Interior Decorating Ideas : How to Choose a Wall Color


Hey, I’m Ann Myrick, and today, I’m going
to show you how to choose a wall color. Many things to think about. First you want to think
about, where, what room you’re going to be working with? and what the activity is in
the room, and what I mean by that is, you don’t want to put a real bright, bold color,
in a bedroom, because a lot of times, the color will kind of keep you kind of energized,
and not be a calming color, so it really depends on what room we’re going to painting, or what
room we’re going to be changing, so you want to think about what the room is, what the
activity is, in that room. You want to think about the light. Do you have a lot of light
in that room? Do you not have a lot of light? If you have rooms that don’t have a lot of
light, then you want to be careful about really dark color. Is there already furniture items
in that room, that you need to work with, as far as the colors within that color scheme,
that you need to work with? All your major paint companies have great paint fans, that
you can go and just work with, and they designate the paint, the textures you can use on those
paints, and it’s great information, to just sit down and look at your paint colors. Another
thing that I will always tell a client, is whatever paints, there are many paint companies
that you can go and get individual, big individual swatches, and a lot of times, I will take
these big swatches, or I will take a swatch and put three or four together, and make a
really big swatch, and put it in that room, that I’m going to paint, and see what it does,
within a twenty four or a forty eight hour period, because a lot of times your paint
will change, and it will be a color that you really don’t like, and so what I do many times,
is I put a big swatch on the wall, and I will look at it, morning, noon, and night. I’ll
just tape it right on the wall, and look at it morning, noon, and night, and see if it’s
the color I really like. Sometimes I’ll put, if it’s like a green that I want to work with,
I’ll put five or six different greens that I really like, and then I’ll slowly pull the
ones down I don’t like, and then I’ll end up with the one I love. I’m Ann Myrick, and
that’s how you pick out a paint color.
