Hide CaptionShow CaptionPresented with a rich Parisian color palette, Jane picks a color inspired by crème brûlée, a classic French custard with a crust of caramelized sugar, for her main wall color.
This warm, golden/amber shade is brighter and more intense than the existing beige and accentuates her coffee-bean brown antique furniture. For an alcove and end wall, she stays on the warm side of the color wheel with a raspberry truffle red. The chairs are reupholstered in the color of asiago cheese, a mellow blonde hue. The carpeting is replaced with croissant-colored hardwood flooring; lighter-colored flooring shows less wear than darker choices, which is smart for high-traffic areas. White crown molding is added to balance the light flooring. Gold and red accents and a picture of the Eiffel Tower round out the delicious Parisian decor.

Did You Know: Whites and beiges are the hardest colors to choose because you can't really see the tonal values until you spread them on the wall. After white, beige is the most popular paint choice.
