There’s nothing quite like color to set the mood. A room painted in soft white will make you feel fresh and serene. Put a sea-foam blue on the walls and you’ll be hankering for summer and the beach. Paint them a deep biscuit brown and you’ll feel warm and cozy.
A new take on cozy colors are in season right now – colors you wouldn’t normally pick as “warm” like the classics of red and yellow, but those that with the right accessories, will cocoon you right through winter. That includes the rich and delicious real true blue. Accepted views will tell you that blue is a cool color which may be true of a sky or marine blue but this deep navy is a perfect wintery color, especially teamed with shots of pink and red. Likewise, the soft olive grey you’ll find usually on bedrooms would be a cool restrained shade for the walls. But paired with burnt orange bed linen and a moody grey lamp base, it’s transformed into a color that will keep you in bed far too long in the morning.
Everybody loved the way color can completely transform a room or a house so that you see it in a new light. Over the years, we have seen the sheer delight when people finish decorating and are surrounded in colors that they love. Like dressing up for a night on the town, a fresh coat of colorful paint can do wonders to your mood. Unlike clothing which you can hide in the back of your wardrobe if it loses its appeal, decorating involves much more of a commitment to your choices.
Once you’ve invested time in choosing the right colors, it’s important they look good on the walls as they did on the color chart. Some paint colors are tinted with special highly concentrated non-VOC tinters using exclusive formulations. This makes them unique and authentic.
