If you’re looking for a fast and easy way to prepare your home for the holidays, or any reason for that matter, what could be simpler and least time consuming than a fresh coat of paint?
So on 9-25-12, we began examining Pantone’s 10 colors for Spring 2013, beginning with Dusk Blue 16-4120. Today we explore Poppy red 17-1664.
Libraries are perfect rooms for red. Include the ceiling. I usually recommend painting the ceiling of a room a tint of the wall color, but that would make your ceiling pink! A benefit of a red room is that with properly layered lighting (all on dimmers) and window treatments, you can make it as bright or seductively dark as you’d like. This library serves as a media room, intimate entertainment space, and family room. The lighting is easily adjusted for whatever the occasion. It can be darkened to watch tv without glare, warmly inviting for friends, or bright and cheery for family game night. Other colors introduced are a subdued yellow incorporated in the chairs, drapes, and ottoman – Ketchup and French fries!
