Skyward by Jennifer Vranes

Typically art galleries paint their walls white, beige or pale gray for their display walls to keep the focus on the artwork. But, at home, add extra pizzazz by doing just the opposite and use rich, intense color on your walls. If you make color your focal point and first impression, even those tatty pieces you can’t wait to replace will become less noticeable.

Colored walls also compensate for poor architectural details. If you have beautiful moldings, trim, niches or built-ins, your walls look great in most any color. Some architectural designs are better in whites and beiges but the use of bold color to distract the eye can create something special where the builder didn’t.

If your room gets lots of sun and sometimes feels “too warm”, cool it down by painting the walls with a cool color. Likewise, if your room feels too frosty, warm it up with a warm paint color. The way we perceive a room affects the way we feel, and you can balance the extremes with the right color and the right art work.
