Don't Be Afraid of Colors
Start by zeroing in on a strong color that can easily be integrated into your current décor. Then work it into your color scheme a step at a time. If your aim is to create a more dramatic dining room, for example, incorporate a dark color by way of a new tablecloth. Like what you see? Then add some matching accents. Still happy? Now, you can think about painting your walls.
Dark colors can indeed be beautiful but applying darker colored paint can be difficult. Surface imperfections may show through more prominently with a darker color, brush strokes or uneven application may be easier to see on a dark wall, and darker colors will usually require multiple coats. And, the type of paint being used really matters when you go dark.
At Old Village Master Painters we know how to work with darker colors. Our craftsmen are experts at surface preparation, including plaster walls found in older and historically significant homes. And we recommend and use only top quality paints and finishes.
Of course, not everyone has a fear of dark colors; some people love them. If you’re in that camp, then by all means saturate your home interior with saturated colors. Deep greens, rich reds, glamorous golds, and a host of other strong shades can make your home feel more luxurious and psychologically comforting.
