Winter Painting Projects

winter painting closetsHappy New Year from J. W. Graham Painting Co.  Clinical tests show one sure fire way to get rid of the winter doldrums is paint!  A fresh coat of paint can work wonders as we head into the long haul of winter. If your having trouble deciding on colors, here are 5 little tricks you can use to find the perfect color inspiration.

1. Your Closet

Opening your closet doors is an excellent way to find color inspiration. A personal decorating style is usually reflective of your fashion taste. Have a favorite blue bathrobe? A favorite burnt orange or green scarf? A favorite pair of jeans? If you love it in your wardrobe, you are probably going to love it on your walls as well.

2. Fabric

Similar to your wardrobe, fabrics used throughout your home are useful tools for color selection. Window treatments, pillows, throws, and bedding all contain inspirational colors and textures that can be utilized for color selection throughout your home.

3. TV Shows and Movies

Replicating sets from T. V. shows and movies can also take a lot of the nervousness out of color selection and design because you have a visual of the color on the walls, trim, furniture, etc. so you know what your room will look like before it is painted.

4. Magazines

W. Graham is constantly adjusting with the trends.  A great way to stay up to speed with the latest color trends are decorating and home improvement magazines. There is nothing wrong with copying design. If someone else has already done the work, go ahead and borrow their idea. Decorating magazines are also a great way to push your design style to another level and do something you normally wouldn’t do.

5. is not just about country crafts and architectural design; its a great resource for room ideas and color inspiration. Not sure how to use? If you have an idea such as a navy dining room, but aren’t sure how to find the right shade, try typing in “navy dining rooms”. More than likely a number of rooms will come up with all the color information you need. Make sure to follow J. W. Graham Painting on
