Kingston – Home Color Selector – IMG_7334 and 7335
Color creates impact and atmosphere, and it is one of the first things that people notice when entering a room. Color can make a home appear bright and fresh, or grand and formal; it can change the look and feel of a home almost instantly. Color also has mood-enhancing qualities, so it is essential that we surround ourselves with colors that we like and make us feel good inside our homes.
