The wall colors you choose for your home can do more than just coordinate with your furnishings and decor; they can actually affect the mood of the room and even create the impression of more (or less) space.

  • Don’t be afraid of color– While some colors can make a small space look smaller, that doesn’t mean that you have to stick to boring white! Consider the purpose of the room and choose a color accordingly. For instance, a bedroom should have a soothing color while an office should have a color that energizes you and helps you focus. Pale celery green is a popular choice that works well in contemporary and transitional spaces.
  • Use color temperature– Cool colors are the most effective at making walls recede visually. Pale blues and greens will not only make a space seem larger, but are restful and ideal for bedroom, bathrooms, and other soothing spaces.
  • Go bold- While it’s not suited to every space, a well-placed bright can work well in small spaces. For instance, a small powder room can look great with a luminous tangerine or yellow. You probably wouldn’t want to paint your whole living room the color, but in a small space it can really shine, giving the room a jewel box sparkle.
