Sometimes small changes can make a big difference. When it comes to your home, remodeling or revamping the interior can be a stressful and expensive process. As an alternative option, however, changing the color of the walls, be it outside or inside, can feel like a major shift without some of the added headaches. Check out some of these colors depending on the look or feel you want to impart upon your walls.

green bedroom

Green. Green is a great color for bedrooms because it has both warm and cool elements, and the variety of shades can complement the furnishings you already have. Green goes especially well with painted or bare wood furniture, giving a pop without replacing anything. You can also utilize other shades of green furniture in order to have a more modern or electric look.

tan living room

Tan. Major rooms such as the living room can gain a fresh, lively look with tan paint. Tans open up your space and go well with brown furniture and even muted shades of green and red. You have a lot to work with when it comes to this paint color, so don’t feel boxed in by the furniture that you already have. Something as simple as hanging a painting or adding a pillow can really open up the color.

gray house

Putty. Putty, warm toupes and gray hues are a great choice for the exterior of your home. This blends in great with natural surrounds – the grass, trees and garden additions. This color is an especially great choice if you have stone in your driveway, on your home walls or in the foundation. White trim goes well with this choice, and you will be an attractive piece of the neighborhood without standing out obnoxiously.

parchment bathroom

Parchment. This buttery yellow is an excellent paint color choice for smaller areas that are frequented, such as the bathroom. It warms too-cool places, and it also goes great with metallic accents, which might be prevalent in your bathrooms at home. Feel free to add accents in shades of pink to complement your new color.
