Strategic Interior Painting
It is important to keep in mind tone alone does not create the entire platform for an environment. It only sets the backdrop. Other items to consider are lighting – artificial and natural, room location, furniture, wall décor, carpeting, and wall design.
Consider this: Next time you walk into a restaurant, a store, a salon, a coffee shop, computer store, florist shop, or any other business in Victoria, ask yourself ”What feeling overtook me the second I stepped into the environment?”. Notice how the store was strategically decorated to stimulate an emotion in order to stimulate you to action. More importantly, observe the colors on the wall.
Next time you are choosing color for your bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, living room, or office, it is important discuss with your The Painters Inc. Contractor how you want you or others to feel while they are in the room. Do you want to rest easy and be relaxed, or is this the room you do your daily workouts in. Is it an office or a personal getaway? Mood is color and color is mood.
