Get Ready For The Carnival Season

Carnival SeasonThe Carnival season is upon us!  It started on January 6th and will last through Mardi Gras Day on February 25th.  Carnival Season is a lot of fun in New Orleans and we truly do fall in love with Purple, Green and Gold. You will see it everywhere – Clothing, Balconies, and even Paint colors. Did you know that all three Carnival Colors colors can be incorporated into your home design?

Be Vibrant

Paint one or more rooms in your home with one of the Mardi Gras colors to keep a little bit of  the season’s spirit in your house all year around. The colors are fairly bright, but remember you do not have to paint your entire room. Consider an accent wall to open up your space and give your room a modern feel. The colors of the season are purple, gold and green and they can really add dimension to any room.

Be Calm

If you do not like the vibrant purple, green and gold jewel tones for your home, consider a lighter hue. Lighter paint colors are perfect for a smaller room or for  a room that does not have enough light. A lighter paint color can even help make a small room seem bigger.

Benjamin Moore has over 3500 colors to choose from, and Helm Paint & Decorating can even create a custom color for your home. Whether you want the perfect Benjamin Moore Mardi Gras Purple or a customized Gold that matches your Rex Doubloons, Helm Paint & Decorating can deliver the perfect color match.  Once you are done painting, it’s time to enjoy some parades!
