Guest Author:  Gabrielle Gardiner

Surrounding yourself with calming colors is more powerful than you might think. With so much time spent in our homes lately, there’s no time like the present to start making it into a sanctuary. A fresh coat of paint on the walls is one of the most effective ways to create a home environment that promotes relaxation. Changing the color of your walls can also be the project that jumpstarts your other home improvement tasks. 

Color is a huge factor that plays into our home’s influence on us. When you pay attention to the different qualities of various color families, you can understand the patterns of color theory and their impact on our minds. Utilize your knowledge of color theory and give your home a more tranquil feel:

  • Pink: Brightening and elevating.
  • Blue: Refreshing and soothing.
  • Green: Uplifting and reassuring.
  • Beige/Brown: Nurturing and grounding.
  • Gray: Comforting and peaceful.
  • Purple: Inspiring and regal.

Below, you’ll find a practical guide on choosing a serene color scheme created by the team at  HomeAdvisor. By selecting the right paint colors, furniture, home accents, and plants, you can create an even more peaceful environment.
