    Seven Tips to a Beautiful Paint Job
    By simple observations, you can turn an old room new using paint.
    1. Start with something that you love for your new room - a painting,
      plate or pillow - and take your color clues from it.

    2. Dividing your wall with a horizontal line of color - like a contrasting
      chair rail - will make it appear wider, while making the
      ceiling appear lower.

    3. Repetition of color in your walls or accessories unites adjoining
      rooms to create harmony and visual interest.

    4. Beautiful moldings deserve special attention. Paint them white to
      highlight their details and create dynamic shadows.

    5. Introduce accent colors to a room in stages. Start with a pillow or
      throw to see how it blends with your palette.

    6. An entryway is a great place to give visitors a glimpse of what they'll
      see inside. Use color for a personalized welcome to your home.

    7. To achieve an attractive, balanced look for the exterior of your home,
      choose darker colors for the foundation, and lighter colors
      on the upper levels.
