Do you have a room that just doesn't "feel right" but can't figure out why? Have you ever bought the "perfect" paint color, only to be disappointed at how it actually looks on your wall?
MAKING EVERYDAY MORE COLORFUL
Color is the single most important visible element of any design. It's no wonder that people agonize over it. Choosing the right color can be a daunting task; choosing the wrong one can prove to be frustrating. Good or bad, color is one of the easiest ways to change a space immediately. Selecting the correct colors can be difficult for most people. Natural lighting and artificial lighting, furnishings, art, flooring and many other elements can affect the way a color looks in a space.
The color you love can look one way in one space, but completely different (and awful) in another. It can raise or lower ceilings and color can make a room feel larger or smaller. Color intensity and color value can play a big role in the selection of correct colors, too. Trends and traditions are important to be aware of, but can’t be the only driving force in the selection of a proper color for a particular space. The selection of color is important to coordinate with existing elements or adjacent areas.
Color promotes emotional responses and has a profound effect on the way a person lives, thinks and feels. It has a biological and psychological influence on mood and more. For example, it is known that people feel calmer and more focused in softer blue and green rooms. Soft yellows and oranges are cheerful and comforting. Brown can relieve irritability and fatigue. Many other colors can have subconscious affects too. Also, some people have adversities to colors from their past and we help determine that in our initial consultation. We want our clients to feel good and enjoy their surroundings.
We work with most major paint lines, such as Benjamin Moore, Sherwin-Williams, Dunn Edwards or with our exclusive line Rocky Rochon Paint. Along with using the paint decks, we have larger professional swatches that help in selecting the proper colors for your home or place of business. Also, we can order large 8 x 11 paper samples from most major paint vendors if needed.
