The Least Expensive Decorating Tool In My Bag

Tami_Smight_HeadshotThe Least Expensive Decorating Tool In My Bag

So what do you think is the most affordable way to add instant change to a room?  That’s right, wall color!

Paint color, more than any other design element will transform your room.

 

 

 

Sunny_roomWhen it comes to selecting your paint color, location isn’t the only thing, it is everything!  I always consider the style of the home, the architecture, the spirit of the people who live in the home. These factors all characterize a home as much as the quality of light in the space.

I know how color will behave in your room based on the furnishing in it, the amount of natural light, artificial light and window coverings.

Have you ever held a paint fan deck from Behr or Dunn Edwards or Benjamin Moore?  Color selecting is a daunting task, especially when faced with a tiny chip of color.

An important factor to consider beyond light, is how you want the space to feel?  That’s right!  What is the end result you desire?  Sophisticated, sumptuous, elegant, calm, dramatic, romantic? Color creates a mood, so define the mood you want first.

Still feel a bit overwhelmed?  Tami Smight Interiors offers paint consultations in the comfort of your home, during the daytime, with large oversized paint cards.  Call today to get your design project started in the right direction.
