Paint Colors That Make a Room Look Bigger

I just wanted to share an article that I ran across....

Image result for free pictures of paint colorsA room’s size is sometimes a matter of perception, and the paint color on the walls has a lot to with that perception. Some colors can actually make a room appear smaller, while other colors can make the walls expand and feel larger.® recently highlighted some of the paint colors to create the illusion of more space, including:
White: White reflects light, thereby making a space look brighter and feel more open. “White will make any room appear bigger and complement the natural lighting,” Than Merrill, a real estate investor and host of A&E’s “Flip This House” told®.
Yellow: A creamy and soft yellow can also reflect light, and can create a softer alternative to white (as long as it’s not too bold of a yellow). Add white accents, such as on the trim, to add further dimension to the room.
Gray: A calming, light shade can help expand a room and, unlike white, doesn’t cast off a glare.
Monochromatic color schemes: Use a monochromatic color scheme for the entire space to open it up (in other words, stick with the white, gray or soft yellow and don’t introduce then a bolder color). “Choose rugs, furniture, and accents in similar shades – like a patterned rug in white and light gray,”®’s article suggests. “This creates a minimalist, clean look that makes the entire space feel larger.”

Organizing Tip

Here is a great tip that I ran across that I thought I would share with you.

If you are thinking of having a garage sale make sure that you wash or clean up the item and before storing it go ahead and decide on a price and put a price sticker on it. That way when you start to take stuff out for the garage sale you will have it priced and all you will need to do is figure out how to set everything up.

Do you have any great garage sale tips? If you do please leave a comment and tell us about them.

Christmas Craft: Pom Pom Ornament

My youngest daughter is always wanting to craft something. So I try to find cute crafts that include stuff we have laying around here. I ran across this cute ornament and I just had to share it with ya'll. You can check out the directions here.

I am not sure if I will use the pins or hot glue them.

Thanks Zakka Life.
