Heather has a been a great friend for a long time. I love to ask her any type of design question because I always like to hear her opinion. This question was about paint.
- My message on facebook: I know I am ahead of myself but I am thinking of paint colors. I want a off white color. I kind of like more yellow off whites and my mom likes more brown off whites. I want to do the entire house in the same color (except maybe the upstairs bathroom). What do you think?
- Heathers response: I did my house along those lines for the most part. I actually picked two strips that are both the color schemes you said. The beige that was yellow golds went down stairs and the browner beige tones went upstairs. I learned from all the makeover shows that if you are working with a smaller space it feels larger if you take colors from the same family and use them through out. The bathrooms were the only things I did colors like you said. And the top part of Brett's office is a pebble blue because his carpet in his office is navy and it was new. The old man tried hard and put new carpet in three rooms but I could only stand the colors in the two upstairs bedrooms.
Good tips Heather! I guess I just need to get some paint chips and look at them in the light of our new house!
