If a floor isn’t pretty, just paint it! A solid color can lighten up the space & pull the room together, almost like pulling up the bedcovers on a bed creates an envelope or cocoon effect. A pattern painted on a floor can bring an added layer of design as well as create a cohesive three-dimensional texture transforming a room from whatever to wow.
Paint a room a dark color and your art will bounce right off the walls. If you don’t have “great” art, what you have will look better than it is. Dark colors in a small space can actually make it look bigger because it makes the space boundaries blurred. When choosing tonal palettes to live with look to your wardrobe to help you select preferred color schemes. Do you like rich saturated, intensely pigmented jewel tones or light, lucid, icy and watery pastels?
A painted ceiling is a great way to dip your toes into unchartered paint territory. Find the least predominant color in an existing pattern and use it for the ceiling color and it becomes your guarantee color for the rest of accent pops to a room. A super high gloss finish makes rooms seem taller because of the reflectiveness. A pretty rosy pale barely there just hint of pink can add a year round soft skin enhancing glow and who said no thanks to that ever? Lighter walls, darker ceilings put an unexpected but modern pin on a space. Even just painting the doors can open an opportunity for a statement making room.
But the best part of all? Anyone can use a paintbrush and end up with an artistically kissed space that becomes the canvas to their masterpiece.
