Paint Colors That Speak Your Language

Color is a recurring theme in my blog posts. I am inexplicably drawn to them and the feelings they elicit. Few things affect our emotions more than color. That’s why it’s so important to choose wisely when painting rooms in our homes.

Take the time to buy samples and test them. What to do with the leftovers? Donate them… Paint a birdhouse…


Create art!


Just kidding!

If you are staying in the same color family as the samples, combine the contenders on a canvas. Add some texture and layers to get a piece that will work perfectly with your room.

Colors that mimic nature and combine different shades and hues tend to pull on our heartstrings. They speak to us. Color professionals call these “in-between” colors.
