Using Paint to Update a Room


In the Foyer

What better place for a burst of bright color than in your foyer or entryway? Try a warm, inviting color – like orange or yellow – and accent it with family photos and your favorite mementos. This is also an ideal place to try a pattern (think wide stripes or a fun stencil) to add a little personality without going overboard.
