Within a space there are very few things that impact a room as powerfully as wall color. It’s the very foundation of a room. It’s sets the tone & mood. It indicates the likes of the person or family that lives with in. Color can indicate the use of the room. The power of color can make a room cozy -peaceful or subtly electrify a space.
Within the last 6 months our foyer underwent a transformation. We added wood trim details & went to work on repainting or wallpapering the spaces.
In the middle of 2021 my dear friend Kate Deshler opened a Design studio called Indigo Home & Lifestyle. She offered me a desk to work from. Joining the studio has been such joy & a most needed boost to my business. One of the biggest unexpected gifts is the ability to inspire & influence one another. the studio is painted on one wall an intense navy by Benjamin Moore called Indigo Go while the rest a muted white by Benjamin Moore called Halo. (See below)
Some when I decided to repaint my 19 foot high foyer I pulled out my fan decks and started to take a look. While I continue to fall I love with Navy- my first love is a serene blue green. After over a dozen samples I decided with my Hubby (on board – I thank God for him daily) to try something new.
Well, let’s just say during the day I liked it but at night I HATED it. So NOT me. I let it stay that way for about a week or so and then finally made a much more in line with my design aesthetic color of “Comfort Grey”. Ok now I see the irony with the paint name – LOL!
This experience taught me- trends & inspiration is good but it has to be a reflection of you. You need to interpret what works for you. If that’s an area you struggle with – hire a design professional. While it may feel like an extravagant expense it’s really not. It’s worth taking the time to get a plan together. If there is a designer & you love what they do. Reach out to them. Each designer is different & can work with different budgets. Happy Decorating & remodeling! Xoxo, Kim
