A guide to color

 

House & Garden cover, 1948 Color palette:

I got this “guide” here, but it’s also on Pinterest. Notice that it’s from 1948. And interesting take and a break from the ubiquitous color wheel.  Remember my small rant? I really don’t spend a lot of time on it, as I know many do. My attention span is only so long! But since I am spending a lot of time looking at paint chips and paint sample boards, it’s interesting to find colors on Pinterest. I found pictures of rooms painted with colors that I’m considering. That’s helpful. I kind of know what I want to do with the walls, but the floor covering escapes me. I have carpet currently and like it…but, right now, I think I may have to go with wood. It’s like denim and jeans; it goes with everything. On the other hand, it’s noisier, shows dust bunnies more, and is more expensive. What to do, what to do…it’ll come to me. In the meantime, has anyone ever painted an interior wall mural? I found one I love, but that’s for later.
