Comfort Grey Paint – Remodeling a house can be tough and rewarding work. There are so many ideas to try and, sadly, so many mistakes to be made. But, just so you don’t suffer in at least one aspect, here’s how you can get the paint job you desire.
Think of paint jobs as artists would with a canvas. Take care to use only quality paint and paint what you feel is beautiful. Children’s rooms which are always so lively and creative can be subjected to paint techniques that stimulate curiosity and inspire them to learn how it’s done. Living rooms which should be inviting and reflect elegance can benefit from warm colors or cool hues. Bedrooms, meanwhile, showcase the homeowner’s personal tastes and so can sport bolder colors or personalized artwork.
Red and grey (bedroom)
Grey walls and red décor or red walls and grey décor. Whichever way you go about it, red and grey are a perfect match because they’re extremes. Yet, unlike black and white which sometimes tend to border on drab, this combination is difficult to get bored with.
Idea 1: The trick to setting a balance is to use what appeals to you and find colors to match it. If you love grey walls, add a spark of color with a bright red bed. Let that be the focal point while décor is chosen in sober tones.
Idea 2: For more punch, have the wall behind the bed painted completely red with carefully selected art pieces in white. The rest of the walls will be a very light grey. Beige, black and dark brown can be accents in furniture, bedding, rugs etc.
Orange and white (dining room)
Dinnertime is a time for chat, catching up on the day’s events and enjoying good food. An orange and white color scheme sets the mood especially for contemporary interiors. Accents and lighting can add texture.
Idea 1: Apricot orange walls with white trim complemented with light orange chairs or white if you don’t want too much orange is perfect for a family dining room. It’s a mood enhancer and kids will love it. Hang family photos and art pieces to make it look lived-in and have a chandelier right above the dining table for a chic touch.
Idea 2: For a beach-inspired look, stick with the apricot/orange walls but use orange and white striped dining chairs. Blue and green accents on pendant lights, table lamps and cabinets with white for curtains and rugs, if any, will create a seaside look.
Cool blue (living room)
Beige as a dominant color is out so turn to colors like cool blues which exude airiness and comfort. The color is also very easy to complement with furniture and decorative elements. All-blue rooms with a few complementing colors like a white rug, beige end tables and cabinets, darker blue upholstered furniture, and display cases will create a chic, comfy space. For even more impact, match the color of the tables and cabinets to those of beams in the ceiling if there are any.
Paint jobs are far from dull, messy tasks; they give birth to imagination and taste. They’re the canvas that determines what furniture and décor should be used. If anything, they should be viewed with excitement as they give you a chance to reflect your personal choice and mood.
