Bridget Beari Color Rule #15

Bridget Beari Color Rule:


A Perfect Match isn't Always the Best Choice. 

When decorating a room it is important to blend colors. Matching colors of the sofa or rug to the wall color does not create a interesting balance to a room. You want the colors to be slightly off so you can create depth of color from one item to the next. 

See how the red of the wall is different from the red of the rug or drapery. 

For a brilliant red try Bridget Beari Color

Max-A-Million No. 23

The green of these walls does not perfectly match the lighter green in the chairs but the contrast is nice. The walls are much richer in the darker color rather than the more chartreuse green in the chair fabric. 

This is a fun green: Puddytat No. 38. 

Sidebar: Max-a- Million is my client's rottweiler. I have known them for at least 10 years. He is a big boy but sweet as can be. 

Tip: 48" table fits 6 people and a 60" table fits 8 people. 

Happy Painting......

Thanks for the comment. Fine Paints is really high quality paint. Have you tried it before? I'm so happy to be a part of their family.
