Color scheme for teenagers room


To make a small room seen larger while keeping it cozy, paint 4/5ths of the wall one color and 1/5 another. The usual rule is 3/5ths and 2/5ths but when you want just a scallop or pattern toward the top of the walls, the 4/5ths method works beautifully.

In this particular room (Kelsey's room) we are going to paint the bottom portion the green in the 2nd picture, and the top portion in the pink. Instead of flowers at the top, we are going to place decorative knobs at the points of the scallops that will coordinate with the accent colors of the room.

I will post the before and after pictures.
