What colors bring you joy when you are surrounded by them? For example, the color yellow is often referred to as “intense” and “energetic.” Rooms which are fully saturated in this color can bring about feelings an array of feelings from cheerfulness to flat out frustration and anger.

How Do You Want to Feel?
Because color can evoke strong emotions, think about how you want to feel in a certain room. Do you want a light and airy feel to your living room? Do you want to set the tone for a restful night’s sleep in your bedroom? What colors bring out the best in your children? These are all things to consider when choosing a color for a room.
Come into the Light
The lighting of a room will have a tremendous impact on your color choice. For example, gray can give off purple, green, blue, even red hues, and this can be due to the amount and type of natural light in a given room. For example, natural light coming from the north is blueish in tone and will contribute to the blue undertones you may see in what was your supposed neutral gray color of choice. Before you fully commit to a color, see what it looks like during all points of light during the day.
Most paint stores will allow you to purchase sample sizes and we highly recommend doing so. Bring the samples home and test them out in your home. Design ideas and pictures online are great for ideas but they will not give a ta true representation of what a given color will look like in your home specifically. Do yourself a favor and don’t buy a paint color without testing it out first.
