When you put color on your window and not the wall, the window becomes the focal point. This is great when only a small bit of color is desired in that space and the window is small. Is it the right choice for you, though? Talk to a trained consultant at Windo VanGo in Baltimore. We’ll be happy to help you determine the right level of pizzazz for your room.Continue Reading
