Fresh neutrals make a lasting impression

Monday May 01st, 2017


A new coat of paint can work wonders to update the look and feel of your home. Perennially stylish neutrals offer an abundance of choice to rejuvenate your home with these tips in mind.

Synchronize. To pull your room together, select a neutral shade from a work of art, a decorative accessory, or furnishings.

Tone it down. If tempted to paint your den a sunny yellow for example, consider an unobtrusive tone appropriate for reading or watching television.

Connect adjacent rooms. Two shades lighter or darker from the same colour chip or a complementary hue provides a natural transition from room to room.

Start small. A paint sample or an oversized paint chip helps you consider how the colour looks in your room, and under various lighting conditions, before you commit.
