Question
HI,
My husband and I are planning on painting our spare bedroom, which has like a dark green carpet. We were thinkin of painting the walls like a medium shade of blue or so and he wanted to put clouds on the walls..it will eventually be a kids room. So i was wondering if that was a good idea and if it would look good with the dark green carpet? Thanks

Answer
Janice,

Thanks for writing and for your question.  

I would lean toward a light blue - not pale, just not as heavy as a medium hue to keep the space airy and a bit lighter.  Clouds on the walls oould be painted in with a billowy white and even touches of pink.

It will be a great kid's space!

Best,
Jenny

College, advertising, public relations, marketing, free-lance writing and a plethora of creative endeavors have led me here.

Some three thousand questions ago, I wondered if I could really help. Obviously, I'm still here and still taking your questions. God Bless You!
