As a Home Stager & Color Consultant, I see a lot of Oak cabinets and my goal is to make them look fresh and updated. Sometimes it's as simple as choosing the right color for the walls.

    I need a suggestion for a master bedroom that has medium oak trim and similar tone wood floor but it is imported wood. Our furniture is white. Any recommendations? I was thinking of Benjamin Moore Northhampton Putty or a light blue gray.

  • We will be doing our den over with white wainscoting. Oak trim. Room has one window and a back porch sliding door for lighting. Hardwood flooring. Our furniture is brown. What colors do you recommend for doors and walls. Leaning towards grays or a mocha.

    I have kitchen walls that are a soft pale yellow from the Benjamin Moore Historical colors collection. I am planning a redo of my kitchen. We have red oak floors, moldings and cabinets now. What do you suggest we change the cabinets to? I am keeping rest the same due to finances.
