COLORS HAVE A PERSONALITY OF THEIR OWN





“Purer colors... have in themselves, independently of the objects they serve to express, a significant action on the feelings of those who look at them.”
Henri Matisse 

First you want to step back and think about the overall design you want to portray for whichever room you are painting. Paint colors can determine the overall feel of your room and influence the moods of its occupants. Then you want to consider the lighting and exposure of your room.
Painting with color combinations can be tricky if you are trying to find a stylish combination that won't be outdated in a year. Selecting colors to enhance the mood you want to create in a room can add vitality to your home or create a soothing space that makes people feel at ease. Reactions to specific colors vary with individual taste.
Look to soft grays, putty tones, atrium white or even a diluted violet for a serene and versatile palette. All neutral colors, even black and white, should make it easy to swap furniture and accessories in your space. A flexible color scheme will allow you to adopt different looks throughout the year.
