With the current hustle and bustle setting of life
we are all eager to fashion our homes as restful, relaxing, serene sanctuaries. For a haven away from the cares of the world, include such essentials as comfortable furnishings and objects with sentimental value. Thoughtful color selection.Want to re-create the almost palpable relaxing mood found here? Begin by painting the walls in a "barely there" shade of gray. Next, layer in slightly darker colors along with a few fun but understated patterns. Finish off the inviting, uncluttered look with white-painted trim and sheer window treatments.Pale blue brightens up even a sunny dining room like this one, where white-painted furniture delivers a dose of freshness, even as the pale yellow ceiling offers a nice surprise.Off-white looks especially lovely when paired with warm wood tones. Here, the sliding glass door allows the not-too-white white to reflect the sun's ray throughout the day, an effect that brightens the space even more—without overwhelming. Freshen up with a little accent of live plants as the source of oxygen that lightens and softens the home. Painting and repainting needs? Call us today.
