Selecting the perfect color can be difficult. Using a color wheel is a good idea when trying to come up with a color scheme, or colors with confidence. When using a color wheel remember opposites attract, each one of these opposite colors complement each other. When using complementary colors make sure one color is more subtle than the other. Another way to use the color wheel is to use colors next to each other. These are related colors which create a less contrasting effect. Using the color wheel you can also choose a monochromatic scheme. This is created by taking any one of the 12 color hues on the wheel and repeating it in various shades, tints and tones. Using the color palates base on one basic color gives you the monochromatic effect. Choosing this style can make the process of coming up with a good color scheme in your home a little easier by having one general color in mind. This style helps to create an elegant look for your home because all the colors flow so smoothly together. Incorporating colors into the home can be over whelming for some people. A good way to see what colors work well together is to look at wrapping paper and gift bags. In the gift wrap isle you will see unusual color combinations that you may be able to bring into your home. Your color scheme can also be inspired by simply pulling colors from the furnishing in the room. No matter how you decide on a color scheme donít be afraid to take a chance. Remember paint is very forgiving it can always be changed if you are unhappy with the results.

You just moved into a new home or you are looking to make gradual updates to your home¨ó a good place to start is the master bedroom. But what kind of feel do you want in your bedroom? The color that you decide to paint your bedrooms wall(s) will completely determine the feel that the room will have. Letís take a look at what/how certain colors create the mood and feeling in a room. Blue & Green: Are you looking to create an oasis where you can escape? A place where you feel calm and relaxed? Cool colors are ideal for creating this feel. These are the best colors to choose for a sanctuary where you can rewind after a long day. But make sure you are choosing soft hues in blue and green, as bright and dark hues will add a completely different feel to your room. A dark blue such as navy is a nice color to choose if you are looking for a cozier, modern feel. White, Gray & Beige: Neutral colors are a good option for wall paint if you have large accent furniture that you want to be the focal point of your room. Bright white is a great way to add a contemporary and luxurious feel to the room. Gray and beige tones can add a contemporary feel or a modern feel to your room depending on which is more your style as well as the style of your furniture. Red, Pink and Purple: These warmer toned colors will not give you the opposite feeling of an oasisó a feeling of excitement and creativity. Brighter tones are best for childrenísí bedrooms, where, darker, richer hues of these colors can create a feeling of coziness and warmth. If you do choose a warmer hued color, especially a dark color, itís a good idea to consider painting just an accent wall. This way the room does not feel and look smaller than it actually is. You can always consider painting an accent wall with any of the colors discussed above. This gives you the pop of color (or neutral tone) that youíre looking for without overpowering your room. Your furniture can then play off of that color and pull it all together. Be sure to understand the type of feel that you are looking to create in your master bedroom before choosing a coloró it will make choosing a color easier. Visit your a local home store to pick out samples and test them on your walls. You wonít truly know if you like a color unless you test them out. You may love a color on the swatch but you may find that you dislike how it looks on your wall or with your furniture. Once you find a color, start painting away. Good luck!
