The colors that you select for your home create a distinct atmosphere your new Parry Custom Home. Since you want to set the right tone for your home and the place you spend the most of your time, you want to be sure to choose colors for the rooms of your home that will create the atmosphere that you enjoy being in. Color can enlarge a space and also make it feel more inviting. The trick is to select the right version of a particular color. There are different hues for blues, for instance, and they won’t all create the same effect and atmosphere in the rooms of your new Parry home. Parry Custom Homes, a premier Pittsburgh on your lot builder, shares a guide to gain insight about colors that you may use in your new home in Pittsburgh.

White: White is a pure serene color and it is an obvious choice if you want to create a calm atmosphere in the rooms of your Parry home. But white is also a cool and impersonal color. It is great for making rooms feel large, but it is also a very hard color to warm up, especially if the light that enters the room faces north. If you choose white that has cream or a hint of pink in it, it will warm the color up a bit. Stick with pure white if you are teaming it with black.

Blue: Traditionally, blue is related to calmness and comfort. It is an ideal choice for bedrooms and bathrooms. Blue comes from the cold side of the color wheel so you want to choose your blue color for the rooms of your home carefully. If you choose dark blue or navy, this is a great application for a living room or a room with high ceilings, because it will make the walls appear near to you.

Green: Like blue, green is also a soothing shade and is great for a living room, bedroom or office. It is a shade that reflects nature and renewal. Green evokes positive energy without the feeling of being over stimulated, which makes it a great choice for a home office.


We have just touched on some of the colors that you may be interested in for your new home. Next week we will continue with looking at colors and finding the one that relates to you and will be perfect for your Parry Custom Home.
