Here’s Exactly How To Use Farrow & Ball’s 2021 Trending Paint Colors

When Farrow & Ball released its color trend predictions for 2021 last week, the British brand did the hard work—aka the palette creation—for us, grouping the hues into four chic combinations that take the guesswork out of what actually goes together. “The breadth of our palettes allows people not to be too constrained by a singular color, [especially] as we reconsider our new way of living,” says Patrick O’Donnell, an international brand ambassador for the company. “Multiple areas of the home have gained increased importance, so we wanted to offer a versatile selection that allows for different ambiences, from the home office to calm spaces that take us away from work.” In the spirit of spending more time living and working indoors, we asked O’Donnell exactly where...

Top Designers Say These Are the Best White Paint Colors Ever

If the thought of choosing a paint color pains you, picking out a perfect shade of white is a nightmare come to life. Pure white? Off white? Simply white? Whether you’re painting a home office, ceiling, or the walls of your master bedroom, choosing the right white makes more of a difference than you’d think. To save you from the headache of trying to decide between hues that seem nearly indistinguishable, we got the scoop from top designers on the best shades of white, and where to use them."As a colorist, white is seldom on my mind, but when I need a neutral gallery-esque background, I reach for Cloud Nine by Benjamin Moore. I painted the exterior of my office building in this particular shade and it's the perfect contrast to the gloss black trim." - MA AllenBuy Now"Snow Day is the perfec...

Artists in Rwanda Combat Coronavirus Using Colors

Apart from deploying drones, vans mounted with loudspeakers and arresting violators, the African country Rwanda has turned to artists to create awareness about health protocols to stem the spread of COVID-19. A group of 14 artists has launched a project called Kurema Kureba Kwiga, for designing creative themes to inspire positive behavioral changes among the people. Forcing people to wear the mask, had become a challenge for authorities, as it is a new concept and some people were complaining of breathing issues. The country has so far reported 4,468 COVID-19 cases with 21 deaths, according to US-based Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center. The artists wake up every morning to embark on painting a series of new murals across Rwandan capital Kigali. Speaking to Anadolu Agency, Judit...

Custom truck paint job with Auto Air Colors, LMC Truck on 2003 Chevy Silverado overland build

When we left off last month, we had installed the SnugTop shell and giant Yakima rack, and we were pretty much out of things to do except tear the truck down for paint, so we can bolt on all the cool parts we've been collecting. Behind the scenes, we've slowly been taking care of the prep for paint, first by getting rid of all the stock trim, then roughing out the really bad spots on our junkyard bed and tailgate with some rudimentary metal shaping and filler work. Then we found a reasonable body man for hire who knocked out the rest of the bad spots for us. From there, we spot-primered the whole truck, then gave it a wet sand with 220-grit sandpaper. We did it all again with 400-grit then finally attached the new HD hood from LMC Truck and hit the road for LGE-CTS.While this quick and dir...

Paint Colors That Go With Honey Spice Cabinets | Home Guides

Honey Spice cabinetry has a toasty glow and a warm orange undertone -- or underlying hue -- that coordinates with wide-ranging hues. Though comparatively light, Honey Spice cabinetry is dark enough to contrast with softer hues, while providing enough color intensity to enliven darker grays, especially when the gray's undertone is a color wheel opposite -- or complement -- of orange. Along with a few bright accents, Honey Spice cabinetry illuminates neutral backdrops, and due to its inherent warmth, it also provides a good foundation for tone-on-tone kitchens, where shades of earthen orange intermingle. Fire and Ice The warm orange-brown intensity of Honey Spice cabinetry blends with tan walls and orange-brown rolled blinds, while contrasting with countertops and flooring in sla...

Late ’70s to Early ’80s Popular Decorating Colors | Home Guides

Like all decor trends, the popular colors schemes between 1976 and 1984 did not arise in a vacuum. During the late 1970s and early 1980s -- that brief interlude between waning hippie influences and the beginning of a more conservative era -- decorators and their clients made some interesting decorating selections. To fully appreciate the features of this transitional period -- consider the cheerful, autumnal palette of the early 1970s along with the dark, cool Christmas-like palette of the middle to late 1980s. Late 1970s Earth Tones Toward the end of the 1970s, a preference for brown and other neutrals gained momentum. Early-1970s decor featured saturated warm colors, such as pumpkin, avocado green and harvest yellow. In contrast with the cool, ice-cream pastels of the '50s an...

How to Make Interior Paint Colors Flow From Room to Room | Home Guides

At some point -- at least for some -- just painting it all off-white wears thin. Choosing the perfect interior paint colors can be both intimidating and absorbing, but knowing how to link colors to each other makes the selection process easier and more successful. Use basic color theory, accents and repetition to help paint colors flow from room to room, enhancing the size and character of interior space. Monotone Color Schemes One way to tie spaces together visually is to use different intensities of a single color as a constant from room to room. Depending on furniture, accents and accessories, each shade of a neutral color like sandy beige, from near-white to a medium tone, takes on its own character, but rooms retain a color-family feel, and space takes on an uninterrupte...

What Paint Colors Go With Oil-Rubbed Bronze? | Home Guides

Different paint colors complement oil-rubbed bronze due to its variegated undertones, the underlying hues. Like the Old World bronze patinas it mimics, some varieties of oil-rubbed bronze are susceptible to change over time, but within tone-on-tone rooms, you can incorporate different types of oil-rubbed bronze, embracing changes in finish as they come. Contrast is established by painting walls in a complementary color, or its color wheel opposite, and when a room features oil-rubbed bronze with different underlying hues, tone provides a tool to unify the different bronze finishes, as does a common undertone. Seeing Red Like its cast bronze forerunners from the Victorian-era, today's oil-rubbed bronze finishes are often blackish with red undertones, which are more visible on te...

How to Pick Paint Colors for a Room | Home Guides

The color of a room sets the mood of the space and unifies architectural elements, furniture, and room decor, according to Sherwin-Williams. A fresh coat of paint also improves the overall appearance of a room, and may make your home more appealing to future buyers. If you are considering painting a room in your home or other property, set aside plenty of time to shop around, and consider any permanent structural features of the room. Always apply primer before you paint so the old color won't affect the new one. Browse home improvement store galleries, paint books and the Internet to find color schemes that appeal to you. House Beautiful magazine provides a free online paint color picker that allows users to experiment with various color shades and schemes. Coordinate paint ...
