How to select paint colors, see these photos.


Headed to your local paint store and can't decide what color? To select a wall paint you'll love for years, start with an inspiration piece, such as a pillow or accessory.

If your walls are a subtle tone, perhaps a softer version of your fabrics, you can add punches of color. See how the soft yellow chair, lamp shade, and fresh yellow flowers accomplish this in the above photo. It's ALWAYS best to select your fabrics first, then wall paint, since there are millions of paints to choose from.


Soft blue tones for this bedroom
The bed sham fabric was the inspiration for this designer room. 
The client loved decorating in the soothing "spa" blue color.  

Ask yourself this - what color makes me happy? For accent items, fresh "spa tones" (soft blue/green), yellow, caramel or paprika are all very popular. One thing for sure, a room with a pop of color can bring in sunshine and cheer!
Is there a color you'd like to add to your home? If you're in Greensboro or the surrounding area, we can provide on site tips for selecting paints! See our web site for hundereds of Before/After paint color ideas.
