Happy May 1st! It’s Monday, and that means it’s time for another Tip of the Week.
Sometimes our tips elaborate on common sense design tips most of us already know. But other times, our tips help to dispel common design mistakes.
One of those is paint color. Many people want to pick their paint color first. Believe it or not, you should actually pick your paint color LAST!
Dawn explains, “It’s a good idea to have a general color scheme, but make life easier for yourself!! Figure out the furniture and/or area rugs and art first. Then you can select your paint colors from the colors you see in your fabrics, art work, and area rugs. It’s harder to match fabrics, a favorite piece of art or an area rug with existing paint colors.”
Here’s one of Dawn’s projects, brought to life by Steinhafels photographer Sarah Utech. Note how the pain color pulls everything together!
Our designers are hard at work on many more quick and easy design tips for you. Check in next Monday for another #DSTipOfTheWeek.
