Blue is America’s #1 Go-To color.  I recently painted Hirschfields #0627 “Into the Stratosphere” on the walls of a home office for drama.  It created the atmosphere the homeowner was looking for.  She was a journalist and it put her in the right frame of mind.  In the trade magazines I’m seeing shades of Black on the walls.  Hard to believe we’re going from the cool tones of gray to rich, dramatic paint colors.  Even in guest baths, I’m seeing the cabinet base painted in a bright green.  Being the color girl that I am, I am loving these bold, bright colors.

Many people shy away from color because they are unsure of the proper color.  Hiring a designer to help you with color is so worth every penny.  You get it right the first time!

I actually had a homeowner tell me that she had her husband repaint the living room THREE times before she finally called me for a paint consult.  It’s tricky to look at the tiny swatches in the store and then bring them home to see how they’ll look in your home lighting.  As I visionary and lover of color, it’s one of my specialties. Spend the money to get a professional to help you.  #paintcolors #painttrends
