I have a small condo with big dreams – one of those is changing the boring taupe walls into something a bit more exciting, yet somehow soothing. This is a combination that is hard to fathom and even harder to manage. Enter Judith Paul’s “Guide to Select the Perfect Colors for Your Home: 5 Extremely Easy Steps.” This Interior Designer offers up the tips and the expert advice in an easy to use and follow guide that actually answers some common questions instead of the more prevalent, “Well… what I would do..” mantra of some other design books.
After going through the guide and filling in the answers to the questions I have come to the conclusion that my condo CAN have both a soothing and an exciting theme – the bedrooms will be calmer, more in the blues or violet tones while the living room will splash a bit of vibrancy in warmer colors. Armed with this awareness and a solid grasp of the 60-30-10 rule, I am heading to the Home Improvement store soon to pick up some sample cans and swatches.
This guide is well written and straight forward. Like the title says, these steps are extremely easy – it helps take what can be a complicated decision and makes it obvious and approachable.
