The hardest decision when decorating is picking colors.  Many paint stores now have oversized samples of certain colors, or quart-sized containers.

Pick up your top choices, invest in small containers, and paint It is well worth the investment of a few dollars to  of the most expensive processes in decorating is the wall prep needed after the wallpaper is removed.

A cheaper option is to remove the wallcovering and apply a texture.  the texture can then be painted in any color.

bomExterior Colors That Last

Are there options for longer-lasting exterior paint?

According to Sherwin-Williams, some colors hold their brilliance a little longer.   

 Organic color pigments include the brighter colors, such as blues and greens.  They tend to fade more quickly than inorganic color pigments, such as red iron oxide or brown oxide.

Also, high quality acrylic latex house paints will retain their color better than solvent-based paints.

The Effect of Color in Nursing Homes

 nursing home social

Research shows that color can affect behavior.  In a nursing home, the nurses' station should be done in cool colors or those that are highly reflective.  This reduces shadows, improves visbility, and can contribute to higher productivity.  Cool colors also reduce stress and tension.

Reds and yellows are social colors as they stimulate and excite. These are ideal hues for cafeterias, lounges and lobbies ... places where social interaction takes place.

In resident rooms, the color depends on how long a person is expecting to occupy the room.  Rooms for short-term residents should have neutral or pastel colors with few visual accents.  In rooms with long-term care residents, a balance of color and contrasting tones will keep the space looking fresh and inviting.
