Working with Color... Intro

by Felicia Benton


As a designer and a Design Consultant for Thomasville Furniture, I am often asked how one chooses color.  From the color of what to paint the walls or what color should they use for their sofa… it seems that this is always a hard and fearful task.  To address the issue I begin at first to start talking about their room. We begin to discuss the flooring, the walls, and other items that may be in the room to help them choose a color that would work.   I explain what colors or hues would work.  How each color will add interest, and how it will make the room feel.  Following this in-depth discussion, I always receive the same question… how do you know?

Well… for the next three weeks I will give you some tips on how you can add color to your space. From paint to flooring, from furniture to accessories, color plays a big part in your space.  Learn how to choose that accent color, how to create warmth, or how to create that resort feeling.   Moreover, how to tie it all together to make your space pop.
