Designer Tyler Wisler says, “Oh, the right paint color can really transform a room! It can intentionally make a space have a cool and slick feeling, or cozy it up in a few strokes of a saturated roller.”

He says, “I think the colors that have underlying tones of grey are just perfect for the trends happening right now. A great one that has a slight bit of warmth is Benjamin Moore’s Affinity Color-Storm AF-700. Another favorite is Benjamin Moore’s Affinity Color-Wisteria AF-585, which has a tint of lavender in it. It’s a tone that is surprisingly gender neutral, and provides a great backdrop for so many color combinations when accessorizing.”

He then says, “One of my go-to colors is sort of not even a color… Benjamin Moore’s Black Chalkboard paint is the best non-color to really set off a room! When applied it reads a dark charcoal hue, making anything surrounding it just POP! I just used the chalkboard paint for a makeover show, George to the Rescue. The results were spectacular!”

    Consulting an expert in home design wouldn't hurt. Personally, I'm really thankful to even know John Hayson. I can't even imagine how much of a disaster our home would be if we never met him.

    Ambiance and overall style are a couple of things a lot of homes and hotels tend to overlook. Thank God my usual central london hotel is very particular about these things. Otherwise, I'd have to go through the trouble of finding a new place to stay when I'm in town.
