Quick and Simple Painting Tips

If you're moving into a new home, or simply want a change, painting your walls is a great way to make a home your own. Make sure you pick colors that match your furniture, or else replace some items to give your house a nice, cohesive look.

Choose your paint color: If you are painting as part of your Style Cure, now is the time to make the call on the color. This is an exciting moment!

Don't be afraid to embrace what feels right. You can be confident that you are ready to choose. During the first seven days of the Cure, you've been doing quite a bit of really looking and thinking about design, while taking and collecting appealing images. You already know what you want and now, you just have to name it.
