Sometimes, deciding what color to paint your wall takes more time than the painting process. Choosing the right color for your home can be overwhelming, especially if there are so many colors to choose from. To narrow down your choices, ask yourself: How do you want your home to feel? What vibe are you going for? Do you want a minimal and sophisticated vibe for your home? Do you want the room to feel energizing and cheerful? How about cool and calming? If you know the feel that you want for your home, then choosing the right color will be easier.

Watch this video featuring the readily available paint colors from the Boysen Color Series to help you decide which color can create the mood that you want for your dream space.

Neutrals: A Practical Choice

If you’re dreaming of a space where you can feel safe, neutrals will give you that assurance. These paint colors are always the crowd favorite because they’re timeless and versatile. If you live in a small space, neutral colors will help you create a room that feels more spacious.

Neutrals don’t have to feel flat or boring. Try painting your walls with two neutral tones to add depth and dimension to your space. You can get the look of the pegs below by using B-708 Gray Castle and B-726 Stone Beige on your walls.

Reading Nook

Create a cozy reading nook with neutrals. Neutrals are suited for spaces where you need to focus. Some people might feel sleepy reading in a room painted in cool colors, while others might feel overstimulated or distracted by bold, warm colors. On the other hand, these subtle neutrals inspire you to concentrate so you can finally finish a chapter.

Dining Area

We recommend that you paint the walls of the common areas in your home with neutrals especially if family members have clashing color preferences. It’s like the buffer zone where the family can gather together and enjoy a meal.

Cool Colors: Anxiety Reliever         

Many might consider cool colors as whispering colors, but they’re listening colors as well. Warm hues are like motivational speakers hyping you up so you can slay dragons while cool colors listen to your rants and accept your melancholic side. Cool hues let you sit with your emotions and validate your sadness.
