Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent from TLC’s (aptly-named) Nate & Jeremiah by Design understand the transformative power of paint – and its influence is very much on their minds at present. The designers (who have partnered with Behr to offer a veteran family a home makeover) sat down with H&G to discuss all things paint-related. 

Understanding how to use paint is only effective if you know what to avoid, too, they say. So, what is the biggest error you can make when painting a room – and how could this paint idea negatively impact your home? Both designers agree: the answer comes down to your lighting. 

‘People often choose their paint color without considering the lighting of their actual space,’ Jeremiah says. ‘What you see in a store with fluorescent lighting is very different from the natural light that will change with every hour in your home.’

Nate Berkus emphasizes this, reinforcing that color reads differently depending on the time of day and your choice of lighting ideas – something many forget when experimenting with paint swatches. 

What should you do instead?
