Is Pink a Good Color to Paint Room?
Pink is a color that works extraordinarily well in living rooms, bathroom and entry ways. Shades of pink can provide a versatile color palette, for example a soft tone of pink can balance a white and black color scheme and give artwork framed in black a touch of elegance. If you have furnishings that are inspired by the art-deco design of the 1920 & 1930’s, you can also mix pink with white and gold frames and decorative end tables. If you are interested in a more contemporary look that centers on furniture and accessories in shades of green, choose a shade of pink that that has blush undertones. Pink walls will bring out pairings in paintings, fixtures and accessories that are bright and vibrant. Subtle pinks with coral and beige undertones work well in guest bedrooms with bold accessories to add depth and dimension to the room.
Is Yellow a Good Interior Painting Color?
Yellow works perfectly in entryways, especially when paired with a white molding to add a feeling of warmth and elegance when entering the home. A popular decorating trend this season is to match yellow walls with geometric patterns in stenciled furnishings and accessories such as throw pillows and rugs for a modern look. For a room filled with black and white furniture, yellow walls will add a dramatic feel to the room. Choose softer yellow tones when pairing whitewashed furnishings and shades of grey accents for a room that is inspired by the French county to give the space a rustic feel that looks both clean and bright. Yellow with a citrus chartreuse base will add warmth and depth and works well in breakfast areas when mixed with neutrals. Chartreuse also works well with formal dining rooms that have shades of plum and burgundy.
Is Green a Good Color to Paint Your Room?
If you have a passion for neutral furnishing and accessories, you might want to consider painting your walls green. Tones of green including olive and avocado work wonderfully in bedrooms as they help to promote a feeling of peacefulness and relaxation. Green is a color that is extremely versatile and can enhance tones of pink and blue all the way to shades of orange and yellow both of which can be put to great use in bedding, upholstered furniture and accessories such as pillows and other soft furnishings. Whether you have a home that is inspired by French county, art deco, modern or traditional, there is a shade of green that can be paired perfectly in your home. A popular shade in 2016 is army green that can be layered with neutral colored accessories and furnishings.
