When painting your home, take cues from color psychology

Color: Brown
The light values of brown are good environments for work or for living, while the red-browns have a good use in interiors because they bring warmth and comfort.
  • Ceiling: dark hues are heavy, but work in high, open ceilings, especially to conceal exposed ductwork.
  • Walls: mid-tone and dark hues can evoke richness, warmth and comfort. Soft hues are natural and create a neutral backdrop for furnishings.
  • Floors: implies durability, stability and reliability.
