Warm Up With Color
Because we spend our first and last waking hours at home, we could use stimulation with a daily dose of upbeat color.
More Color Tips
- Individuality is key. Items such as artwork give inspiration to a room. Think of museums you have visited. The various rooms all have wonderful color on the walls to complement the art.
- Matching color tones is very important. One way to do that is by using a paint color deck, which can be picked up at a paint or home-improvement store.
- Once a color is selected, get a quart of paint and test it on the walls. In order to get an appreciation for a true color and its impact on a room, paint an area at least 3 feet wide x 4 feet tall on several walls in the room. Watch it at various times of the day.
- Don't forget the ceiling in a room. It is really another wall. Just as color on walls can make furnishings come alive, painted ceilings can accentuate light fixtures.
