How to Add Color to Your Walls

Image from Hirshfield’s

So you have a large, open space and you have no idea how to add some pizazz to your safe, neutral walls.  You find inspiration in shelter magazines or in blog posts, such as Annie’s Colorful Abode or Casey’s Loft.  You walk into the paint store, pictures of your room in hand, intent on picking out a color that does not have the words “tan” or “gray” in the paint color name.  Then you arrive at the wall of paint chips…you then go into that glazed deer-in-the-headlights look.  Where to start?  Luckily local paint store Hirshfield’s has the know-hows in their recent blog post on adding colored accent walls.  Head on over to Hirshfield’s Color Club blog to find out how to add some hue to your walls!
