Mood Change

Isn't it amazing how simply changing the wall color in a space can drastically change the mood? Benjamin Moore Co. recently posted a few photos showing how their paint colors do just that! In addition to their inspiration, I am sharing some other images that show how paint has been used to set the tone. What are your favorite paint colors to use for more intimate spaces? What about for brighter, more open spaces?

Happy Hump Day!

Love these chairs above too!!

Images from 1,2,3,4,5


  1. Those pink chairs are FAB!

  2. I LOVE Paint! I cannot wait to find out what #2 is so I can get into that room and paint! Let me know if you find a good "rugby green" any where. If its a boy I want to go that color. Our dining room is a great barn red, our living room a beautiful sage, hallway is golden chenille (aka sepia tan) and for our bedroom... Philadelphia Cream.

  3. Gosh I love that coral color in the last image. Do you know what it is?

  4. Gray is a favorite color of mine, but a great gray paint color is SO hard!!! What are your favorites? I chickened out with a blue/gray/purple that's light for our house. And I LOVE it! It's called Heaven by BM. But I still crave a sexy charcoal somewhere...

  5. Are those chairs pink in the gray room? (ps - painted the bf's room that color and it is amazing)...I would love those chairs!!

    And the orangey room at the bottom is really wonderful, too. Surprised how much I'm drawn to it!

    new to your blog :)

  8. Those chairs on the second photo are stunning!

  9. I am in the process of picking out paint for a playroom right now. I love looking and choosing paint colors. It is the cheapest decorating tool we have!!

  10. I love how wall color can completely change the room's mood. Color is so powerful.

  11. Fascinating - I love to play around on any site that lets you change the color of things; sometimes the end result is so strikingly unexpected yet effective!
