Recently, I received this email from one of my on-line clients:
Thank you for your consultation about half a year ago.
We finally had a chance to re-paint the dining room.
This color looked fabulous in the hallway, however there is something wrong how it feels with this color in the dining room.
Something just doesn’t feel right and I can’t understand exactly what. Is there anything you could recommend to fix it?
Maybe re-paint the paneling into cream or yellow?
I think it looks great so I’m not sure what you’re seeing (and I’m NOT saying that because I picked it). When the colour doesn’t relate to anything in the room, that’s when people criticize it the most. In other words, everything in there is white and there is no pattern with green (for example) that you can see relates to the walls, if you like the way it looks in the hallway that most likely doesn’t get much natural light maybe that means you should go darker in the dining room because you have natural light in there.
Let me know what you think. Maria
A few days later I received another email after she found some artwork in another room:
Just wanted to share how it came out.
I think it looks nice now 🙂
Beautiful job Irina! Such a difference between the before without any colour and the after!
Is it important for you to know which green she used?
Because unless it relates to something, it won’t look good in your space either.
