The Best Colors For A New Look

 Spring is officially here, and though Easter is over, the holiday is affecting other style trends. If you enjoy looking at the pretty dipped eggs, you will be pleased with the new color trends.

 

Shimmery Pastels: Shimmery, shiny high gloss paints are big right now. Silvery lavender and cool tones of blue. Think of the prettiest Easter basket, and envision those colors on your wall.

 

Bold is Beautiful: This year the theme seems to be bold and bright colors. Think primary colors, green like grass and red like tomatoes. The new twist on this trend is mixing and matching the primary colors through interior design.

 

Brown all Around: Dark brown is classic in interior design, but now the color is having its day in house paint. If you can’t commit to such a strong color all over your walls, consider painting trim or have your painting professional try large stripes.

 

Silver Goes Beyond Jewelry: Benjamin Moore debuted Silver Fox, a stylish cool tone that will really open a space. Varying shades of silver give a room chic and sleek beauty that will pair well with any interior design.

 

Lilac is Back: Many shades of purple, from deep plums to light lilac, are having a moment right now. Interior design trends show many different layers and shades of purple, often in the same room. Purple has been shown to improve moods, so feel free to indulge.

 

As always, accent walls are still appearing in interior design, but now the focus is one dark wall. We at Ozzy’s Painting look forward to helping you execute your vision.

 

How To Make Small Spaces Seem Larger With Paint Colors

We all have that one room in our homes that we don’t know what to do with, because it is too small or oddly shaped. Instead of ignoring that room, and putting off the inevitable, tackle it now with these simple painting tips.

Here are simple painting tips for brightening and lengthening your room:

- Paint two walls a much darker color. People have the misconception that darker colors will close a small space, make it stuffy, but it actually gives the illusion of space.

- Try Benjamin Moore’s Super White, if you like clean spaces and can’t commit to a color. The brightness of this shade will liven up any room, and you will never have to stress about matching decor.

- Paint your walls a deep, glossy gray and paint your crown molding a stark white or light lavender. Using a contrasting color on crown molding or the ceiling to accentuate your small space.

- Cool paint shades, with an undertone of blue or green, make the walls recede and small spaces seem larger.

- One painting technique layers glazes on top of each other, giving the wall depth.

- Use bold colors in an elaborate way, in every room, and that will give the entire house a certain flow and depth. Paint a door red and the walls blue, and make the kitchen or living room a part of that flow, by using a contrasting color.

Whatever color you decide on, hiring professionals will take this project to another level. We at Ozzy’s Painting understand spatial relations and color schemes, and will work with you to create an amazing new space.
