Bring On the POP – Power of Paint

You’ve decided it’s time for a change. Maybe it happened suddenly, as in you woke up one morning to our eastern Florida sunrise and declared your house in need of some help- NOW. Or maybe it’s been a long time coming, with a wistful thought here and there of what it would be like to freshen up the space. What if we told you there is an affordable, quick solution to make your favorite room (or the whole house) feel fresher and more stylish, virtually instantly- would that interest you? Our best guess is that it would! So without further ado, behold the power of paint!

Why Paint?

It’s easy to see why paint has become the dominant decorating medium for all things vertical. It provides complete customization and quick transformation. For instance, if you have a special focal piece in a room- perhaps a lampshade or piece of upholstered furniture- finding a coordinating paint color is as simple as bringing the item or a swatch of fabric to the paint store. Today’s technology allows for custom shade matching and blending, giving you just the color you were hoping for.

Why Paint?

It’s easy to see why paint has become the dominant decorating medium for all things vertical. It provides complete customization and quick transformation. For instance, if you have a special focal piece in a room- perhaps a lampshade or piece of upholstered furniture- finding a coordinating paint color is as simple as bringing the item or a swatch of fabric to the paint store. Today’s technology allows for custom shade matching and blending, giving you just the color you were hoping for.

But what is the color you are hoping for? Choosing a paint scheme plays a big role in determining the hues you’ll use to bring your room to life.

Paint Schemes

The traditional color wheel is composed of a dozen standard colors, divided evenly between warm and cool hues. How these colors are applied in the realm of decorating often falls into one of three color schematics:

  1. Monochromatic: Shades of a single color are the focal point. The end result could be described as having a gradient effect.
  2. Analogous: Shades of two adjoining colors from the wheel are used. Often found in nature, this color scheme can be easy on the eyes. Think of the fabulous red and orange sunrises we are treated to here in Brevard and you’ll understand the beauty that analogous hues can produce.
  3. Complementary: Accomplish this strategy by choosing two colors directly across from each other on the wheel. This is a classic case of opposites attract!

To choose a strategy that achieves your design vision, think about your overall objective. Do you want an immersive, single-color experience? Or are you looking for the drama that tension between colors creates? With a little exploration and introspection, find the look you’re striving for and choose a paint scheme to accomplish it.

Experience the P.O.P!

Ready to unleash the power of paint, or P.O.P? As your neighborhood interior designer in Cocoa, I have seen firsthand the immense lift that a fresh coat of paint gives to a room. Delighted homeowners can’t believe the quick and easy transformation that a simple color change provides. You might even find that it gives you a whole new lift in mood!

Paint is also a relatively affordable option, since a color scheme can be chosen to complement your existing furnishings. So instead of making an investment in an all new design direction, you can put a fresh twist on what you already have come to know and love. It truly is a case of making one small change to breathe new life into a room!

If you’re ready for to experience the P.O.P in your life, start your color wheel turning. And if the wheel is a bit rusty or needs some momentum, give us a call today and we’d love to help you set things in motion!
