Admit it! You are tired of decorating with the same boring beige white colors. Color can be fun, exciting, sexy, calming and peaceful!

When you are planning to decorate your home, the colors of your rooms should be one of your first considerations!

Naturally, you want to choose colors that you instinctively like, as well as colors that create the right type of mood for both you and your guests. Because wall color impacts our emotions and can create a mood in a space more than the furnishings in it.

Let’s start with some of the more common colors palettes…

Fan_deck_TSIBlue is a calming, relaxing color. The color is good for bedrooms but can destroy the mood in a dining room as it serves as an appetite represent.

Red on the other hand, is an appetite and conversation stimulant. Red is a fiery color that at times represents both hatred and passion.

Green has been representative of life and birth, but on the flip side, it has been known for jealousy and inexperience.

Yellow is also a powerful color. Since yellow is the color of sunshine, it has a happy, uplifting aura.  Be careful when selecting yellow shades, they can get very bright in the daylight!

Orange is a mixture of red and yellow, so it has all the warmth and comfort of those colors. Some oranges – such as the color of pumpkins and fall leaves – is a stimulant and good for use in the dining room.

Purple has always been a special color, representing royalty and spirituality. Purple is known for stimulating creativity in small doses, but large amounts of purple can cause depression and moodiness.

Wall color also adds your personality to the room, giving visitors an instant impression about you. What do your walls say about you?

With 40% of paint purchases being made as the result of an original color mismatch, there is clearly a need for guidance! So don’t go it alone, bring in a professional!

We will hold your hand during the terrifying color selection process to ensure fabulous color combinations that reflect your personality and design style.
