DESIGN VITAMIN #1
Okay, we will start out simple today since I have a jam-packed full schedule. Since it is pouring down rain and the sky is gray--I will address choosing Paint Colors today. Never pick a paint color on a rainy day! Whenever I choose paint colors for a client---its always on a full sunny day. Never on a gray overcast day. Make sure you look at the color from all angles of the room. Please people--its just paint! Do not be soooo afraid of it! Start in a small room. Take a t-shirt (or an item of clothing that you have loved forever because of its color)to the paint store and have it duplicated into a gallon of paint. People are always asking me for my favorite "blue" during this crazy Chocolate Brown and Blue faze. Hands down its Topsail SW6217 by Sherwin-Williams. I first used this delicious color in a model home--at the beginning of the Blue craze. This color lies in between aqua and gray---and it is very calming. To get the most out of an exquisite blue room--you need a serious hit of black! High gloss doors--lacquered furniture! The black theory will be hit upon in your next vitamin!
