Lights, camera, ACTIVE color!
When you are choosing the color of your home (interior and exterior), be sure to think about the lighting. Are there lots of shadows in that tray ceiling you want painted? Maybe you will want to keep the whole room the same color and bring the accents by using the lighting that is available. If there is consistant lighting in the whole room, you’ll want to pick out a different color for accent walls so the room “pops”.
Color can change dramatically when new and different lighting is present. Keep this in mind when looking at all those color chips or the fan deck. Try putting the color chips in different lighting and see what happens. You’ll be amazed at slight lighting differences producing much different color outcomes!
If you really want to have some fun, change the color of the light bulbs and then look at the room!
