When designing any room, the best place to start is the paint color. It sets the atmosphere for the entire space – light and bright, beautiful and bold, or dark and cozy. You must also keep in mind that you don’t have to stick to just one color; rather you can get as creative as you want! Think about a feature wall, color blocking, or even a gorgeous ombre. I have gathered plenty of inspiration to get you started on your painting journey!
However, if you choose this color category, you’ve got to add other interesting elements to your room to keep it from feeling, well, boring. You don’t want your space to feel like an under-designed apartment! So if you choose to go light and bright, expose interesting architectural features, choose brightly colored modern accents, hang art, or make your furniture a strong focal point.
We will start with the simplest and most commonly chosen wall colors – light walls. Light walls are common for a reason; they give your space a fresh and clean feel. For small spaces, a light wall color is perfect because it will make the space feel bigger and more open. Additionally, this is the most versatile wall category. Light and bright walls look great in almost any style of home! For a Scandinavian Modern look choose clean white, for an airy crisp room choose a light blue, and for a country cottage choose cream or a hint of yellow. This wall choice truly has a lot of potential.
