News from Louisville Courier-Journal:

Jean Molesworth Kee has an architectural color consulting business, the Painted Room, and blogs about color at www.paintedroom.com. Here are a few of her color and painting tips.

Go online for color inspiration. Kee is using Pinterest (www.pinterest.com/paintedroom) to organize ideas. Tools such as Flickr and Google Images, as well as design blogs, help visualize what colors look like in homes.

Test several trim and ceiling colors. There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all white. Kee has a go-to list of white paints she finds versatile. A few of her favorites: C2 Cotton, Sherwin-Williams Alabaster and Benjamin Moore: Acadia White.

Consider painting the ceiling the same color as the walls. Using the same paint on both gives a contemporary feel.

In tiny spaces, think about a shot of bright color instead of an entire room. For condominiums and apartments, consider using blocks of color to define space. Paint interior doors and, on occasion, accent walls.

Factor in wood-floor color. Wood-floor stains have different undertones. Put paint samples and fabric swatches next to the floor, and check them in various lights.
