[MUSIC] When picking paint colors and picking the intensity of the color, you want a little bit of contrast between the two colors that you are working with. So just look at the spectrum that's on your paint chip fan. And maybe pick two that, you know one is a lighter tone and one is a darker tone so that there's a little bit of contrast, but not this huge shocking contrast. So you're ready, and you are going to paint your walls a really dark grey. Which is a beautiful color. Just make sure that you have different tones of that color throughout the room, or another color that works. Because if you start then having your furniture dark grey, and your carpet dark grey, and pillows. It's turning into this dark cave of a room. So, what you wanna do is yes, you can have a gray sofa no problem. Add a pop of color with pillows, add a throw, maybe use a natural seagrass carpet in there to add a little bit of a neutral or a natural element to the room. Just make sure there is some sort of. Color, so everything just doesn't get lost in the paint. [MUSIC]
