pinterest wordpressPaint is a big part of a room design. What is the mood you wish to create? Perhaps a spa-like master bedroom and bathroom? That would suggest the tranquil colors of blue, turquoise and aqua with touches of a rich chocolate brown. Recreate the warmth of a Tuscan villa with the colors of terra cotta, deep blue and green. Whatever you want the mood of your room to be, start with the paint colors. One foolproof method to coordinate colors is to pick up the paint color brochures available at your local home improvement center. The color experts for the paint companies put a lot of time and effort into coming up with color combinations that are dynamite together.

 So get in there and study the color combinations and schemes in their pamphlets! And tell your finicky BFF that Linda said to go ahead and copy those colors if you love them! I personally do not use the online paint sites very often because I know that different computer monitors display colors differently on their screens. That is a potential problem.

 I have one final thought on paint. No one alive can ever claim that they have loved every can of paint they have purchased! We’ve all cringed and made faces at seeing that “perfect” color on the paint chips become a whole different animal as it gets slapped on our walls! The sample paint jars are the answer. It is just enough paint to put on a small wall area and be sure you truly love it. What a great idea – I am glad the paint companies do this.
