Douglas first painted the cabinets a base color, then mixed shades 50% lighter and 150% darker to stripe the wall. "It's also a very architectural way of using color," she says.

The Color: Coral

"This is warm and inviting. It reminds me of the glow of the sun. When I look at it, I feel as if I'm on an island in the Caribbean, which is a retreat for me and where I find most of my inspiration. I'd layer it with natural linens and white trim." —Elsa Soyars

valspar purple royalty
The Color: Purple

"I find it rela whenever any dark, rich color is used throughout a room. Your eye is not jumping from dark walls to light trim, and you sink into the color just as you'd sink into a comfortable sofa. It's almost as if you're swimming in it. And it opens up the space, because you can't see where the boundaries are." —Eddie Lee

The Color: Blue-Gray

"This cloudy shade of blue with gray undertones reminds me of the quietness of a rainy day, when you can just curl up in bed and relax. It would turn any room into a refuge. Combine it with more intense shades of gray and blue if you want more impact. A salmon or a deep sage would also look stunning against it." —Paul Corrie

The Color: Light Green

"Imagine sitting back in a wicker chair on a veranda, sipping a martini, and reading F. Scott Fitzgerald. This lightest of greens has the dappled, fading light of a summer afternoon. It allows you to be quiet. It doesn't shout; it's still." —Whitney Stewart

The Color: Blue-Green

"This blue-green is blended with just enough gray to warm cool colors that can sometimes be too icy, and just enough white to soften the tone without fading it. We've used it in a bedroom to create a peaceful retreat that still feels cheerful. It sets off wood floors and furniture and looks fresh with white trim, so it works with many styles." —Mara Miller

benjamin moore winter gray
The Color: Gray Lilac

"I always wanted a lilac bedroom and went through a lot of shades before I found this one. The gray in it adds sophistication and takes it to a quiet, dreamy place. For accent colors, I chose earthy browns and creams, which have a serene effect and bring out the purple. If you pair it with brighter colors, it can get too juvenile and sweet." —Rinat Lavi

The Color: Soft Gray

"I think it's the subtlety of this color that draws you in. It's the silvery gray-green of a eucalyptus leaf, with a soft, foggy quality that envelops you. It would be elegant in a dining room with dark woods and a rock-crystal chandelier, or calming in a master bath with Carrara marble. Gray veining would pick up the gray undertones." —Lisa McDennon

The Color: Warm Gray

"Grays are my new favorite neutral, and this one is wonderfully warm, with an organic feel. It can be casual and comforting or quietly elegant. I've used it in a dining room to create a sophisticated backdrop, but it could also be very rela in a bedroom. I like a satin finish for a richer look with greater durability." —Ann Wisniewski

The Color: Pale Blue

"Everyone — men and women alike — loves this color. It's a pale blue with a lot of green in it, and it's a little dirty, which makes it more complex than the typical pastel. I've used it everywhere, from kitchens to bedrooms. I even painted my office in it. People walk in and say, 'This is how I want my house to feel.'" —Cathy Kincaid

The Color: Aqua

"Aqua reminds me of the carefree spirit of summer. This particular shade has more of a green cast, and that transports me to remote tropical beaches shaded by palm trees and lapped by waves — a perfect image for a bathroom. What's better than lying in the tub and being embraced by a color that captures that tranquillity?" —Kerry Joyce
