You can trick the senses

Use colors to “age”  your home.

You don’t need to go with the latest trends in color to spruce up your place.  Medieval colors are usually dark colors like blues, reds, purples, oranges, gold, scarlets, umbers, azures and browns.

You could add some to your walls to accent furniture, (as in a painting technique to make your wall look like stone) or paint an entire wall as an accent color (maybe a deep purple or blue).  You can use  bronzing, silver leafing, stencils, and other finishes to add accents to moldings, and furniture.

 

These are just some ideas to get you thinking about what you like and what you want. Always remember, it is YOU who chooses.

There will be more to come on this subject.  Stay tuned…..
