Painting Tips

• Accent walls are your friend. A splash of color on a feature wall will add depth and dimension to the space without overwhelming it. Accent walls are also your chance to play with a heavily saturated color without the risk of turning your living room into a cave.

• Determine the room’s primary use. Is it a space to curl up with a book or a place where the kids play pictionary? Select a calming color or a vibrant color to correspond with the primary use of the space.

• Don’t be afraid to look up. Painting color on a ceiling can add appeal and depth.
