    Posted: Oct 19 2013 at 5:24am
If you’re like a lot of homeowners, you’re nervous about taking big risks when it comes to painting your walls. Considering the amount of time, money, effort, and mess it takes to select and purchase paint, cover or move furniture, tape off a room, paint, allow the paint to dry, etc., it is no wonder many people just opt for a nice, safe, traditional white or cream or tan if you’re really daring. These colors match most furnishings and are long-lasting. You won’t have to paint over them in a couple years when trends change. And for some rooms and some people, these paint colors work perfectly.

Soft colors are more comfortable

However, if you feel so inclined, you need not restrict yourself to such generic design choices. Color is in and can be a great way to lighten a space, make it feel more open, and infuse a little of your personality into the home. Brian Kaufman, a writer with The Coloradoan, interviewed expert interior designer and company founder Toni Klein of Tuscany Interior Design. Klein said that “soft paint colors that one is comfortable in” are what make a room cozy, attractive, and livable.

Accent colors add visual interest

For instance, green can be a soft, natural color that connects your home a little more closely with the outdoors. Kaufman went on, “Blue is another cool color, associated with water and sky. A soft purple calms and offers a regal touch.” He has something to say about neutral colors like gray and off-white as well: They “can be interesting when paired with a dash of color through accessories.” Dashes of an accent color can be introduced through artwork like vases, sculptures, or paintings, or through accent furnishings, pillows, potted plants, and rugs. The key is to have the accent color make up about 10-20 percent of the room, rather than balancing the colors equally.

Another way to effectively use accent colors is to use variations on the same color throughout the room. Kaufman said, “Cool colors can give a room both a relaxed feel and visual interest. Try using variations of one color, such as a pale green spiced with touches of  a darker green, like hunter. The color scheme can be even more effective when your color choice is reflected in your furnishings or accessories.”

Consider lighting

The amount of natural and artificial lighting a room has can influence color choices. Depending on the light you have, certain colors are more likely to show up more brightly. Florescent lighting is  more blue, incandescent is yellow, and natural light contains every color of the rainbow.
