Why you'll never choose colors without a consultant ever again!

Why you'll never choose colors without a consultant ever again!

I was talking to a fellow contractor friend of mine not too long ago and they told me, "man, our clients could have really used your services". He told me how the customer bought $800 worth of a single paint color and his team got the entire first coat of the project complete (around $2,000 in labor) when the client came in and burst into tears because she hated the color.

There is your reason. Need I say more?

With the trees now bare this light forest-sage green brings the foliage back into your home. It echoes the pine of the Christmas tree and would be great in a kitchen, family room or bathroom.

Golden hues are the epitome of elegance. Golden garland and warm lights feed into this color. Use this as the backdrop to your fireplace and hearth or in the entire living room. A home office would also take to this color well with mahogany built-ins.

Here is your neutral color used in transition spaces. Large open rooms and hallways, rooms that are connected to other rooms need a palette cleanser. As we move into 2016 you'll see the return of the off-white as neutral. 

Ice Milk CSP-1025

Lastly, our statement piece. The only color that says, "yes, I am brooding winter, what about it?" It's dramatic and wonderful. Paint this color in a formal dining room and use your holiday decorations of warm white lights, silver and gold and spruce to make it charming and cozy. An off-white table setting will bring back your neutral into the room taking off the edge.

How to Pick Colors for Your Home

You've been there, I've been there, staring at that wall of color trying to figure out where to begin and all of these colors have simply left you in the dark...(get it? It's because their silhouettes in the stock picture are dark...).  In all seriousness, it's hard, you don't know if it's going to all flow together in real life the same way it flows in together in your mind (not to mention the spouse isn't helping at all).  Trust me, I've had that same argument with my wife and picking colors is what I do for a living.  That's why color consultations are so important when deciding to paint your home.
