Color affects your mood, it’s a proven fact. When choosing paint colors for your home or office, think of what type of ambiance you want to create. If you want the space to feel cozy, choose a slightly darker, richer tone – such as for a master bedroom or retreat area.

If you want the space to look larger and feel brighter, choose a lighter, neutral color – such as for a living room with low ceilings or not a lot of natural light.
