[…] Finally, let’s talk about wall paint.  A lot of people fall into the trap of choosing the paint colour first (which makes sense if you’re renovating and your room is empty) but it’s kind of like planning an outfit around a pair of shoes.  A paint colour should compliment the other elements in the room so pick it last whenever possible.  If you’re unsure you can’t go wrong with a great neutral like Benjamin Moore Seapearl OC-19.  It’s light without looking white, warm without being too pink and just grey enough to be contemporary.  If you love grey my favourite is Benjamin Moore Gray Owl 2137-60 (see my favourite spaces here).  For larger spaces that can handle a stronger shade try Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter.  Remember that a neutral wall paint colour will give you more decorating options.  Overwhelmed?
