    Let’s say you have been in your house for about a year, maybe eighteen months and you decided to buy some new furniture, or some new bedding for a bedroom. And you’re looking to repaint the wall and change it up a little bit. We have a program at PPG called, “My Voice of Color.” You can go to myvoiceofcolor.com.

    We have interior designers that will come into your home for one hour, its seventy five dollars; you get a fifty dollar gift certificate for paint. And they are able to come into your home, see your lighting see your flooring see, your furniture, every piece that’s in the space that you want to paint, to help you choose the paint colors for that space.

    Typically in an hour they can get through one or two rooms and maybe a hallway, so that you’re able to actually make sure all the colors flow together as well.

    It’s a great program! You get to go online to choose you own designer, schedule the appointment directly with them, and like I said they come to your home and they’re able to help you pick the paint colors and update the space with your new furniture and your new bedding.

    Choosing Paint Colors for a Bedroom

    For your bedrooms there are all kinds of great colors. There are colors to avoid in a bedroom. Colors that are very energizing like oranges and yellows, you don’t want to put into a bedroom because it would be very hard for you sleep.

    So if you choose a bigger color for an accent wall in the bedroom, that you’re not facing when you’re in the bed, you can go with a little bit deeper and darker of a color. But the rest of the walls should be a tranquil almost spa-like color. For the master bedroom behind me, that sage green is a very restful color. Green is one of the best colors you can use anywhere, because it reminds you of nature and you’re very familiar with those colors. Those nice, soft greens look great!

    But, if I would change that green to a very big bright, yellow-green; which is one of our colors called, “Lichen.” It’s in my family room, family rooms are fine, because it’s meant for energy and fun but in a bedroom it would not be good.

    For little girls’ rooms they don’t always have to be pink. They can be again softer pastels, but creamer pastels you can go with a very nice like green, light blues, light yellows very nice soft colors.

    Painting the Ceiling

    We talk about the ceiling a lot. Think about it, when you look at the ceiling, what you would like to see? We see a lot of people painting babies’ rooms blue because looks like the sky. It’s just an opportunity to again engage your baby, when it’s little, with color. Again keep the colors soft!

    In a boys room we typically go to blue (for a ceiling). It doesn’t always have to be blue; again it’s just a color that they like. It can be a green, it can be blue. My son’s black and gold for the Penguins, he wants to pull in a lot of color.

    One of the recommendations they give for parents, if you’re letting your child pick the color, is when they go on those stripe cards and look at all the different colors and they’re way down here and it’s a really bright purple, or a very very bright blue, just go about two or three shades up. They’ll never know the difference, because color magnifies when you put it on the wall.

    So any color you choose, that’s down here it’s going to look way bigger and way brighter and way darker on the wall (or ceiling). So if you go up a couple they’ll be fine with those choices and you’ll like it much better too.

    Interior Lighting Can Change Paint Color’s Appearance

    Another great place for color in the house is the powder room. A lot of times we tell people if you want experiment with paint color or wall color, choose a huge color for the Powder Room. Really have fun with it! Like, why not? Paint is the least expensive way to completely transform a room.

    Every time you see those home improvement shows, where you see the before and after, it’s always the wall color which is like, “Wow!” They just might have changed it just a little bit, and it makes a big difference or they change it a lot and it makes a huge difference.

    Powder Rooms are amazing. One of the biggest colors we see in Powder Rooms right now is a medium to dark silver grey, with very pretty chrome silver fixtures it looks fantastic. You can choose reds or black, a lot of people get nervous with that color, but if you use a flat or an eggshell again in the bathroom you can do that these days, because of the technology in the paint. So powder rooms are a great place for big color.

    Another great place for color that people don’t even think about is your garage. You know we sometimes call it the, “man cave” if guys have things set up in there a refrigerator and all kinds of things for them to go to and hang out. But why does it have to be off white? Why not a color in your garage? Pull into some color every day! It can have a great effect on you.

