Let's Paint


Painting the interior of your home is an excellent way to bring new life to your rooms and get your home up to date. Now is the perfect time to give your home your own special touch and taste.

With so many colors to choose from, you can create the perfect color palette for your decorating style. Painting is by far the most dramatic way to decorate and change the look and feel of your home both on the inside and outside. Choose a color scheme that appeals to you and will create the look and feel you desire. Create a warm environment in which your family and friends will be comfortable. Perhaps these thre
professional painter geneseoe simple color theories will help you:

  • Monochromatic color schemes are based on one hue, which varies in value (lightness and darkness) and saturation (the amount of color). An example of this is a pale blue with a pure blue and dark blue.
  • Analogous color schemes combine similar colors. An example of this is red, orange, and yellow. When trying to pair different colors in the same living area, remember that any two colors side-by-side on the color wheel will work together.
  • Complementary color schemes are based on opposing colors. This arrangement offers more contrast and can introduce both warm and cool colors into the area. An example would be a warm yellow wall with deep blue trim. These colors are warm and cool, respectively, but work beautifully to create contrast, depth, and a welcoming environment.

If you are having a hard time deciding which colors would look best for your home, may I recommend the great folks at Chicago Street Decorating Center. You can find them in My Favorites.
