If you walk the paint aisles at
any home center, you'll see that there are more paint swatches
than ever. Thousands of paint choices line the walls and each
one will instill comfort or fear in each of us. White has always
been referred to as the “can't-make-a-mistake” colour. Of
course, white or 'neutral' palette colours are best for anyone
looking at selling a home. Most new home buyers will ultimately
re-paint rooms to their own taste, but fresh white or neutrals
will convey a clean, fresh feel to any home.
If it is your home and plan on
decorating to your taste, give colour a try! Exactly what is the
fear that surrounds the decision of going with colour? Most
people say they're afraid that they won't like a strong colour
once it's on the walls. But that fear is irrational, because
paint, unlike a black sofa covered in green parrots, can be
changed inexpensively. It's much harder to return a sofa and
it's very expensive to recover it.
my own home, our living room is bathed in a medium sage colour
with a bold olive border. And you know what … the colour is very
inviting and it makes you feel like curling up for a hot cup of
tea in front of the fireplace.
