Here are my Paint Color Tips:
Set The Atmosphere:
- Create an ambiance with color – Cool colors like grays, blues, and greens are soothing for relaxation. For example, in a bedroom or bathroom. Warm colors like yellows, beiges, and oranges are more energetic. For example, in an entertainment area or athletic space.
- Design an accent wall – A bold pop of an accent color on one wall will create a vibrant focal point in a room. Consider the fireplace wall, a nook, or a bed wall.
- Try colors already in the room – There are several routes you can take. If your furnishings are light, try a darker color on the walls and vice versa. Pick up a less prominent color, for example, from a patterned fabric or rug. Try matching an accessory or a color from artwork in the space that inspires you.
Low VOC Paints:
- Look at paint formulations – Consider paints that have low or no Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) for a healthier indoor air environment. These paints have less odor and off gassing.
