Flower Interior Paint Colors and Schemes
In our last article, we covered the use of sea colors, however, let’s go inland for a while. The rules for interior house painting have changed a lot. It used to be that yellow was exiled to the kitchen. However, it looks wonderful in the dining room as well as the living room. And it is just one of the colors that you can use that are based on colors present in nature, particularly where flowers are concerned. How about the purple red of a bleeding heart fuchsia, or the rich peach color of a teacup rose?
Vibrant colors can be used throughout the home, and there are a lot of painting tricks you can do where interior house painting is concerned. Want that old time feel of wallpaper without the hassle? Then your house painter can tape sections and paint them white with a vibrant color between. Another trick is to take leaves or blossoms and imprint them in paint and then lightly touch them to the walls. There is sponging too, of course, which gives your paint a nice textured look. However, these are just some of the painting tricks you can use.
Interior House Paint Color Tricks
According to THISOLDHOUSE.COM: “Consider the ceiling the fifth wall of a room. Though sticking to “ceiling white” generally makes a space feel airy, a similar effect can be achieved by painting the ceiling a lighter shade of the wall color. Just take the paint sample card that has your wall color as the middle choice, then go one or two choices lighter for the ceiling color. The result will be a room that appears larger, because the contrast between wall color and ceiling color has been softened. In a small room, such as a bathroom, the ceiling can even be painted the same color as the walls to make it look bigger. Of course, sometimes lowering the ceiling visually creates a welcome feeling of enclosure. In his own 19th-century brownstone, Ken Charbonneau painted the dining room ceiling Pompeiian Red. “People love to ask if the red paint doesn’t bring the ceiling down too much. But you’re sitting the whole time you’re in a dining room, and you want to create a warm, cozy, intimate feeling, so why not?” Of course, his ceilings are 11 feet high. In a house that has ceilings just 8 or 9 feet high, painting a bedroom ceiling a pale robin’s egg blue, for instance, would be a way to create a similar, soothing effect.” [READ SOURCE ARTICLE]
