Hi, I'm Ann Myrick and today we're going to talk about bedroom painting ideas. I'm in the master bedroom and the color that I have on the wall is kind of a fleshy, peachy color that I do not like at all. So I am going to want to decide on a wall color, and then how I want to paint the room. In using paint, there, other than just straight painting your walls, there's many different things that you can do. If I wanted to use, one color will keep it from, it will keep it looking consistent and not chop the room up but a lot of times it's fun to accent maybe one wall. So if I wanted to pick out like a neutral color but then come back with a dark brown color, or come back with a dark green color, or a color that I really wanted in the room but I didn't want all four walls. Then I could pick a wall out. I might pick out the wall that my bed is against and put one great color on that wall and then the rest of, the other three walls I would do another color. So there would just be an accent on that wall and then it would really show the bed off really well. Other things you can do. There's many different techniques with paint that you can do. You can stripe, you can do top and bottom, one color on the top, one color on the bottom. You could take your room neutral but then paint your trim. A lot of times you'll see in New York apartments and, those small little apartments you'll see where the walls will be one solid color but then they'll do some fun color like turquoise or yellow on the trim instead of what we would normally do, is the color on the wall and the trim being white. So play with your colors, have fun with colors, and try to just really experiment. These are ideas about how to paint your bedroom.
