Color and light is visual music that lifts the soul! Using layers of warm colors, shiny surfaces and plush textures, a dialogue between the past and present has been opened. A high gloss finish on the ceiling, trim and cabinetry reflects light in dazzling ways.

Blurred Boundaries 2016 Color Trends and Inspiration for Your Connecticut Home | Behr

Natural greens and blues create a relaxed setting for a bedroom loft space. An ombre alcove is reminiscent of a misty, atmospheric landscape, balanced by black side chairs and abstract artwork. Orange and turquoise are pop accents that reveal a sense of optimism, while a mix of geometric patterns and soft textiles invite you into the room.

Luxe Dimension Color Trends and Inspiration for Your Connecticut Home | Behr

Horizontal borders of color at the top and bottom of a wall help a narrow room feel wider and more expansive. Eye-catching combinations are established through contrasting blends of bright and dark color, sleek lines and translucent surfaces.

Spaces that activate the senses with a playful interaction of color, texture and pattern is one way to ensure your guests will keep coming back for more.

2016 Color Trends and Inspiration for Your Connecticut Home | Behr

As the hypnotic draw of technology lures the masses into an ever plugged-in existence, a need for analog experiences and environmental stimulation drives us to engage the senses of sight, sound, smell and touch in our homes. This new direction in design is raising the bar to create interiors that are appealing to a design-savvy, yet sensory-deprived society. Our 2016 Trends address the importance of color in constructing stimulating environments. You’ll see how you can use varying hues, intensity and lightness levels, patterns and textures to establish your own sensory-rich space. Though each theme uses a different style and color approach, the end result creates interiors with impact and dimensionality.

Steps for Project:
1. Allow base coat of wall to dry 24 hours
2. Determine the placement of your photos in relation to the size of your wall
Measure your wall and divide into increments depending on number of photos & their sizes
(Use a level to insure a straight & accurate line.)
3. Place center points at normal eye level
4. Determine the width of your band for photos to sit over it
5. Using a ruler and level, draw your band using a white charcoal pencil. (easy to erase if you make a mistake.)
6.Drill screws or hammer nails for photo placement. (Remember to find studs or use anchors to safely hold photography in place)
7. Tape off your stripe. Over lap in small sections pressing firmly. If painting stripes the same day, allow base coat to fully dry and I recommend using Scotch Blue Delicate Surface Tape
8. Using a 3-1 Ratio, Pour 3 parts paint (2 shades darker than your desired base color) and 1 part Sherwin Williams Faux Impressions Metallic. Stir
9. Using a 3″ flat or angled sash, cross-hatch the fully loaded brush onto the stripe area working your way to the tape lines. Remember to paint away and not into the tape lines
10. Re-apply a second coat if necessary
11. Remove tape while wet. Removing gently
12. Let dry
13. Hang photos
