Hi Bobbie!!! thanks!!! love your hashtags, lol!!!! xoxo
hi Trudy!! thanks for joining today!!
I’m sure your booth will be fabulous! Wish I could see it!
I am dealing with this now! I’ve said from the beginning of our building process… I can’t make those selections until I make these selections. You have to do it all together!! And it’s tricky when you don’t even have drywall in your space. LOVE your perspective.
Crystal, thank you! that’s okay if you don’t have drywall yet- just get true samples of each of your hard finishes, look at them in different lighting, and then look at them in the new construction at different times of day in different lighting. Then when you do have wall board up, you will have it narrowed down so it will be very easy to tell. Congrats on your new home:))
Elizabeth Hudson Scruggs, thank you! I’m so glad you started FB live videos just when I needed you the most.
Crystal sure thing!! any other questions or issues with your new construction?? leave me a comment and I’ll talk to ya about it on my next live- if you have the issue, then chances are there are many others facing the same thing:))
brilliant show and tell on colour
oh my!! thank you SO much Mary! I’m humbled :)))
Elizabeth you’re too modest. That was awesome. And incredibly understandabl
Sorry I missed this! Just closed on a client’s new construction. Funny, I think her gray paint looks blue in some light and she hates the backspash and says it has too much brown in it…maybe it does. And guess what color the cabinets are?? 🙂
Sorry I missed you when I was live too Debbie!! If you think it looks blue, then it is- it has a blue undertone and is being brought out by something else in the space, likely the backsplash. I’m guessing the cabinets are a version of white- most likely a creamy “white” which is making the backsplash read brown. And if they are creamy, they are making the gray look blue, and the result is probably a “dirty” look….amiright?
Yep! Not to mention, down here the hurricane window glass has a green tint to it. So selecting colors without that glass in the space could be a real problem! Maybe that’s what happened. Designers select the finishes, but many times, I think they missed the mark.
Great advice, I needed to hear that today. Trying to change the color in my Kitchen and want the newer colors but just they just don’t look good in my house.
thanks Sandi- hope it helped you some:) listen, when dealing with a space with existing fixed elements, there are really only one or two paint colors that will be correct. In a kitchen, you need to take the cabinet, top, floor, and backsplash (if it’s staying) color and determine the predominant undertone. With that nailed down, the wall color can really only be one of a handfull of choices. A room will tell you what color it needs to be. Don’t get roped in to thinking you have to have “new” colors. Use a nuetral wall color that works with your fixed elements and then bring in any ‘new’ colors in accessories or artwork. The wall color in a space never needs to be the star- it only needs to support and highlight the dominate elements to make them shine!
Thanks so much, will keep you in mind when I build my next house. Have to sell this one first .
great topic! great video!! you go girl!!
thanks sweet friend! Dana♥
White is so hard to pick!
I know right Kimberly? that’s one of the reasons I started studying color early on in my career. When painting millwork, if you don’t get the correct white, then everything will look wrong- it can end up looking off, or even worse…..looking dingy. Thanks for watching and commenting!! great to see you in the car line this week:)
Yes ma’am! You are so right!! I love your videos. So much good information. It was great seeing you as well!!
thanks for watching and your sweet comments Kimberly!
y’all- I don’t even have to pay my aunt to say this stuff…..she just does!! although I *think* she may be a bit partial, lol??? ya reckon??? love you big aunt Barbara!!! ♥♥♥
and I could NOT do what I do without my guys!!! I have the BEST crews EVER!!!! Guille!!
Elizabeth Hudson Scruggs, I really need to schedule some time with you soon. I’m ready to do dining room and kitchen, and it may send me over the edge!!
Great advice. Thank you!
Thanks for watching and commenting Debbie!!
Elizabeth Hudson Scruggs my pleasure. You’re so easy to listen to and watch, and you certainly know your stuff!
