When you’re decorating, there are lots of decisions to make. But few are more daunting than picking the right color scheme. It’s more than just picking a shade you love. There’s so much more to consider. That’s why the Sacksteder’s Interiors design team offers Paint and Color Selection Services to take the guesswork out of choosing. The Sacksteders Interiors design team also works with your existing furniture and accessories to create a fresh new look for your home decor!
Paint color is the backdrop for every interior design project, and there are thousands of options. But before we get overwhelmed, let’s get back to basics and think about those primary colors you learned about years ago.
Our three primary colors are red, yellow, and blue. Then, our three secondary colors are orange, green and violet. And did you know, the three additive primary colors are red, green, and blue? This means that, by additively mixing the colors red, green, and blue in varying amounts, almost all other colors can be produced. And, when the three primaries are added together in equal amounts, white is produced!
Ok, you know the building blocks to construct your perfect color, but now what? ColorSnap is a fun tool created by Sherwin-Williams and will allow you to build a paint palette for any room. Upload a photo and the tool will create a custom color palette with coordinating Sherwin-Williams paint colors. Cool, huh?
How do you decide which colors to choose for your home? “The best way I can help you is to find what inspires you, what you like,” says Karen Sacksteder, owner of Sacksteder Interiors. “I believe the easiest way to narrow this decision down is by finding artwork that you would enjoy seeing displayed in your home.” Do you like bright and bold like this Uttermost Spring Floral Print, or muted and classic like this Uttermost Golden Tulip Print, or neutral and abstract like this Uttermost Stormy Seas Hand-Painted Canvas?

Reflect on Your Light Sources
The same color can look drastically different in various spaces. That’s largely due to the amount of light – and what kind of light – that color gets throughout the day. The warm tones of incandescent lights will have a different influence on the color than the natural light of daytime. We recommend getting a swatch of the colors you’re considering, hanging them up in the space and looking at them at all different times of day. Once you’re aware of how different light sources can affect your color choices, you can change your room’s “mood” to match the pace of your day.

Spring is in the Air, Soon Full of Color!
One way to freshen up your space through color is with floral arrangements. Sacksteder’s Interiors offers a large selection of affordable, high-quality silk floral arrangements in our two retail locations.
Add that beautiful organic look to any space with our floral centerpieces, wreaths, sconces and door swags. We are know for our custom designs — for your home or business — any time of year!
Our designers are here to help! Call to schedule a floral design consultation or stop by to meet with one of our floral designers in person. Bring pictures, fabric swatches, measurements, magazine clippings or Pinterest boards and we’re happy to create the perfect piece for you!
Our New Trenton location provides a large selection of floral stems, succulents and botanicals. Our designers will consult with you about the latest home and office botanical decor trends. A member of our design team will walk you through theme concepts or any room in your home or business.
