Nothing can give your home more instant pizzazz than color!  The right choice of color can either calm your room or liven it up with excitement and joy!  There is absolutely no such thing as bad color-only bad color combinations and personal dislikes for certain colors.  Color is like seasoning!  It adds spice to your life!

Here are a few tips on working with color:

Want to create a calm and relaxing environment?  Try selecting cool colors.  A soft blue or teal hue will certainly give your room a restful, peaceful feeling.

Unsure about which new color will work best in your room?  Be sure to test your new colors by day and night.  Artificial light can make some colors appear totally different at night.  And, incandescent bulbs tend to give ANY color scheme a yellowish glow.
