Time to Redecorate Your Bedroom

Your bedroom is like your oasis, your zone where you can decorate with what you want without opinions. At least you hope so! At Factory Paint and Decorating we love the C & F bedding, and so do our customers. The selection is vast and the throw pillows are so decorative you can't help but want one in each color. All bedding is cotton, prewashed and easy to clean. The bedding ensembles are available in queen and king, with a few in the twin size. The collections are complete with matching throw pillows, shams, bed skirts, rugs and some even with matching valance and drapery panels.

If you are making the investment in new bedding, most likely you are interested in repainting the room as well. We have included our paint color selections with each bedding collection. These are just suggestions so fell free to explore your own color palette.

Natural Shells Bedding Collection
The nautical bedding collection, the #1 seller at Factory Paint & Decorating, also encompasses valances (80" width x 15" height) and drapery panels (50" width x 84" height) to give you a complete look.

Learn How to Save when Decorating an Apartment

Decorating an apartment can be tough as you generally can't do anything that is permanent or you may not want to invest a lot of money on a home where you know you won't be for very long.  Here are some helpful tips of how you can decorate inexpensively.

Buy paint at a reduced price! The "mistinted" paint is a great alternative to buying a brand new gallon of paint. Our "mistinted" paint is just that, it was mistinted-made incorrectly.  The only draw back is the limited color selection.

Closeout Wallpaper and Border is a great alternative to paint if you want to bring more character in to the room. Wallpapering just one wall or hanging a border will add warmth and charm to the room. Within our South Weymouth store we have a large selection of clearance wallpaper and border starting as low as $5.00 per roll and borders as low as $1.99 per spool. You could also look at a select amount of discontinued patterns online before you make the trip in.

Peel and stick wall decals are the way to go when decorating an apartment or dorm room. The selection is vast and the variety is great.

DC Fix, better known as contact paper, is a great remedy for counter tops, table tops, cabinets, anything you want to recover or give a "face lift".

We have two color option for cordless ready made honeycomb blinds, white and natural. The cordless option is great for homes that have pets or children. The inexpensive blind is very easy to install and can either be mounted on the inside of the window or the outside.

Paint Color Trends for 2014

The anticipation of over! We now know Benjamin Moore's 2014 color selections. Breath of Fresh Air has been chosen to be the color of the year for 2014.

The selection of colors is all over the color spectrum. From black to coral to deep purple to light green there are so many colors to work in to your decor. Or better yet change your decor to match one of these colors!

When you are ready to repaint your room, the first step is deciding what the room will be used for. If you are looking for the space to be a peaceful tranquil setting the "spa" colors, as we like to call them are ever present in the 2014 selection. The Mt. Rainier Gray and the Palladian Blue are great colors to go with.

For those that want to take a bolder approach and make a statement with color, Caribbean Teal, Van Deusen Blue and Super Nova are definite contenders to achieve such a look!
