What makes choosing colors for your walls so difficult?
- Colors on a tiny samples appear different than those colors on a whole wall.
- Perception of the color on a wall changes throughout the day as the light changes.
- Colors look different when placed next to different colors.
- Warm colors and cool colors invoke different moods and can make a room seem either larger or more cozy.
“Steve understands color intellectually and emotionally. He mixes color with light — by that I mean he knows how light bouncing off color on a wall will change color on another wall next to it or across the room from it. He paints with the light, not just with the brush. Steve can be bold with color in subtle ways. He can use purple the way others use beige, as a neutral. The purple he chose for my walls serve to draw the eye to the greenery framed by the window, not the walls. His custom trim color echoes the pale grey-purple mottling of the hickory trees outside. He used one of my favorite North Carolina coffee mugs as inspiration for a faux finish in the dining room. The result is a warm welcoming home, uniquely in harmony with my life.”
