How to Choose a Warm Blue Paint Color

Are you feeling blue? Maybe it has to do with the color blue you have in your home. Let me explain. Color is powerful and can sway your mood depending on it’s warm or cool hues. Reds, yellows, oranges and beige or creamy colors are WARM while Blues, greens and grays are COOL. Remember the color wheel from elementary school? But color can be tricky because some cool colors can actually feel warmer and that’s why this week I’m answering C Schaan’s question from Youtube who asks how do you pick a warm blue? Well, C Schaan every color has varying values some will appear brighter and others darker. Lighter colors have white more white in them and you guessed it the darker colors have more black in them. Usually the warmer blues are lighter and will have more yellow or green undertones in them. If you want to use a […]

Using Word Phrase Decals in Home Staging or Decor

Here’s a question from a FB Fan sparked this video on how to use word phrase decals when selling your home.

I really like using decals and words in stagings, because you can subconsciously tell people how they should be feeling in your home. I’ve successfully used them in stagings, and I find that as long as […]
