Ideas for Interior Painting That Change the Look of a Room

Paint Color SelectionIt's pretty common knowledge that a fresh coat of paint can do wonders for a room - and at a minimal cost. In fact, when it comes to home improvement projects, painting probably offers the best bang for your buck. In this post, we'll go over a few fairly simple paint projects that can totally transform the look of a room.

1. Accent Wall

Instead of painting all four walls of a room the same exact color, many homeowners and interior designers are incorporating the accent wall. An accent wall is basically just one wall (usually the focal wall, or the wall the eye is first drawn to when you walk in the room) that is painted a different color than the other three walls. Some people choose to make their accent wall a slightly lighter or darker shade than the surrounding walls. Others go bold and choose something completelty different. Whichever path you decide to go, the accent wall will definitely give your room a whole new look and depth without a high cost. striped bedroom wall [Read more...]

Create a Cozy Reading Nook in your Home

When you consider the idea of a reading nook, different images may come to mind. For some, the nook may be in an out of the way corner, surrounded by floor to ceiling book shelves filled with favorite volumes. For another it maybe tucked unexpectedly under a stairway or behind a curtain on a window seat. Having a special place for reading is the ideal way to encourage younger kids to read and allow teens and adults a place to unplug. Even when designating a space as small as a reading nook, the right paint job can have a significant impact. Certain color choices can evoke feelings of calm that are ideal for anyone wanting to lose themselves in the pages of a good book. Depending on your personal style, the right hues can achieve the desired effect, whether its one of sophistication, whimsy or worldliness. In creating a reading nook, here are a few points to consider:
  • Will it accommodate just one person or more?
  • Is there ample light?
  • Will there be space to store a few books or will shelves need to be installed?
  • What will the seating area consist of? …a plump chair, cheery bean bag or overstuffed window seat cushion surrounded by throw pillows?
