The economy is struggling, political battles are in full swing, our environment is being polluted. No doubt there are plenty of things to feel less than positive about. As we try to conserve discretionary income, we are tending to stay at home more. This is the time to make your home environment an upbeat, tranquil one.
But you say, ” I don’t have a lot of money to redecorate/remodel.”. As many of you have heard before, painting is one of the least expensive, highest impact things you can do to immediately change the look and feel of your home. The most recent Dunn-Edwards newsletter had some interesting information to share about the 2009 Color Forecast. Below are some excerpts:
Color choices will either be soft and pale, very dark and nocturnal, or full of natural chroma. The centrifuge for this change is the individual’s drive toward personal expression–that innate need to emote qualities and characteristics that make us uniquely us.
One influence is increasing globalization….Another powerful influence is the global momentum behind sustainability….
Dunn Edwards goes on to classify and give fun marketing names to eleven color schemes.
If you are ready to try some new paint color in your home, don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Go outside your color comfort zone and see what happens.
