Decorate With Colors that Make You Look Good

Want to look good at home? It makes sense that we should try decorating with colors that compliment us. You wouldn't wear unflattering-colored clothing, would you? Then why would you color your home in anything but what compliments you? Here's a quick little guide to colors that can make you look good.

Studies have shown that peach is the most complimenting color for women above the age of 50, but it's a great color for many people. Peach gives skin a pretty and youthful-looking glow. Try it in a bathroom so when you're looking in the mirror, being critical of yourself, there's less to be critical of!

Have dark brown eyes and hair? Go for the chocolate! You're one of the lucky ones that can handle dark, rich walls. You can also handle bold color choices such as reds & oranges & bright yellows. These colors will compliment your dark features.

Blue-eyed? Try grays, blues & aquas. They'll make your eyes stand out & look clear.

A red-head? Think about olives & greens. They provide the perfect contrast to your hair & make it look richer & more vibrant.

Fair-skinned? Think about using lighter colors & neutrals that will make you stand out. You don't want to get lost in a room with colors that overpower you.

All that aside, I'm not a stickler for rules, so if you happen to be a redhead who wants a pink room, then by all means, do what makes you happy!
