Need a little project motivation?  We’ve pulled the below five inspirational ideas for adding some color into your home.     

Adding Accents

This bathroom is a great example of an accent color being low-impact while still providing balance and dimension in a room. Using a brighter and more toned version of the same color will create this kind of subtle and interesting effect.

The Right Light

Tired of white, but not the light and airy feeling it imparts?  You might want to consider a jump to pastels.  These soft and delicate colors come in all degrees of vividness from bright to muted.

Trim of a Different Color  

There is no hard-set rule that says your trim and molding must be a shade of white.  Using a color in place of a white can add elegance and intrigue.

Excite your Entry

Two Tone Walls

Walls divided by moldings are perfect for creating a two color look.  Lighter and darker tones of the same color, or a neutral with a color are combinations that work well for this design.
