Are you thinking of repainting your apartment to give it a more modern, fresh look?
With so many color options available it can be a challenge to figure out what would look best in your space.
Here is a very contemporary color to consider (it is the new favorite shade of many top notch interior designers across the US). When you mix the contemporary gray with the neutral and chic beige you get an elegant, neutral and multifunctional: greige.
This new shade works perfectly well in any room, from the living room to the kitchen, and gets along with any other color and different materials. However, some matches are better than others.

How my friend Sean saved at least $1,000 on remodels by hiring his SUPER
A good friend of mine, Sean, has been living in his condo for about a year, until he started thinking of doing some updates to make it look nicer.
Its a typical older condo in the suburbs of Boston that needed updates in the bathrooms, kitchen, a coat of fresh paint and a few other small touch ups. Many of these updates could easily be DIYed, even by someone without much experience.
BUT… Sean has a Ph.D. in Math, and is as far from the DIY world as one can be. Moreover, he and his wife work full time and have two small kids (both under the age of 2).
We want to update the floors in our living room (currently its an old, worn-out carpet), and went to a bunch of different flooring shops and showrooms to check out our options and prices.
We are debating between installing a new carpet or going for a hardwood floor.
In all the stores we visited, we heard the same story: “while everyone loves hardwood, carpet is what actually sells.”
The A.J. Rose Carpets & Flooring showroom we visited is over 70,000 sq.ft. and over 75% of the floor space is taken up by carpet displays. According to the store manager, about 80% of their sales is carpet!
Today, carpet flooring is available in wide range of materials and literally countless color and design patterns.
