Colors. Did you think I wanted to see something else? Pervert. Just kidding. But really, show your colors. My Colortopia is back with a new tool, Show Your Colors, to let you show off your hard work. Or if you’re looking to paint a room, gain inspiration (and colors) from other rooms. I always say, paint is the quickest and cheapest way to change-up, add drama, lighten up, or add personality to a room.
Remember the bright red accent wall in our living room? Yeah, that was too much personality, and not ours.
Less than a gallon of gray paint and a few hours really lightened up and changed the room.
Painting our entertainment center a dark, moody gray added some drama. Trying out a golden yellow color was a fun way to add personality, but it wasn’t dark enough.
Keeping it dark and simple worked best here.
But in our windowless main bathroom, lightening up was the main goal.
The dark wood paneling and dingy beige paint sucked the light out of the room. After a full remodel, adding a shower, a linen closet, and changing every surface, time to paint. Bright white for the trim work and a light gray for the walls for a light, airy but still modern look.
A little personality goes a long way, so a blue painted vanity is a fun touch, although it’s not finished yet.
What room(s) have you painted recently? Or are in the process of painting? Did you go with a lighter color? Or choose a dark, moody color?
