They also provide some great tips on what color might be best. For example, red isn’t just for farm houses; pink can be charming and retro; there are so many options for that perfect shade of blue…time to dust off the color palette; and beware of dramatic yellows, while bright and cheery, this color may turn buyers away if you are thinking of selling.
