  2. Hi, I have oak windows doors and furniture in my living room.And the flooring is white coloured tiles. which wall color look good for the walls?

  3. We have this big hall which we will be using for dining and living room, our living room has brick walls on two sides of the room , for that I bought Classic Liberty Red (kind of brown with reddish undertone I think).. an antique (light brown) for one biggest side of the wall and for one wall in the dining, I chose orange. (all from dulux) .. In total using 3 colours. Is it going to look good all together? ..I can always buy new paint and use the old fr other rooms.. if you can give some suggestions

  4. Hello guys. What would you suggest for my room? I'm planning on making it both a studio and bedroom. Thanks!

  5. My room is very small but I'm planning to paint it light pink. If that's a bad idea, do you have any other suggestions??

  6. hi thanks you for this informative video. I have a little room but with lot of dark wooden furniture what colors would you suggest me to choose??

  7. I want kind of a vintage look to my bedroom, I was thinking a very light olive color but do you have any other suggestions?

  8. SHE SAYS THIS: CHOOSE WARMER DARKER COLORS IN COLD CLIMATE AREAS (areas that have more cold months during the year than hot months) & CHOOSE LIGHTER COOLER COLORS IN WARM CLIMATE AREAS (areas that have more warm months during the year than cold months). This is because the warmer darker colors will absorb & retain heat better in cold weather while the lighter cooler colors will not absorb & give off the heat inside the house in warm climate areas, keeping it cooler inside.

  9. Never paint the sample on the wall people. The blue tape will leave a ridge when you pull the tape off that will telegraph thru any new paint layer. Plus it will have to be painted over by primer. And if you get distracted and don't paint, your stuck with those paint squares for months. Paint it on poster board and move the sample around the room.

  10. Bad advice. Forget the word "warm" colors because with bad lighting it can look really dark and not cozy at all. Use strong colors in warm places such as africa, mediterranean or any tropical places. Use light "cold" colors with good lighting in colder places. But it's not a must either, if something looks really good, then go with it.

  11. Where is all the variety that is in the whole world except America, where gold, silver pearl, all sorts of bronze, shiny colors? The feeling that everywhere for a hundred years ahead live! !!!!

  12. Well, as of now we are very confused and have hard time thinking what to paint on the walls and ceilings… and we just focus first on what is the elders favorite color (grandma and grandpa), since it is an old type/design of house…so, we gone to blue(daughter's fav color), green(grandpa), orange(grandma)… and the house has sentimental value, that's why grandma choose green and orange combination on their room😅 now, how we will do that now?

  13. “Red is the most passionate colour.”, “Orange is full of action.”… incredibly scientific information. Did you find this out from double blind studies, or from a peer reviewed paper?

  14. Okay I need some help I am moving to a cold climate and I like bright colors and colorful colors, I have wall decorations that is nice and colorful but I can’t find a paint that is going to match my colorful decorations I was thinking white but I am scared it will be to bright do you have any suggestions?

  15. I think I’m going to paint all of my walls grey and have one wall black… my parents won’t let me to white😒 then I’m going to have yellow accent items around the room and yellow bedding. I will have black furniture (desk, bookcase, bed) and maybe a white comfy chair… idk I’m terrible at this

  16. I got to say this..at 1:25 that is the exact color I just painted my bathroom, the issue is that I'd decided hours later I decided I hate it, and never intended to paint it that color, though I did two coats and it never occured to me that it was LIGHT BLUE WITH A SLIGHT GREY TONE. How did I end up with that color, if it was not what I wanted? I'd taken a rug to H.D, had them color match it using the computer, they gave me a sample..I painted a couple 1' x 1' sections and couldn't belive how dark it was. So, (short version)..I bought a gallon of ultra white, dumped in 2, than another 8 oz sample of that color. But instead of it being the same color (a greyish tourquise)..it turned it light blue.. Am I insane or is it really this hard to pick a color, like the color, live with the color? The color sample used a medium base, maybe switching from medium base to the ultra white base is why it turned out such a different color tone?

    I think the best thing I can do is take the rug, and let one of the employees help me pick a new color off the charts (the color of the rug but a lighter tone). I had allready tried to do it by eye and also ended up with it "too light blue"..and yes, did it two coats before realizing what I'd done.
    I have no problem deciding if I like the color ONCE IT IS DONE, but the problem is trying to figure out what color I'd like..the chart is part of the problem too, the samples are only about 1/2" x 1/2" (Behr).

    I might add that light blue is my least favorite color, I think it dates back to my late teens and my Dad would not let me paint my bedroom which was light blue. I eventually was allowed to and it that made me feel so much better and I like the new color, actually put me in a better mood everytime I entered the room, which was now a simple cream color and not semi-gloss like before but eggshell. My summary, your not crazy if you'd had similar problems, but you need to figure out what you want before you paint it.

  17. I do like some light, natural colors such as butter, sky and light raspberry but I absolutely love 3 of my very favorite color shades ever:

    1. Bright/lemon yellow
    2. Bright purple/electric indigo
    3. Bright turquoise/neon aqua

  19. Hello, and thanks for this helpful video. Do you always have to paint primer over an existing color before repainting for great results?

  20. There are soooo many different grey and beige shades. I don‘t just don’t know what to choose😭😩. Any tipps? And does anyone with a cool grey room, think it‘s to “cold“

  21. Great informative video! Can you recommend a color for a north facing low light kitchen with brown granite counters, creamy white cabinets, copper backsplash and black appliances. The floors are medium oak with golden orange tones. Currently painted Ben Moore Manchester tan which is too bland and dreary. I was looking at Gourmet Honey or Golden Gate or some kind of warm neutral as possibilities. Thanks in advance
