Dramatic Colors for Your Home

When it comes to interior paint color schemes, choosing white interiors is a popular design direction. But, if white is not your cup of tea, another growing trend is the use of saturated colors.  Since many of us are fearful of making a room too bold or dark, a logical option is to use strong colors in small doses — be it a door, a powder room, a ceiling or even a large room that gets minimal use. And saturated color does not need to be bright — a deep charcoal, moody green or rich navy adds sophisticated drama to any space.

Still not sure about your home interior paint ideas? If you choose to go with a bright or moody color on your walls, you can mingle in varying tones of the hue on fabrics and add a dose of white to rest your eye.

And remember, regardless of the house color schemes of your interior, enjoy your home and make it yours!

A rich color on your front door serves to highlight the entry and enhance curb appeal.

There’s no shortage of wall color schemes to choose from. Here, walls and millwork in varying sheens of the same color add glamorous sophistication.

Think broadly when it comes to your interior design color palette. Powder rooms offer, even the most timid among us, the perfect opportunity to go bold like this navy powder room.

Be open to interior wall paint ideas that can brighten your home and your mood. Beadboard and shiplap are perfect for handling the demands of a busy mudroom, while a dose of color lifts your spirits even on a rainy day. (Orange shiplap mudroom)
