What better birthday present is there than a remodel and redesigned room for your March birthday? Choosing a paint color can be a huge task, there are literally thousands on the market and by different paint companies too. It may help for you to make a choice designed around the ever increasingly popular paint colors of the month.
Sherwin Williams March 2017 Color of the Month
Sherwin Williams’s current color of the month is Deep Forest Brown (SW 9175 252-C4) As the name implies, it is a dark brown color that is manufactured in both interior and exterior paints. It works well to make a room feel more cozy and intimate. A large room, such as a great room, family room or dining room can be updated with a darker color, such as this one for a rich tone on the walls.
Coordinating colors to use on your trim work and ceiling include Sherwin Williams Creamy (SW 7012) for a creamy white accent, Cocoa Whip (SW 9084) for a light chocolate color or Natural Linen (SW9109) for a color that is a bit warmer than Creamy.
For a splash of color in a smaller area as a breakfast area or a reading nook, you may want to paint only one wall in Deep Forest Brown as an accent wall. This color supports artwork with lighter colored frames to make them pop on your walls.
You can choose from a huge array of window top treatments and custom fabric throw pillows for accents in your newly painted room. The green and yellow color palettes for window treatments and pillows work well, as a contrast of nature such as trees with brown trunks and yellow or green leaves that are starting to emerge in the spring.
Milk Paint Colors of the Month for March 2017
Milk paint creates a project that is restored historically or it can be used to create an object that you want to make appear as if it is a treasured family heirloom. You should either purchase an unfinished piece or strip the current paint or stain off the item before using milk paint. This type of paint produces a rich and velvety feel when added to a piece for a homey and calm feeling.
The March milk paint colors are Trophy and French Enamel. Trophy is a grayish color that works well on any type of furniture for an antique look; much like an old silver trophy would look when it tarnishes. This color works well on dressers and wardrobes in the bedroom, side tables in a living room or bedroom and on a fireplace mantel. French Enamel is a bluish-green hue that was popular on vases and decorations from a much older era. This color is popular to use in a kitchen for a bright and cheery setting. It is considered to be much like a country blue and is often used in bedrooms for a light and airy appearance.
Painting a wooden chest with milk paint and placing it in your living room allows it to do double duty as a storage piece and also as a coffee table. Many interior decorators choose this piece for a focal point in a room. Some designers choose to have a custom-made fabric covered pad in a coordinating color to add to the top of the chest in a smaller room. This supplies your home with an extra seating area. You can tie in all of your coordinating color schemes with a light and airy window treatment or recover an existing chair in the same decorator fabric.
Choose a color and a project for your birthday month based on the seasonal color palettes. Your project can be any size from very small to a large-scale room makeover, but you deserve it for your birthday.
