Seems like a simple question right? Still, we want to paint once and choose the perfect paint color the first time around. So what colors should we be talking about for our bedrooms?
With 2020 just about behind us, but so not forgotten, the colors that we choose for our homes need to change – a lot! Instead of the ho-hum same old colors that everyone else has, now is the time to really be expressive. Many of us have been in the home way too long and by now, our homes are in dire need of some facelifts. This starts with color.
SPICY ORANGE: The first color I have shown about has been around for a while, it’s a spicy orange. Orange is the natural color progression when you’re pairing it with any type of blue. Out of all the oranges out there, from peach to Home Depot orange, a spicy hue is one of the best choices. I had it in my home several years back and loved it. Try Clove Bud by Valspar.
GOLD: Here is yet another color that I had in my home years ago when I lived in Pittsburgh, where the summers were short and the winters were long and cold. Nothing warms the house and heart like a deep, gold. I know, because I’ve felt this color and it is beyond a healing hue. It came into my life when I needed warmth, from the inside out. I highly recommend it. Try Veranda Yellow by Valspar.
GREEN: In just about any shade, green is my favorite color. It’s the color of the heart chakra and I love it because I’m a lover of the woods when it can be found in abundance. Green is also a very decor friendly. It goes with many styles from country to traditional. Valspar, in my opinion, has some of the best greens out there. I have Green Tea Leaves in my living room and adore it! This green will come across as very earthy and dark on the color chip but looks perfect in the southern home with a lot of big windows.
PURPLE: Most of the colors that I suggest here in my blog, I’ve had in my home. Purple is not one of them. I love the color but it just does not fit into my decor. Sure it’s great for a teen room but I am now an empty nester so that it out of the scenario. I also loved mixing blues and purples together, there was just something magical about that duo. You can always lighten this hue up to lavender which is great for a relaxing bedroom or mediations room. Darken it and it becomes more mature. Try Seattle Haze by Valspar.
So my friends let really get serious about color for the home for 2021. I’ve already picked my favorite and they are created in a very special way. They are Color Blends. Chose colors that uplift and mean something to you. As always, I will always recommend colors that represent the chakras.
