Kristan Cunningham is an interior designer who's regularly featured on The Rachael Ray Show and is the host of HGTV's hit show, Design on a Dime. Because she is known for bringing affordable trends and inspiration to her viewers -- as well as using color in her work-- CertaPro Painters (http://www.certapro.com) has partnered with Kristan to choose her top color choices from CertaPro's new color guide.
1.AUBERGINE- If you're looking to add some zip to an earthy palette without going overboard, this is the perfect shade to warm up your family room. A great example of the color is Mesmerize (Sherwin-Williams #6544).
2.NAVY- It doesn't get any more timeless than navy - in fashion and in home decor. An evergreen of a color, summer pairs it with crisp white and fall begs for it to be partnered with yummy gray wools and lots of dark wood. Sherwin-William's Naval (#6244) is a perfect example of this iconic color.
3. CHARCOAL-Charcoal, like Software (Sherwin-Williams #7074), has proven to have legs as an all around great neutral. It's a terrific way to get the weight that black can provide, while still acting as a color.
4. PEACOCK BLUE- I can't think of a single color that excites me the way peacock blue does. Pair a perfect peacock like Dignity Blue (Sherwin-Williams #6804) with charcoal and ochre for a color scheme with sophisticated personality.
5. OCHRE-While lemon and canary yellows can overwhelm and sometimes flatten the look of a room, the caramel undertones of a good ochre create a warmth that
candlelight and cognac wish they could! I like Anjou Pear (Sherwin-Williams #6381).
