Nate Berkus & Jeremiah Brent Avoid This Paint Mistake At All Costs
Married interior designers Jeremiah Brent and Nate Berkus revealed that you could be making a huge mistake by not thinking about how the lighting in a room can impact paint color.
Brent stated, "What you see in a store with fluorescent lighting is very different from the natural light that will change with every hour in your home."
For example, you may love how a paint shade looks in broad daylight, but the dimmer light your home receives in the evening may produce a less flattering color.
To avoid this, Brent recommended taking "swatches of paint, putting them on the wall in the actual room you'll be painting, and watching how their hue evolves throughout the day."
Berkus said, "Experiment with a couple of color options and live with them for a day or two." A color that looks great in natural lighting may be too dark in a windowless room.
