Making Interior Spaces Dramatic with Paint

If a life without drama leaves you wanting, seek no further. By combining bolder shades with their more neutral counterparts, you can effortlessly create a space high on impact.

When you want a room that wows, dare to design boldly. Create striking contrasts. Showcase scale in grandiose proportions. And don’t forget an extravagant application of eye-catching color. In fact, paint is among the easiest and quickest ways to inject a strong dose of charisma into any space. Let Sherwin-Williams show you how.

 

Edgy Glamour

No color creates excitement quite like red. Here, the intensity established by painting an entire paneled wall in Chinese Red is punctuated by the crisp, graphic contrast of black lacquer furniture and white upholstery. The result is quite exotic

 

Green With Envy

An entry hall provides a perfect opportunity to make a big impression with the first impression. A lush green-on-green palette shows even a monochromatic scheme can be bold when used unexpectedly. The gloss door finish reflects the overall opulence.

 

Secret Intrigue

Don’t be afraid of the dark—particularly in small rooms. The stealthy ambiance established by shrouding spaces in deep tones can feel surprisingly inviting. Consider using a range of colors from the same family to create contrast and accentuate architectural details.

 

Final Thoughts

With paint, your options are limited only by your imagination! For more creative color ideas, make sure to check out Sherwin Williams and their National Painting Week.
