Decorating can be brought to life with a pop of color, but choosing the right color is the most important factor to consider.
Regardless of the color you're considering, always look at the lighting in the room that you're going to paint, as colors can look different on a wall that is exposed to natural light than in the store which is filled with artificial lighting. Northern emanating light cools colors, and dark shades may help to warm a room that has a cool personality.
Red is a bold color that can be used if applied in the correct setting. Dining rooms do very well with red and an accent wall can be a fun way to incorporate this passionate color into your home, though be cautious with bedrooms, bathrooms or living spaces, simply due to the intensity of this color.
Yellow is a happy color that can transform any room into a lively space. Pastel yellows are especially pleasant and can be incorporated well into many homes without drawing too much attention to this shade.
Green, the color of growing things, is connected to thoughts of health and luck. It is surprisingly versatile, especially if your furniture is simple and chic. It is also loved for its easiness on the eyes.
Blue is a lovely color to incorporate as an accent or a statement color. It is associated with sea and sky and the right tones can have a calming effect.
