I am often approached by people who ask me, “What’s your favorite color?” or, “what’s your favorite word?” I can honestly say I am not very knowledgeable about colors. Most of my friends and family are, but I am pretty new to the color world and am not a professional colorist.
To be honest, I am not sure I have a favorite color. I think the colors I like the most are black and gray. I also really like blue and purple, but I think I am a pretty neutral person. I am not sure what my favorite word is, or anything, so I am not sure what to say about it.
I am sure I have said this before, but I think it is important to consider your own personal preferences. When it comes to decorating a room, a lot of the time, it really doesn’t matter what colors you paint a room with. It is all about what you feel the owner of the home wants to see in it. If your home is a place where you want to be comfortable and cozy, the first thing you should do is paint the walls in a neutral shade.
I agree. You don’t have to paint a room in a neutral shade to make it more cheerful. The key is being able to use a room with more contrast in style and color. The key is to make a room feel less impersonal with the use of neutral colors. A room that is more neutral than you would like to paint would be a room that you would not enjoy looking at.
I can’t imagine spending a lot of time on a room you don’t like. Paint is one of those things you have to get used to, and once you do, you can’t really hide it.
I know it seems like all painting stuff is about contrast, but it is not. Contrast can be used to get a room more “sexy” depending on the style you choose. Contrast can be used to make a room feel less impersonal, but there is no way to make a room feel less impersonal just because you have a few more colors on it.
Contrast is a really important aspect of any room, and most people have an innate sense about what they love and what they don’t. But you can’t tell that to someone who has spent their entire life painting their entire house, and it’s the only way to feel that you have lived a life you love.
The concept of contrast is so fundamental that it has even been part of the fabric of our culture since its birth. It is the reason that so many of our most popular styles are based around color. Color is a very personal thing to most people, and they don’t want something to be so boring they become annoyed. You are the only person who can tell if you have the same taste as a person you grew up with.
