The Easiest Makeover
A new paint job is one of the simplest, most inexpensive ways to makeover your home. And spring's open-window weather is a great time to dive in. The fresh air keeps you breathing easy, and the warming temperatures will help the paint dry.
Choose a Key Color
It doesn't take many colors to energize a room; good use of one or two can do the trick.
Pick a dominant hue you can repeat in accessories. The lavendar wall here is the keynote, picked up by the "Concord Blue" plant on the night table. The framed print reinforces the color, giving both the print and wall more impact. A butter yellow wall softens the power of the bold purple.
