green wall coloring in this contemporary bedroom. A large white bed frame is upholstered with velvet at the head and foot of the bed for a softened feel. Nightstands with nail-head trim support matching table lamps to finish the room.

With a view of glorious Sandia Park sunrises, this master bedroom offers a sophisticated, subtle masculine style thanks to well-chosen artwork, a unique chandelier, the leather headboard and the wood-plank ceiling. The sage green wall color was inspired by desert vegetation and complements the room's darker tones.
“Painting just one wall can completely transform a room,” says Erika Woelfel, VP of color for Behr Paints. “Pull your inspiration from existing kitchen decor, your favorite foods or BEHR Color Trends to find a color that suits your space.” The intense green accent wall in this photo is Behr’s Japanese Fern.
New meets old in this transitional kitchen design, beginning with the beautiful green patterned wallpaper offering a burst of color on a focal wall. The center island paired with the farmhouse table and leaded-glass window creates a sophisticated look.
When decorator Nick Olsen moved into his 525-square-foot studio in New York City, the walls were painted white, in keeping with small-space convention. "But the place just looked gray and dingy," says Olsen. And so, rather than just slapping on a newer, brighter coat of white, he painted the apartment's main room Oregano Green (Benjamin Moore 2147-10), in an oil-based metal enamel, to resemble lacquer.
"Although the apartment is small," says Olsen, "it's actually rather grand with 12-foot ceilings, huge windows and a high-relief fireplace. So I felt it would be a shame to tone it down with a pale color or white." For even more impact, he painted the doors glossy black and the trim white, and added a deep teal velvet sofa. Olsen didn't shy away from bright color in the 35- (yes, 35!) square-foot kitchen either, wallpapering the fridge in a bright spring pattern and painting the walls and the ceiling Sea Mist Green (Benjamin Moore #2041-50). "To make color work in a really tiny room like this kitchen," Olsen suggests, "paint the walls and ceilings the same color so you're eye doesn't stop at the ceiling line."
The tray ceiling is painted the focal color and is offset by soft gold walls and antique white trim. Schumacher silk plaid draperies and the custom-designed bedding repeat the hues in contrasting patterns for extra textural interest.