    Choosing Accent Walls

    So, when choosing an accent wall, the best thing you can do is when you walk into a space is see which wall has the most interesting things on it. For example this wall here has the fireplace and some beautiful windows, and so that would be considered your accent wall. And that’s where you have an opportunity to throw in a new color. The room behind me would be the wall that the bed is up against. That’s the wall that you generally look at first and has the most interesting space. And that’s where you can pull in another color. Your accent wall is always the wall that has the most interesting features on it and the one that you tend to look at first when you enter the room.

    Matching Paint Color with Wood

    Whenever you’re working with a lot of cabinets or wood flooring you wanted to choose colors that pull in the warmth of the wood. So when you look behind us and you see all those beautiful wood cabinets there, the wall color should always be a warm color. Now, people, when I say warm color they always think beige, and that isn’t the case, because you can work with this blue.

    The key is to not to choose a very clean or bright color against a warm honey type of wood, because it won’t look right it’ll be too much contrast. If you go into a Masterwork Paint store, which is where we sell our PPG Paints, the two last rows on the paint displays, the four hundred and five hundred series, are all very, very warm neutral colors that look really good with wood. We also have a collection called Atmospheric and again you can look at the colors online up at voiceofcolor.com. Atmospheric are beautiful neutrals that go really well and are warm enough to go with really well with wood floors or with wood cabinets.

    Transitioning Colors

    Transitioning room to room, hallway to entryway is really a challenge for homeowners today. Especially because you have these open floor spaces now, that look out into all different areas. You should always choose one color that moves, that is consistent, throughout those areas.

    This color Coffee Kiss that’s on the wall, is carried through the hallway, is carried upstairs. But then you have an accent wall where you have one wall that’s painted a different color that pulls in some of the fabric color. So you have these accent wall areas you have areas where you see a little bit of color even if you want to choose a different wall in the room or if you want just having it in pillows or some type of furniture or artwork. Artworks a very popular way, as well, to pull in color.

    But the main thing is to have that one color kind of flow through the house so you don’t have a lot of patchwork colors. You don’t want to have this room is purple and this room is orange and his room is green. I mean some people like that, but if you see it altogether it sometimes doesn’t work.

    Those five colored chips in those color families, because they’re all based on and around the same color family and the same hue. so if you start working with Coffee Kiss and then go down to a pumper nickel, which is a darker brown, they’re going to work beautifully because they naturally falling that way on color card. When you think about your paint when you go into the store there’s light to dark , there seven colors, when you work on that card, you can be sure the colors you pick, a dark to medium to a light, are all going to work perfectly together.

    So you want to just be careful, always have one flow color, but absolutely throw in some accent walls. Think about the ceiling! The ceiling we consider the fifth wall. You never want to automatically paint the ceiling white. White is one of the first colors that people see when they walk into space. It may not be the natural choice for that room.

    In a very, very warm room, with great color on the wall and then you just choose a just a regular white to go on the ceiling? There are like three different other options! You pull the same color of the wall onto the ceiling; so you get a very nice enveloping look, which is very cozy and comfortable and there’s no big contrast. So you have this beautiful transition.

    Or you take the color that’s on the wall and you go up a couple on that actual stripe card. So the white or off-white you choose has the same color pigments that are in your wall color. So it’s not just a stark white.

    Then the third option for ceilings which I love, it’s my favorite, is pulling a really dark color on the ceiling. So you have a beautiful lighting fixture in your dining room or your bathroom, you have something beautiful at the top that you want to draw people’s attention to, paint that ceiling a flat black, or dark pumpernickel brown, or big nice clean red. Then if you have the crown molding to go around the top of it, you paint that the trim color and now you accented that ceiling beautifully.

    But make sure whatever color you pick for the ceiling is incorporated into all your furniture, your artwork, your window treatments. Make sure that you have that color repeated. We always recommend repeating a color in a space. Never just throw a color in there. Like if you have this new vase that you love, make sure you have pink somewhere else in the room and it looks really unified and pulled together.
