If you’re looking for an easy, inexpensive way to change a room, painting is a great place to start. You can lighten, brighten, soothe or add drama to any space (and even some home furnishings) with just a couple coats of paint. Best of all, painting a new color lets you reinvent the space and claim it as your own—while expressing your personality and individuality.
Not sure what your color personality is right now? Behr Paints® has a few suggestions. Its design and color trends guides offer paint shade recommendations that fuse classic elements with contemporary flair to emphasize comfort, ease and functionality.
