According to the color designers at Benjamin Moore, the forecast for this year's favorite paint color will be Vintage Wine. This rich shade hints of aubergine, or eggplant and may be the replacement color for the recent gray shades spotted on the web.

As we all know, paint can be the most inexpensive way to change the look and feel of any room.

Two summers ago, Husband and I painted our living room wall a rich brown with gray undertones. We weren't too afraid of how dark it was because it was the longest wall in the room. The result was great, it provided warmth without closing us in. It also became the accent colors for our accessories.

Surprisingly enough, it also covered some of the imperfections in the drywall. My favorite paint finish is a satin or egg shell finish for interiors.
