How Do I Choose an Accent Wall Color for Interior Painting?

In this video, Erica Lugbill, owner of Lugbill Designs–a high-end residential remodeling and interior design firm in Chicago–covers some tips on how you can pick a color for your accent wall.

Before anything else, the first thing to evaluate is the size of your room. Erica said that if your space is small you may not want to choose an accent wall. In this case, an accent wall will break the flow of your limited space and can make the whole room feel smaller.

Likewise, if your space is large enough, look at the main color of your walls. The undertones will guide you through selecting the perfect accent color. For instance, if the walls have grey undertones, look at your color deck and choose colors with the same undertones. And if your wall colors have a more brown undertone, then go to warmer colors.

Erica advises: “the trick is to not have too crazy or wild of a color.” You want to choose a color that can work with the main wall color of your space.

How to Lower the Brightness of a Color Painting?

In this video, Erica Lugbill, owner of Lugbill Designs, a high-end home remodeling and interior designs firm in Chicago, shares some professional advice on how to lower the brightness of a color painting to ensure that it blends well with your home’s interior design.

 

1. Use a Steel Wool or Sandpaper

You can use a steel wool or a sandpaper to achieve a nice aged effect. Just rub the painting at different spots to tone down the color and create that aged look.

 

2. Use a Sponge

One alternative to the previous technique is to use a sponge. Wet the sponge and soak up some of the paint on the canvas while the paint is still wet. This is an option that can be used to replace steel wool or sandpaper, depending on the finish of the painting that you want to achieve and whichever works best with your interior design.

 

3. Dilute a Brown Paint

Another option that you can try is to take a brown paint and dilute it with water. Brush the solution over the painting to dull down the painting and give it a more diluted look.

What Curtain Colors Go With a Lavender & Purple Wall?

Have you experienced difficulty in choosing the right curtain to pair with a lavender or purple wall? You’ll never have to worry about that again.

In her video, Erica Lugbill of Lugbill Designs, a high-end home remodeling and interior designs firm in Chicago, shares some useful information in finding the right curtain colors to pair with a lavender or purple wall.

 

The Best Curtain Colors for a Lavender Wall

While many people will find a limited selection of colors to use with a lavender wall, Erica Lugbill presented several color options that can create a striking improvement in any space.

1. Soft Ivory

This shade is considered as the more appealing color to use with a purple wall. Choose a linen curtain in that color to create a fresh, airy and light effect that guarantees to brighten up any space.

2. Neutral Colors

Combining dark neutrals with the strong and intensely striking color of purple creates a strong impact. Use of lighter shades, such as medium gray or charcoal gray also delivers outstanding results.

3. Deep Plum

Last but not the least is a deep plum color. This shade can create a nice monochromatic tone-on-tone design in any room.
