Pickle Green or Passionate Puce? How to select right color for your room!
by Pamela Cole Harris
Did yellow paint in your room seem like a wonderful, sunny choice two years ago, but now reminds you of two day old eggs? Is harvest orange seem trendy? The dusty plum seem elegant? And did that certain shade of green that seemed restful yesterday seem faintly reminiscent of moldy algae? Then it is time to find right color for your room!
Here are some hints to help you make a choice:
1.Look at home improvement magazines, decorating magazines and architectural journals. Pick 5 or 6 color schemes that you like. Take those to paint store when shopping for paint chips. Take chips home and live with them a bit before you make a decision.
2.Remember that lighting and shadows will make a color appear drastically different than color you expected. Take this into account when you pick out a paint color at store. After you have lived with paint chip for several days, bring a small can of your preferred color home and try a sample on each wall. View it at different times of day and with different lighting combinations.
3.If you don’t want to paint walls, try painting a large piece of scrap wood or drywall. You can then lean it up against wall to decide if it is right.
