Tips for using color successfully
Don't be afriad, if you hate it, it is easy to change. Dark walls create a great atmosphere. Paint large pieces of cardboard with your different choices instead of painting it directly on the walls. It works so much better, put the colour up against the wall to see the effect in different parts of the room. Depending on the time of day the colour can look totally different.
