Classic Color Combinations When Painting Your Rooms

Looking for a project to improve the look and feel of one of your rooms? Look no further than the color on your walls.

Classic Color Combinations When Painting Your RoomsOne of the easiest ways to change a rooms look and feel is also one of easiest to do. Choose a paint color for your walls. Add a few new accessories that make the color pop, and you’ll fall in love with your home all over again.

Sounds easy enough. But have you ever looked at the number of color options available to you? Where do you start? What do you choose?

As a professional painter, my job is more than handling a roller and a brush. One of the things I enjoy most is helping a homeowner select the right color for the room … then seeing the final results and enjoying the reactions.

For some people, they change paint on the walls almost as frequently as they do the wardrobe in their closets. For others, painting is a big job and not one they want to repeat for a long, long time. For those people, I always recommend sticking with classic color combinations that will truly stand the test of time.

Black and White

What can be more sophisticated that the classic look of black and white? Keep the walls a simple yet elegant shade of white. Add furniture in shades of white. Then let the black come in to play with curtains, flooring and accessories. You can even change out “pops” of color – such as red pillows – for a very quick change according to seasons or even moods.

Red and Gold

Have you ever visited a true Renaissance or Victorian home that has kept with the time period? You’ll find red and gold throughout. Red has always been a favorite for rooms like the dining room where guests gather and relax for hours at a time. In the past, red could evoke the feeling of warmth – something necessary when central heating didn’t exist. But the look has held and carried on to today.

Robins Egg Blue, Yellow and Cream

Think French countryside. You’ll find these colors if you visit historic sites throughout France, which dates back to the times of Louis XI and Louis XIV. You’ll even find these colors as a staple in many top brands today – Tiffany’s and Martha Stewart have always graced these colors over the years. It’s a classic look that will bring peace and tranquility to your bedrooms.

Green and Yellow

What could be better than bringing the outdoors in to your home? That’s why greens and yellows continue to work together and will always provide a classic look. Try yellow walls and accents in green … a green plant, green furniture, or green draperies are the perfect complement. And if nature tells us these colors work well together, who are we to argue? Use them and feel a sense of harmony whenever you enter your room.

Tips for Choosing Exterior Paint Colors

The exterior color of your home is just as important as the interior. You want to choose a color scheme that reflects your home’s style and your individual tastes. While choosing a color palette for the exterior of your house can be a little intimidating, the following tips can help you to choose the prefect exterior paint color that will complement your home.

Tips for Choosing Exterior Paint ColorsBe a little daring. Many people will tell you that you should paint the exterior a color that does not clash with the surrounding neighboring houses. That advice is not for those who want their homes to make an exciting statement. By making the bold move with contemporary colors, you can have fun. Of course, being daring applies to those who are staying in their home for a while and not selling it.

What Your Paint Color Choice Says About You

Don’t overdo it. While little pops of color on places such as the door can be creative and modern, be sure not to overdo splashes of random color that can be distracting. Opt for a base shade, a color for the trim, and a door accent color.

Tour the neighborhood. To get ideas for color palettes, walk around the neighborhood and take note of architectural styles and colors that strike your eye.

Consider the landscaping and climate. Natural earth tones will look best on homes surrounded by many trees and shrubs, while bright colors look best on Sun Belt houses. The paint color that you choose should look great in the green and colorful spring as well as the snowy winter.

Look at samples outside in different lighting. This will help you to see what the paint color will look like in the bright sunshine as well as in the shade.

Color sets the mood and gives your home personality and style. Carefully choosing the right color of your home’s exterior paint will give it a charming look for years to come.
