Updating Your Look – Paint


Theater Lobby, Interior Design by Kathy Alexander, Alexander Interiors


Repainting is an inexpensive way of changing the look and feel of your rooms.  Do you have a room that just looks washed out or one that feels too heavy and dark?  Are all your rooms white or beige?  Now’s the time to make the correction.  The right color can make a room sing and change how you feel about the space.  If you are afraid of color, then hire a professional to select the colors for you.  Life is too short to be living in your home with sensory deprivation or overload. 

One piece of advice is don’t follow the color trends.  Instead, select a color that will enhance what you already have in the colors of your furniture and furnishings. Come up with a color scheme for the public areas of your home and stick to it.   Paint is the last selection I make after all the furniture and fabrics have been determined; that way, you are not limited in the selection of your fabrics by committing to your paint choice too soon. – Alexander Interiors, McLean, VA
