A crucial step people often miss is not utilizing paint samples on the desired surface. This is because light determines how the color will appear; color never stands alone. Whether it is natural daylight or artificial lighting, light can dramatically change the appearance of certain colors. Viewing color samples throughout the day is always the best way to find colors you will love.
When selecting a paint color for a room, draw inspiration from some of your favorite accessories – such as pillows, artwork, and rugs.To ensure a smooth color transition, unify similar color tones. To achieve color uniformity, choose a color for a room, then paint the adjacent space using tones from the same color chip either two shades lighter or darker.
A great way to add style to a space is by complementing feature walls. It does not take very much color to punch up a space. A, nook, window bay or headboard can make a great feature wall – perfect for a strong splash of color to accent your room.
