Did you know that 40% of the paint sold in the United States is to correct PREVIOUS color mistakes? Yep. It’s true. A common error people make is selecting the paint color first and then making decisions about the remainder of the room. Although I ALWAYS recommend paint color last, this isn’t always possible. For example, new homeowners often want to paint their entire house before moving in and furnishing it.
Several years ago I designed a renovated barn and the builder requested paint colors long before we were in the ‘Furniture Planning’ stage. So I had to select a whole-house color palette that would work FOR us, not AGAINST us when it came time to select the furniture fabrics. As you can see, the colors worked wonderfully with the materials we ended up using.
I worked with clients on their massive renovation of the historic Heather Mansion, now named Chez Nous. They utilized our design-only Master Plan service because they planned to shop at antique stores, auctions, and estate sales so we needed a paint palette that gave them flexibility.
Let’s ensure your next paint project doesn’t become part of that 40% statistic. Instead, let it be the transformative step toward creating your dream home.
Have a well-designed day,
