Express Yourself – The Choice is Yours
You have an interior space that you have been planning to paint. You study design blogs, websites and magazines and the ideas are plentiful, but you still have not pinned down the right color. I challenge you to toss out the objections that might be holding you back and approach your project as one of self- expression. Beyond the constant elements in a space like flooring and furniture that must be considered, painting can be done for a relatively small investment and can drastically change a room. Use color visualization tools like Diamond Vogel’s Envision or paint out a sample of the color using Diamond Vogel’s Color Sampler to help you visualize your color pick. Approach your color decision like selecting a piece of wardrobe, select color expressing your own style and personality. The design rules have changed, life is neutral enough, why not express yourself and add some color to your world!
Metals have grown in importance, especially the warm tones of copper and gold. Metals will appear as accents on wood or brushed over paint finishes. Another design trend is the preservation of heritage. Classic design styles can hint of a modern update, but are shaped by the past. Surfaces are tactile and textural with shapes and textures that are suspended or have an underlying aesthetic. Patinas formed by the harsh reality of nature are gritty, and show resolve and toughness through dark, grainy woods, wrought iron and unfinished raw finishes. Romantic styles continue to emerge. These romantic designs are fanciful as luxury finishes return with the improved economy and we indulge in the finer side of design.
