Q.  My husband and I are building our first house. In the living room, kitchen, dining room (1 big room) we would like to decorate using warm yellows, reds, greens and orange. We will have white appliances, oak cabinets and nickel light fixtures. Will gray carpeting and a grayish/tanish linoleum work?

A. Congratulations on your new home. Installing a neutral color of flooring is generally a nice option for the flexibility of future decorating. The gray could also help “ground” the room and allow a good mix of light and dark decor. For more information on flooring call Tuckey Restoration or email
