Need help selecting a color?
Over the years I have found that for many home owners, the process of selecting colors can be very stressful. This is understandable when you consider that color can set the mood of a room. Color can make a smaller room feel bigger, it can also give a larger room a warm homey feeling. Research has found that color can bring out emotions and can stimulate us in many positive ways such as creative thinking and problem solving. No wonder many find this process intimidating! Here’s an suggestion I found that on several occasions has been very helpful. Hopefully it can help you reduce your choices from literally millions to a select few.
What colors dominate?
Go to your closet notice what color dominates your wardrobe.
Visit a local paint store, Sherwin Williams has a beautiful color display in every store.
Notice the colors in a favorite family heirloom, artwork or piece of furniture.
Try this, bring a favorite area rug into natural light and choose the first and the last color you notice.
After you have selected a favorite color, think about the feeling you would like that room to bring out in those who enter it. Bringing in neutrals such as khaki’s and milk whites with any color will work beautifully. Mixing light and dark colors can give you a very dramatic effect. For example chocolate browns and pale pinks can bring a romantic feeling to master bedroom.
The Final Step in making your pick
Finally, after you choose your colors, you can take advantage of the many resources that are available to you.
