Trends in Home Home Decor

Buying a brand new homes? If you're both lucky and rich your walls will be bathed in rich hues that make family and friends sit and stay a spell. If you're really blessed you have the gobs of faux finish spattered about with a burnt umber gloss for the aged plaster patina. If you're like the rest of us, sometimes lucky and rich in spirit, you're starring at those white walls wondering how to make winter white look wow. Brrrrr

Brand new homes
sometimes come with pretty colors, but for the most part it's more economical to paint after your house is built. If you're not an interior designer, what can you do to assure your walls welcome you and yours? Here's a few tips from someone just like you--me. Only I have taken the time to write down my wall ponders for your benefit. This is not the decorator's gospel... it's just a normal gal's guide to making her four walls pop.

1. Choose warm colors. If I've learned anything in my life, it's that you want a warm and inviting feeling in a house, unless you are an ultra modern condo dweller. Warm colors with hints of red, orange and yellow remind us of warm sunlight as opposed to cold colors that make you think of being freezing...(who wants that at home?) Neutral colors are just that--neutral, boring, plain and are good for walls as a type of visual relief.
