Color for Living Room

  • The living room are heavy traffic areas and are the first places of your house that are visited by guests. Hence, they show the first impression about you and your personality. So choose the right kind of color combination that is both durable and attractive.

  •  Choose pastel colors as they provide brightness and charm to the living room.
  • Any of the warm red-yellow colors such as peach or rose can be a good choice to enhance the look.
  • Go for bright, bold colors such as hot pink, aqua and yellow as you only get glimpses of the space as you move through.
  • It is also advisable to use chocolate brown or very dark colors in satin or semi-gloss finishing, so that they don’t look dull and boring.

Thus, when the paint crackles, the darker color from beneath gives an interesting look to the living room walls. If you are using faux painting techniques, choose the right kind of paint.

Color for Bathroom

  • Fresh linen white seems a good bathroom color idea as it makes the bath room fresh, clean and simple and works well with almost all the colors and shades.
  • Crispy white bathrooms with light soothing blue tone (Blue creates a calming effect and it highlights the bath room for relaxation and treat. Blue also makes a bath appear larger).
  • Go for lime green and shades of pink (for a quiet, restful space).
  • Peach provides good reflection for the skin which is important in a room where applying make up and shaving are everyday happenings. 
  •  Certain warm shades like yellow, cream and apricot as they provide comfort, warmth and coziness. But these colors can make a small bathroom look even smaller. (When using warm colors, be sure to combine them with whites and neutrals to tone down some of their intensity/ strength).
  • For decoration in bath room, you can choose gold or light brown paint.
  • You can also choose your paint color that matches with the color of the tiles, mirror frame, towel, etc to create a decorative appearance.

 Note: Do not use dark colors in bathrooms that don’t get enough natural light or use plenty of artificial light to balance it. Dim light in dark bathrooms makes them too dark to apply make up.
