Tip of the Week: Add Color to Your Home!
TIP OF THE WEEK: Adding color to your home
In this business, I meet many families that are afraid of color. They look for the right shade of white, or cream, or ivory, or ecru or beige for their walls. But color adds excitement, character and projects a mood. It can be fun, warm, comforting, sensual or bold! Here are some tips for choosing color:
* Don’t start with the paint! Decorate the room and choose a color that is in the room…not the other way around.
* Paint can be matched to almost anything! So pick the bed spread, or the accent pillows, or the rug first. Then work with your local paint store to find the right color paint.
* Test the paint before painting the entire room. Buy a small sample pot, paint a board and move it around the room. Look at it throughout the day and night as the light changes in the room.
* Choose a quality paint, like Farrow and Ball! Remember the paint is going to be on your walls for a long time…make it count!
