Colour your home with these nine happy hues

One of the more enjoyable parts of having a home is being able to choose its colours. Some prefer the clean, bright airiness of all white, while others prefer the gothic drama of rich, dark reds, blues, and blacks. If you’re looking to impart your personality and style to colour your home, check out these ideas.

White, off-white, pale gray, and beige
