Choosing colors wisely

I have to agree with Jake about being bold with your colors selections.  However, what Jake's wife did was to be creative with a few rooms.  The rest of their home is fairly conservative.  The outside of his home is also very neutral.  In my opinion, that is the safest way to experiment.  Even Jake wasn't sure about the color of his room until his wife decorated it to match.  Paint is cheap to replace, but brick, stucco, shingles, flooring, counter tops and cabinets are not.  Be conservative with the expensive items, but have fun with paints and decorations.  That will help to indivualize your home.  Just remember that a home is for you, but it is also a very large investment.  Be wise with your decisions.

By the way Jake's home is a craftsman style home plan.  He carried the craftsman theme throughout the entire home.  I know Jake likes a lot of different styles, but he refrained himself from mixing styles.  It is actually very difficult to achieve.  Jake's last home we built was a country style home plan. He was able to use a lot of the same furnishings because country and and craftsman styles have some similarities.  Think of your furnishings and decide if they will match the style of home plan you are contemplating.  Just a thought...

Happy home plan hunting
