There’s nothing like a fresh coat of paint with a bold new color to liven up a room, including a kitchen, bathroom, living room, closet or family room. I enjoy helping clients decide on what paint colors to use for their homes. The days of boring are over in the wake of all the splendid clor choices by paint makers such as Sherein Williams, Benjamin Moore, Behr, Glidden, Martha Stewart, and Ralph Lauren, among several others.
This past weekend, we started a personal paint project in our home and used Behr’s online Project Center. It was so easy and fun to use. We took photos of the rooms and uploaded them into the project center and presto, we sampled paint colors virtually on the walls. If you haven’t tried one of these paint simulators, you must go to Behr.com and try it on for size if you are considering painting a room in your home.
I was on the internet, looking for inspiration on other style ideas and came across Canadian House and Home’s Summer Paint Colours sponsored by Benjamin Moore – Canada. I must say that I was impressed by the style gallery. The color choices were unique and unconventional, but lovely nonetheless.
After further exploring the House and Home site, I ended up on the Benjamin Moore site and came across their lovely design magazine: Nuance. Check it out, if you are not familar with it. The Nuance magazine does a brilliant job of really showing you how to ideas and commentary from several great designers. You can view the digital version of the magazine online. It will be a guilty pleasure, I promise you will not be disappointed.
Spice up your home with color and use one of the online paint simulators to help you along the way. A little color does wonder for a room and your state of mind. Try it.. You will definitely breathe life into a room if you do.
