Wallcovering Tips and Tricks


Emphasize With Color

Many rooms have features you'll want to accent, like a fireplace or beautiful old door. You can make these items a focal point by either surrounding them with intense color and keeping the featured item in a neutral or contrasting tone (for example, a white fireplace against a bright royal blue wall), or by painting a door and its frame in a color and making the wall more subdued (doing so draws the eye into the doorway, thereby enhancing its features).
