Residential Color and Style from a Certified True Color Expert.

Proof your dark hallway shouldn’t be light beige

If you are like me, you were always told that you have to paint a dark room a light color.

Well, we were told wrong!  

A light color in a dark room will turn “Landlord Beige.”

Go darker and richer in a dark room, and a stunning result will be yours.

Just a little tidbit I learned when I went through True Colour Expert Training. 

Repeat after me:  “A light color will never come to life in a dark room.” (Thank you, Maria Killam!) (click on Maria’s name to link to her site).

  1. well said, the one thing I notice about clients homes… if they or the builder got the colour right on the walls etc I do not notice the paint colours, everything just follows nicely…. when the colour is wrong it’s all I can see… measuring the room is so much harder because the wall keep talking to me…
    so loved my class with Maria Killam too! I use her paint samples more and more with clients…
