3 Color Shades Sure to Make a Statement

Utilizing color, lighting, and décor can all help to create a statement room. The statement room is ever evolving around the latest design trends. What once was considered the man cave is now being repurposed; craft rooms, playrooms, or large primary suite walk-in closets are the latest bonus spaces taking shape.

Pastel and Neutral Shades

With Pinterest, Etsy and the maker movement taking over, craft spaces are now taking up space in our homes. People need organized workspaces that allow for storage of various items all together at a finger’s reach. Soft, pastel-colored walls are great in these types of spaces. Utilize white shelving and work surfaces to keep the palette simple, clean and bright. Clear glass storage containers, help to keep the space organized and let colorful items show.

Colors similar to beautiful pastels and neutrals:

Playful Shades

Kids playrooms are also becoming more popular in a bonus space or finished basement. Tree houses, tents, and castles are just one way to create a statement in a playroom; this can be created as a visual with paint alone or as a 3D sculpture inside the room. For additional depth, a drawbridge on a castle could swing down to let children into a secret play nook. A tire swing could hang from the branches of a climbable tree, or a fabric tent can be placed in the middle of a room painted with beautifully landscaped walls, providing extra hiding places. The kids will love it!

Use colors similar to these playful shades:

Rich Shades

Don’t forget about luxurious walk-in closets. Try placing a plush slipper chair in your walk-in closet for added drama and a place to rest or put on shoes. Add in a few floor-length mirrors, some dramatic drapery, and a beautiful chandelier. Keep colors simple and neutral so they don’t interfere with the color of your clothing, shoes, and accessories. You can also use this space to showcase and display your fine collection of handbags, heels, and jewelry.

      I need to paint my trim in a Toll Brothers house in The Oaks, Osprey, Florida. The paint listed on the specs is Toll white. Is there a Sherwin Williams comparable color? I am using SW ProClassic semi gloss extra white and it’s a bit bright.
