Pick The Correct Colors For Your Walls!

The color you decide to paint your home has been proven to have a huge effect on your day-to-day mood! With this being said, it may be beneficial to take a little extra time when selecting hues. You need to know what specific influence different colors have over the ambiance in your home. Here are a few interesting color tips to pay attention to:

  • Black and white are great selections when you are trying to achieve a dramatic and sophisticated look. Be sure to pick colors that are across from each other on the color wheel. If you would like to make the room less harsh, opt for a soft blue or green as an accent color.
  • If you are looking to paint a home office or library, choose whites, beiges, or greys. These colors encourage contemplation. If you want to spice it up a bit, throw in some strong jewel tones such as fuchsia!
  • Does a tranquilizing bedroom sound appealing to you? If so, select pink or blue, and then decorate using both darker and lighter shades of the same color.
  • Additional excellent options for bedrooms include purples and greens. These colors promote relaxation, while also fostering the idea of luxury.
  • While yellow is a very happy color, it is not a very relaxing one. If you want to use yellow, keep it on the kitchen walls.
  • If you keep a color close to brown, it becomes more neutral. If you really want to use a color, but you think it is too bright, simply tone it down by bringing it closer to brown.

Choose colors that will best compliment your lifestyle, and subsequently make you happy!
