I am in the midst of writing an e-guide on How to Choose the Right Colors for Your Rooms” that I will be giving away to my readers. In general, it will cover some secrets on how I use color (and some common mistakes that you should avoid) but the main point of the guide will be to give you some tools that will make choosing color easier…and less fear-inducing!

But, I need some help from you, my wonderful readers and followers. I need to know what you are struggling with when it comes to making color choices in your home. In the comments below, just jot down some things that made you crazy, made you cry…maybe even made you laugh when you saw how a color came out on your wall. I think I know most of the problems that people have – but I want to hear from you. Tell me your issues and struggles and I will put solutions to them in the e-guide.

The guide will cover topics such as…

  • How to use the color wheel successfully in developing beautiful color schemes
  • Why and how light changes paint colors: Becoming aware of this can make color decisions easier
  • Creating the mood and emotion you want to feel in a room
  • How to eliminate a lot of colors from the vast number of choices on the market today: Why the fixed elements in your room are the keys to your color choices
  • Best colors for north, south, east and west facing rooms
  • How paint colors can help a tall room look cozier…a short room look taller…a long room look shorter

If any of those topics resonate with you, please sign up and subscribe to this blog, so you will be the first to know when it will be available. It should be ready within a week or two. Until then…please write down some problems and concerns that you are having. That will help me so much in putting this guide together.

Thanks…hope to hear from you soon!

    1. Color troubles, den
    North facing room, porch overhand limits light.
    9′ ceilings double window
    Go medium dark of just dark, I know painting light won’t make the room bigger, 12×15

    2. Straight walls with angled wall up to ceiling, where to stop start wall and ceiling colors, or do the same?

    3. Please discuss meaning of mixing paint to 50%, 25%, versus just adding white to dilute.

      Hi – can you send me some pics of your room? I would love to help you out! Is your room going to be used as a TV room…an all round family room? Knowing the function of your room would help me to help you!

      If you have a room that’s 9 feet – does that include the angle or not? The 50 and 25% mixing white or other color for you may apply – it’s really a technique to avoid just painting your ceiling plain white. For example, if you go with a mid tone green, adding 25-50% of a white or off white for your ceiling color will help you to avoid that abrupt change to white on your ceiling.

      Please send a pic and I can help you!!
