A couple week's ago my column was devoted to the power of color. Below are some examples of one-color/color-schemes, the easiest to create and change when needed. (1) Black and White: Always a classic, black and white looks crisp, clean, and'classy. Not a good scheme for relaxing. (2) Blue and White: Soothing and serene, blue and white reminds us of lakes, sky, and sea. This would be a good scheme to use in bedrooms or nesting areas. (3) Red and White: A red and white scheme is often used for patterned toiles and checks and provides a cheery atmos- phere. For a contemporary look try red and white with small touches of another dramatic color like black, aqua, or hot pink. (4) Green and White: Green is a relaxing hue. Warm greens such as sage or olive accented with plants create a wonderful comfort room. (5) Brown and White: Dark brown walls balanced with white will create a cozy attractive room. (6) Tan and White: Consider everything from a medium saddle tan to a pale sandy tone for the walls, outlined every- where with white moldings. Choose matching furniture to create a neutral palette. Color accents can easily be added when you're ready for a change. (7) Pastels and White: Pale colors look wonderful paired with white. If you love pastels consider painting every room a different tint - - pink, yellow, pale green, baby blue, and aqua- - for a home you will truly adore. Again, white will tie the spaces together with moldings and trims. (8) Orange and white: Orange is making a strong come- back in popularity. Even on a dreary day it would be hard to be sad in a room dashed with orange and white. (9) Purple and White: I vision a very warm purple with white as having a very dramatic powerful effect. Purple pro- motes creative energy. (10) White and White: Brilliant whites might be hard to live with for some, yet softer tones of ivory, beige, cream, and milky hues whites are tinged with undertones of color and can bring subtle distinction to your home.
