What are the season's hottest colors, and how do you properly incorporate them into your home? My season's hottest colors are a deep turquoise peacock and gray. I love turquoise peacock. Right now, I'm working on a master bedroom of a young couple who are world travelers who have been everywhere, including Morocco. In their bedroom, they have a lot of oversized wood furniture. I'm doing a finish on the wall that is an Americanized plaster version of tadelakt — a Moroccan plaster technique.

Jackie Jordan, director of Color Marketing for Sherwin-Williams, offers five tips for tackling a painting project: 1. Be sure to have the right amount of paint and supplies before beginning. Paint calculators that help gauge how much paint is needed are available online. 2. Take it one room at a time, starting with the most frequently used spaces, such as a bedroom or living room. 3. First paint the ceiling, then the walls and finally the trim. 4. Test out a new color by applying it to a small piece of foam board or poster board.

I am thinking about refreshing the paint colors in my house this fall, especially in the kitchen and in the bedroom. What kind of new color palette are you seeing right now, particularly for those rooms? While there are always new color trends emerging in interior design, when refreshing the color palette in your home, the focus should be on the way you combine colors so you can get a fresh new look without abandoning the hues that appeal to your own taste. In the kitchen, where there is generally minimal wall space and appliances are white, black or stainless-steel, adding bursts of color to the walls can make a statement without overpowering the room.

Black, according to some fashion followers, is such a staple it has become a cliche. Such a notion causes those of us who have invested large sums in a wardrobe based on black to snicker.Truth is, black as a fashion basic will never die. It is not only visually slimming, as the image consultants say, it also is easy to dress up, hides dirt (for those times one must take an extended business trip with limited luggage) and goes with anything you can think of.Still, fashion moves in cycles. (How else to sell new clothes?

It's not a particularly busy day for Jeune Jaffe. The phone rings only every four or five minutes, instead of continually. The floor of the floral designer's garage workshop is nearly covered by vases full of flowers, but there is, after all, room to walk.If their schedule for the week included two Virginia dinner parties, a fund-raiser for Middle Eastern refugees, a luncheon and three weddings, many people might consider themselves not only busy but swamped. But for Ms. Jaffe, who works seven days a week at her Bethesda business, Jeune Jaffe Flowers Ltd., the afternoon is relaxed enough that she has leisure not only to talk to a visitor, but to demonstrate some of her creative methods.

If the foods you eat are mostly brown and white, chances are your diet is not only boring but also less than healthful. That's the premise of Dr. David Heber's new book, What Color Is Your Diet? (Regan, $25). Director of nutrition at the University of California, Los Angeles' Center for Human Nutrition, Heber says the key to a healthful diet is a rainbow of colors provided by fruits and vegetables. "I believe that most of our health problems are diet-related," Heber said in a telephone interview from his Los Angeles office.

Take one spare third-floor bedroom in a Baltimore row house. Add two owners, three professions (doctor, psychologist and fiction writer) and a smattering of house guests, and you have the formula for the not-enough-room blues.Designers Robert Hale and Tom Williams of Federal Hill Interiors listened carefully to the owners' daunting list of criteria and then went into action. They gutted, installed skylights, moved closets and soon achieved a functional, easy-to-live-in space that accommodates everyone's desires.

It's not nice to call them "earth tones" any more, but look fo furnishings and accessories in a color palette straight from Mother Nature's paint box come fall, with a special emphasis on acres of green.Upholstery fabrics and other offerings at the International Home Furnishings Market in High Point, N.C., included greens ranging from sage and hunter to olive and kiwi. (There was avocado, too, but no one seemed comfortable calling it that.)After green, yellow was the next most exciting coloration at market, with tones from mustard and old gold to wheat and bright sunflower making an appearance.

Eclecticism is favored more by consumers and interior designers, including Amanda Pays. Her own homes have been diverse -- Georgian, English Country and Spanish -- and her furniture line has won over clients as disparate as Barbara Bush and Nicolas Cage. How to channel such varied tastes into the dining room? Chairs help make the room distinctive, Pays says, and they don't have to match. "You can find a chair that is separate from the table as long as it complements it in some way." Here she offers tips for finding that elusive, perfect dining chair.

After years of wishful thinking, we finally have the money and time to refurnish our master bedroom. It's an exciting prospect, but now we're frustrated by our inability to decide on a color scheme. Even choosing a headboard has proved difficult. We need something dramatic to get us past this "designer's block." Any suggestions? There are good reasons why professional interior designers have a background in art history and architecture as well as in the decorative arts. That's where a lot of our ideas come from.
