New Colors for Your Old Room


Picking a new color for a room could be the most irritating task you ever do when redoing your home, but it can also be the most rewarding. Colors have a lot of weight on our psyche whether we realize it or not. Colors affect our emotions, and are a key point in subconscious decision making. So why would you leave a room a color you don’t like?

On board? I’d hope so. So how about a little advice on colors and your room. Well, first off you need an idea, some inspiration. Maybe you love the forest, so you want a green room with brown accents. Maybe you love the beach, so then blues and beiges are the right colors for you. Inspiration will help you greatly when choosing new colors. If you have no inspiration, and you’re bad with colors look at a color wheel, do some research, or ask for help. Your local paint shop or hardware store will have plenty of people willing to help you out.

So let’s say you’ve got your ideas, and you’re ready to go buy a gallon or two and start painting. Stop. You need to make sure that the colors you want, will look right in your home. Lighting, regardless of whether your room is a rainbow or a monochromatic green, will change the look of your colors drastically. So try them out first. Stick a little bit on each wall of the room, and wait a couple days to see how the lighting affects them. That nice beige you fell in love with could look pink in the morning, and mustard yellow at the end of the day. Make sure you like what the lighting does with the colors before you paint.

Lastly, if you’re still unsure, be trendy. Even if you’re not “hip”, a trendy paint style will impress your guests, and look better when you go to sell your home. Remember your colors have a huge effect on you and everyone else whether you realize it or not. So picking a nice trendy style is a big deal. If you’re selling in the near future, stay with neutral colors instead of trendy.

About National Realty Group

National Realty Group was founded in October 1991 by Jeff Maas. It started as a two man office but soon grew to a medium sized office. One of the original agents formed a new home development company soon after. Steven Walker Homes is now a large national home builder. Southfork Mortgage Company Corp. was founded in April 1990 by the owner of a large home builder. Jeff Maas stepped in as its Broker in September 1993. With the help of Jeff Evens, Jeff Maas was able to expand the company. In July 1994, the owner of Southfork retired and Jeff Maas and Jeff Evens purchased the company. They continued the growth and soon built it into a multi-million dollar corporation. National Realty Group remained separate until Jeff Maas sold it to Southfork Mortgage in 1996. This allowed the owners to expand National Realty Group while allowing its agents to provide mortgage services to their clients. In 1996, a branch office of Southfork and NRG was opened in San Bernardino. It was later moved to Redlands in the most well-known office in the city. In 1998, they opened an office in Temecula in the Temecula Valley Bank office. The offices were expanded and closed 45 million in real estate and loan transactions in 1998. In 1999, Jeff Maas purchased the company from Jeff Evens becoming sole owner and broker. Shortly after the name was changed to National One Mortgage Corp. The company outgrew its 3000 square foot office in Riversideand moved to a building of approximately 6000 square feet. The growth continued at a spectacular rate. The company grew to over 40 agents within one year. The expansion continued with the addition of 2800 square feet and later adding more space for a combined total of nearly 13,000 square feet. At our peak we had over 125 agents and 12 employees in the Riverside office alone. During the summer of 2003, we opened an office in Temecula at the corner of Rancho California and Margarita. This office was soon bursting at the seams with 42 agents and 3 full time employees. Due to the increased demand for our unique programs, by the public and real estate agents, offices were opened in Corona and Ontario in early 2005. The year saw more amazing growth with offices opening in Moreno Valley, Hemet, Las Vegas and Norco. Rancho Cucamonga and Phoenix opened the first part of 2006. A Murrieta office opened summer of 2007. The economy has not been kind to many real estate and mortgage companies. We have remained strong and successful. Our business model of a One-Stop Shop provides the exact service and convenience the Home-Buying public desires and needs.
