Shimmery, softer pastels stylish teamed with contemporary, metallic neutrals are popular home remodeling trends for 2004.

Painting enthusiasts should consider marrying natural shades like wheat with a glistening shade of copper, not only showing contrast but also allowing greater flexibility for coordinating furnishings and other design elements within the space.

'Neutrals and metallics allow you to inexpensively update the look of your room without having to completely remodel, ' said Debbie Zimmer, decorative painting consultant for Rohm and Haas Company's Paint Quality Institute. 'Stylishly muted pewter, chrome and stainless steel home interiors can be fashionably paired with gentler greys, offbeat whites and dramatic black to produce fashion forward results.'

However, the option to combine natural colors is still an attractive one. 'Don't lose sight of the refreshing life of the season! Ethereal blues, combined with natures most refreshing greens, work for both interior and exterior applications,' says Zimmer.

For instance, celestial blue and crisp kelly green can be effectively and easily partnered with earthy brown and snowflake white to highlight a family room peppered with natural light, helping to integrate the two spaces 'In addition to the natural exterior surroundings, the application of painted color to furnishings, wall coverings, flooring and decorative accessories creates flow and harmonization within those rooms,' said Zimmer.
