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
These are considered to be neutral colours and tend to impart a clean and organized feel. White especially can make a space appear larger. These colours are also remarkably versatile, as you can change your furniture and accessories anytime without worrying about clashing.
Yellow hues radiate cheerful confidence and really brighten up a kitchen or hobby room. Throw in a bit of white or blue trim to add quaint charm.

A powerful, vibrant, and refreshing colour, pale shades of green are elegant in kitchen and living rooms, and darker shades are dramatic, especially as trim colours.
Classy, serene blue in any shade is a versatile colour, both indoors and out. Bright shades enliven any room, and blue-gray shades are elegant when used as exterior colours. Pale blues provide a soothing vibe in bedrooms.
A powerful shade, black is pure drama. Strong and elegant, it is a stunning exterior colour, especially on Victorian-style houses. Used indoors, it makes a terrific contrast with white or gray.
