When painting your home, take cues from color psychology

Shade: White
White, unlike black, conveys peace, simplicity, and spaciousness. It can provide a crisp finish to almost any paint job by adding sharp contrast to the wall color.

Used throughout a room, it can give the illusion that the space is bigger than its physical dimensions.

  • Ceiling: blank – creates lightness, reflects light and reduces shadows.
  • Walls: neutral to empty, clean.
  • Floors: intimidating.

White indicates delicacy, refinement and sophistication. White may be too harsh as an interior color in some climates. All-white work environments encourage great precision.
