Why paint one wall a darker or lighter color than the rest?
By Dorothy Robinson from Minneapolis, MN
Just for a change. I just painted 1 wall of my living room. The other 3 walls are an off-white and I wanted something to perk it up. I like the off-white but just wanted ...something. The wall I painted faces east and has 3 floor to almost ceiling windows each 4 feet wide. I painted the small part above and beside the windows a pale sage green. Now it looks like the outside is almost in my house. That's why I did it.

Will painting one wall in a small bedroom a dark color make the room look smaller?
