I know when I read that statement I was completely baffled. Have to take everything with a bit of skepticism then or credit it to poor editing?

I would take pictures of your basement with natural light and then go to a Benjamin Moore store where they have plenty of free booklets with pictures of various rooms with color choices. One suggestion would be a satin cream color with white trim and doors. I use this color throughout my home because I live in an older gated subdivision ( 30 years plus) with lots of older large trees surrounding the
homes. Most of the homes are very dark on the inside.. for me it fills like I am living in a tunnel .. so I use this color to brighten my home and have received many compliments.

I found a paint "sample" online of Kelly-Moore Parisian Cashmere. It is beautiful, even elegant.

I own a modest 1975 small ranch, of no particular style, with small rooms, and no particularly interesting interior architecture. What I'm wondering....can such 'elegant' paint colors be used in such a setting? I see Parisian Cashmere in an equally elegant, spacious living room... What say you?
