First, you need to take into account everything that will be</p><p>staying in the room, including flooring,window treatments, fabric,wallcoverings, countertops and brick or</p><p>stone accents. This will help you to consider what colors are already part of the overall room scheme.</p><p>Note the architecture of your space. What does your room say on its own? Is it modern,classic, colonial?</p><p>Do you want to enhance the feeling of the space or create an entirely new feeling?</p><p>Note the open transitions that exist into other rooms. Does this room open to other rooms or hallways?</p><p>Color can change from room to room,but be aware how adjacent rooms may complement or clash.</p><p>Establish a transition color scheme so all the rooms and spaces move nicely.</p><p>What is your inspiration for this space?How will the room be used? Consider the functionality of the room when starting to select color.</p><p>Will there be a lot of reading done in this space? Will it be used for family congregating or more </p><p>formal entertainment? </p><p>Then, more importantly, ask yourself How do I want to feel in this room?What mood do I want </p><p>to create? This is an important question that underlies what defining your home and making it youis </p><p>all about.</p><p>Arm yourself with ideas. Gather your favorite pictures,magazine clippings that treasured vase with the</p><p>rose cast.

Rooms with northern exposures</p><p>pull in cool light while rooms with southern</p><p>exposures have more of a tendency to drain a</p><p>colors vibrancy.</p><p>Take into account the artificial lighting used in</p><p>the room. Incandescent bulbs tend to make col-</p><p>ors appear more warm,while halogen light does</p><p>the opposite. Lampshades also make a difference.</p><p>A white paper shade gives off cooler light and a</p><p>creamy,off-white shade provides a warmer light.</p><p>Once youve viewed the colors in their actual</p><p>environment you will get a true sense of the</p><p>feeling they create.</p><p>Create a Mini Color Scheme BoardCollect chip samples of the colors youve </p><p>selected. If you need a larger area to view, buy</p><p>small paint samples and paint your colors on an</p><p>oversized board. Then gather samples of any</p><p>fabric, flooring,or wall covering that you may</p><p>use and lay the elements together,overlapping</p><p>your colors.</p><p>Now step back and look at the total palette</p><p>youve created. This is the best way to </p><p>determine if your selections truly create the</p><p>look that youve envisioned with the rest of </p><p>the elements in your room.</p><p>Base: Blue Odyssey B47-5Trim: Moonlit Snow C40-3</p><p>Base: Serene Sea B53-3Trim: Shooting Star A50-1</p><p>Choose Your ColorsSelect your dominant or base color.
