When selecting paint colors for your home the overall feeling should be purposefully coordinated. This includes paint colors for exterior siding, trim and front doors, wall colors, ceiling and millwork. If you feel you’re starting with a blank canvas, and have little preferences or are overwhelmed with options, I like to to begin with textiles or artwork that appeal to you such as fabrics, rugs, or tiles and derive a color scheme that provides a sense of harmony as we move from room to room. Because textiles have limited color ability and paint colors don’t, it’s best to have something of interest to inspire your color. In bedrooms this might be your bedding, in a living room it might be an upholstered chair or even a pillow. In a powder room it may be a piece of artwork. The best colors support the room, and a well designed room should never allow the eye to stop in one place. When a visitor compliments how they feel in the room is a good indicator that we’ve selected the right colors and provided interest.
