Warm and cool spaces
Choosing colors for a room can be exhausting. Generally reds, oranges and yellows encourage socializing. Greens, purples and blues create calming, tranquil and relaxing spaces.
Choosing to go light or dark is similar to going to the hair salon, literally. After that, get tester jars to get a preview of the color before painting the room. In the room, apply paint to only a section of the wall about a 1 foot wide and 1 foot high, in a shape of a square. If you have more colors you need to try, paint more squares. After a few days, it will be easier to make your selection. (#benjaminmoore #colorsamples)
