Clark and kensington and opi paint and nail polishes 1When you pick up a color palette from Clark + Kensington, on the flip side of it, you get information on what the undertones of the color are and what works with it. That’s similar when you’re looking for a foundation.

There are also coordinating Clark + Kensington shades, so you don’t have to guess what is the right accent shade when showcasing architectural details in a room, or painting furniture. Can’t figure out what shade to use? Pick up a Clark+Kensington sample for $4.99. Interior paint starts at $8.49.

When I took the model room tour, I had a chance to speak with three interior designers. Here are their home decorating tips:

Living Room

 Opi clark and kensington model living roomTalk about a sophisticated showplace. This living room is like a cross between gilded Hollywood and Holly Golightly’s New York City. At the same time, it’s a comfortable room where you want to kick off your shoes, not a stage set. The room was created by interior designer  and Ace Hardware Interior Design Expert, Katie Reynolds.  Reynolds’ design firm, Lilli Designs is based in Dallas, Texas. She creates beautiful nurseries and children’s bedrooms.
